Seatbelts and Riders.

Is it not kind of funny why people who have ridden or ride Motorcycles Still bucle up in a car(i know its the law but just pretending you dont have to)
knowing you have gone just as fast if not faster on a bike without any restraint system.but aHelmet

I found myself questioning the reason why I BUCKLE UP . I said to myself, (Man I ride a sportsbike) why am i puting on this seat belt in my truck?

it was an odd feeling

APART FROM THE OBVIOUS. THAT TOO APPLIES ON A BIKE.

THATS NOT MY POINT. POINT IS YOUR SAFER IN A CAR EVEN WITHOUT A SEATBELT but you have them. AND RIDERS DONT WEAR THEM ON BIKES. CAUSE THEY DONT MAKE THEM. BELIEVE ME I GET THE WHY. IT JUST MADE ME THINK.

1st law

. Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it.

wearing a seatbelt
A crash which stops the car and driver must take away all its kinetic energy, and the work-energy principle then dictates that a longer stopping distance decreases the impact force. For the example car crash scenario the stopping distance is one foot, the force on a 160 lb driver is about 4800 lb or 2.4 tons, and the deceleration about 30 g's. A moderate amount of stretch in the seatbelts will reduce the average impact force.

no seatbelt
With no seatbelt to stop the driver with the car, the driver flies free until stopped suddenly by impact on the steering column, windshield, etc. The stopping distance is estimated to be about one fifth of that with a seatbelt, causing the average impact force to be about five times as great. The work done to stop the driver is equal to the average impact force on the driver times the distance traveled in stopping. A crash which stops the car and driver must take away all its kinetic energy, and the work-energy principle then dictates that a shorter stopping distance increases the impact force

work energy principle W (net) = 1/2mv(2f)-1/2mv(2initial)

I lean a bike.
In a car, it leans me so I wear a belt.


I hate getting thrown in the passenger seat while trying to lean in the truck!

seriously dude, you must be a few french fries short of a happy meal.

typically in a motor vehicle accident you are ejected from your motor vehicle. With a bike you are normally thrown free, with a car, you do not have a clear escape path.

I had a member of the family get into a car wreck w/o a seatbelt. A 240 lb guy was thrown through the sunroof. While it was closed. Chew on that for a while, and I hope you chose to buckle up. And not go 198 in an sti on public streets

I was thinking the same thing.

Just how a helmet has been proven statistically to reduce fatal injuries, same thing with a seat belt.

I don't think you're getting a NEW M5 for 75K, but if you do let me know. I'm moving my 528I later this year but was looking at the new 335 twin turbo. and I would wear the seatbelt cuz I've seen too many people half in half out dead, dead on the inside, dead in a tree 100 yards down the road.....

If I had the cash it's the new M6. WOW.
