    Years ago Honda introduced a Goldwing with an airbag

    Successful people build each other up. They motivate, inspire and push each other. Unsuccessful people just hate, blame and complain.

    Under certain conditions that air bag could do some serious damage. Or it could save you from hitting the wind shield with your face.
    Time will tell.
    ITS ALL GOOD

    3-4 years ago, I read that nobody has died in a head on, riding a GW w/ a airbag....
    I don't see how it can hurt anything in a crash.
    People are always afraid of something new. More so, if don't understand it. Things like computers, fuel injection, tubeless & radial tires, seat belts, front wheel drive, automatic tranny, even safety glass & the list goes on.

    Somewhere I read that only 3 Goldwing crashes were reported in the US involving the air-bag deploying. Might have been on the GW web-site??..Regards

    Opas may very well be right. I was trying to remember, 7 comes to mind but it was less than 10. At my age, a case of CRS, seems to be normal.
