Allstate INS New Motor Cycle Commercial

I don't know about all of you but I'm outraged over the new commercial for motorcycle insurance that Allstate is currently running. For those that haven't seen it the youtube link is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_o1cwbd4po

The commercial is titled "Motorcycles never crash alone".. Am I alone on this?

I've seen it. Maybe I'm insensitive, but what's the problem with it?

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Good point. But my understanding was they were trying to emphasize that bikes have riders that crash too (which aren't pictured in the ads) so you needed their insurance to cover rider repair costs (medical). But then I don't pay much attention to any ads so I may be off base.

Protects your bike and protects you? Looking at those crashes you probably would already be dead. Boy, their coverage must be that good if it could protect you from that. lol
Probably was a cager that came up with the idea.

Who was it (Paul Harvey ??) that showed the good hands opened up at the bottom on their TV show, I can't remember but I feel the same about Allstate and also Farm Bureau (sp) gave me a kick in the lower parts once, and I have never forgave them...

Many bikes died creating that commercial. A moment of silence please....

Now... seems to me they're selling life insurance, not bike insurance. I agree with Shark88 - you'd be dead.

I was not offended by it, but whatever its message is, I missed it.
