Looked for the commercial on YouTube but didn't see it. Basically the start of the comercial is a motorcycle (didn't notice what) crashing through a Bus Stop Glass enclosure, next was a Honda bouncing off it's front, next bike sliding off the road into a pile of rocks, next a Harley high siding... you get the gist.... No-one was in the crashes of the bikes

Tag line at the end of the commercial: "Motorcycles don't crash by them-selves... We don't just insure your bike we insure you as well."

So it was odd to see bikes going through some horrible stuff just to make a point. Well all of them but maybe the Honda. :ha
