I'm only 6' but when driving a two axle tractor pulling doubles on construction roads it wasn't unusual to get thrown up hard enough to ram my head into the ceiling.  Gave new meaning to "kinks" in your neck!  Without a seat belt it might have been serious.

I once hit a pothole or something at 30 MPH on a city street in my bus and was jarred badly.  I had my seat belt on and the air ride seat went up quite a ways.  I wasn't injured or anything.  I didn't hit my head as that part of the bus has 7 or 8 feet of headroom.

The old seats need to have just enough air pressure to keep from bottoming out on whatever roads you happen to be on. Otherwise you will be ejected!!

Not to worry --- I have contacted my insurance carrier and I am getting a million dollar liability policy on my air seat. I hope something bad happens because it will be like I won the lottery.

I did not believe a person could have so much fun for 300 dollars and an internet connection.

On bumpy roads with too much pressure folks wonder why the bus keeps jerking, they don't know you're flying with your foot off the throttle!!

 Since Im just a poor white boy from Missouri, can I just use a air mattress on my seat, for a air ride seat? Grin
