do you think eject function would be handy?

it will be last resort safety feature, small parachute in the backpack and eject button next to the kill switch. Now none of those "oh sh#$%t" moments will kill you. I'd rather have this then ABS.

What about premature ejection? I hear that can happen to older riders.

Yea, sure, eject right into the powerlines. Then the driverless bike hits a minivan.

A huge airbag would me more effective, as the truck behind you punts you infront of another truck, while you laugh yourself silly inside.

I think it's a great idea as long as there is a remote control in my hand so I can decide when to launch your ass off the seat.

Long as you can lay it down first, then eject, I don't see a problem.

my bikes seem to already have an eject function...

i don't seem to have a lot of control over when it deploys, though.

My bike has ABS.

Rather have a "Lay Her Down" button.

Or maybe get ejected straight up in a tunnel and they have to peal you off the roof with some big scraper things,kinda like the Coyote in the Road Runner series.
