Yeah what happens if you have a minor off and they trigger? Can you get back on and ride? Is there a means of letting the air out to allow you to continue?

Must be, surely?!

Yes there is a quick release. But that is the last one and the next fall there is none. There are videos on u-tube where they riders falling and then getting up releasing it. and walkin away. There is yet anothere that they have used in TT isle of mann where the airbag is inside the leathere and then it fills up like a Michelin Man. tight around the shoulders and chest. I like this one better.

"...does not require removal after opening..."

So, I guess it will be very comical to watch fat Rossi and fat Lorenzo fight each other to the finish line (if they fall, of course).

I have been following the development of this for a few years now and im absolutely stoked that its going to be used by more and more riders.
Lord knows every "runner" down here in florida needs it
