I usually got a pretty bad headache about two or 3 times a month before the wreck. Not one headache since the crash. Not one.

The wreck fixed your neck!  It is built-in, free chiropracty!

Walking around your hose is the answer, apparently before the accident you were stepping on it.  ::)

Made a serious inquiry with Niehaus Honda in Illinois on a new Goldwing Airbag model today. Looks like that's gonna happen.

Thanks, Snake. Been too long. My two wheeled therapist is important stuff. LOL

Does that mean you'll need the inflatable suit too?
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

Haha! Physics, Guys.  LOL The statistics of the airbag Wing are pretty impressive. Last time I found the info, there had been 300 accidents since 08 with the right angles, and inertia to deploy the bag, with zero fatalities.

Justa fyi;
One of our own. "Walter" {2015 OtP Traveler} is still with us because of one of these bags..
Don't know exact details, but as I understand.
After participating in the OtP ride that Cliff made last year Walter was on the road to another destination.
A car crossed into his lane and he apparently hit the rock wall to avoid.
Luckily he hit at an angle and the bag did its thing.
Was pretty bunged up but is still with us.

Photo's of the bike are somewhere in the COG Forum and you can see the deployed bag on a "badly" damaged Wing..

Ride safe, Ted
