Just saw a Volvo commercial for their S80. The car apparently has advanced accident avoidance features--including some radar thing in the blind spot. if you are going to change lanes into a car/bike, the volvo chimes a warning.

anyway, the commercial narrator says something like john is about to crash with this motorcycle and then they show a rider point of view shot with our beloved instrument dash/fairing/mirrors. then the narrator talks about the crash avoidance, and john hears an alarm and avoids hitting the bike. then a black F41000 passes him up with a rider and a co-pilot.

thanks for not hitting us john! :f4: and thanks for the airtime vovlo! :guitarist

After "Learn More", click on BLIS, then view commercial. BLIS is right next to the CWBS option ... you were close!

I heard they called Pro Italia looking for black Ducati's but they were unavailable. PI supplied the 3 black MV's instead.

Gotta say I was thrilled when I recognized the instrument cluster!

These commercials tick me off (even more the one Volvo has where the couple is late, and the guys ripping through traffic at night, and then when the warning goes off, he swerves into the other lane w/o looking :mad: ), there people should be paying attention, not relying on technology to save them. Technology will ALWAYS fail.

Yes, but by providig it, people will begin to rely on it, rather than pay attention, and eventually all units will fail, and statistically, some will fail often.

:2up: What I think would be better would be mass beatings. In my time I have learned that people learn so much more when you hit it them. Don't belivie me walk up to one of your coworkers and just rail him. As he goes to get up the first thing well "what" or "why". Next time someone cuts you off beat them. I think if it coaught people would be better drivers. :naughty: I wanted to hit the last two cars that hit me but one was a girl, rather cute.... and I couldn't walk at that time. The other was a really old guy who started to cry. But I am sure both of them would of listened.
