Hmmm, don’t think I will be one of the first to give it a try.

I wonder about the amount of company liability insurance they would have to carry to bring that to market.

cool stuff by those crazy germans
Wheaton,

I believe that gadget is a one-shot, with very expensive refills. I am guessing that once you set it off, you are supposed to realize that you are riding 'way over your head, and then ride safer until you can get it refilled.

Still, I would not bet my life that it will work as advertised, even once.

NOS = N2O, NOS is a brand of N2O injection systems, and a drank preferred by mullet having rednecks from South Carolina.

I'm no mechanical engineer, but I'm guessing an engine could drive a compressor which could theoretically refill that Bosch jet.

I'm hoping I'm long dead before the future communist leaders of this country mandate this device for comrade motorcyclists on their way to the communal farm.

Nah, but a beta version would sure be fun to observe! I hope I do not need them someday.

Would be useful around here where folks like to hit the gas upon leaving the main road onto their gravel driveway.

Ah, you have hit on my pet peeve. The other kids gave the LIFE cereal to try because "he hates everything", so when he LIKES the cereal, then they figured it must be GOOD. {at least that's the way I remember it}
