It looks like it could potentially snag another riders bike on the track.

MotoGP riders use this and this is actually named after a kid who died because a rider "braked" hard into a turn and his front brake went into the riders elbow and caused him to slam the front brakes an go over front end, I personally think it's a good buy

It's a proven safety device that more and more racing organizations are approving for use. Even I've been eyeing one for my next trackday...looks like it can be transferred between bikes (GSXR's need a separate kill switch and throttle housing in some cases).

I like the "Dion Device model, myself.

I'm going to be getting me one, I personally haven't been to the track "yet" but I'm in a riding club and when we go to canyons there's over 80 of us. Some new I've never been with so when I pass a newbie I will feel more comfortable doing so, I've had something like this get close before, good thing I have galfer lines n pads

Looks cool and functional. Eric makes some nice stuff and he is local. A nice feature to have on a track bike.

Those dion's or whatever look slick as fuck, but like dude was asking ^, I wonder if they'd damage any of the handle bar components if they snap off in a crash.

I'd assume they wouldn't because MotoGP riders use it so I'd say they don't have time for somethin that is faulty
