Three aspects of motorcycle safety were further investigated, one exploring rider protection in side impacts and the other two relating to accident avoidance. The side impact study contains data and evaluation of eight instrumented crash tests of an automobile into a motorcycle with dummy rider. The other two studies were of tests for service life of control cables and for improving headlamp illumination.
