the ones MGP riders wear are inside the jacket, and when they inflate it makes the rider look like the hulk.

When they start selling them I'll buy. I'm sitting here on light duty at work cause of my seperated shoulder. from a highside of less than 20 mph. And I don't plan on quitting riding.

I like that a lot better than the external clam shell airbags I've seen before. I agree with Reese, I will buy them if they make them. That little bit of deceleration distance can make a world of difference between walking away in disgust and riding away in an ambulance. My not so humble opinion.

I've only seen the external type. Did you see the MotoGP style for sale anywhere (link)? I will search later, but if you already have the location it would be nice (I really don't need a LMGTFY link, thanks).
