Skull Helmet


"This badass looking helmet will scare the crap out of any onlooker while you're enjoying your mid-day cruise. Not only is it lightweight, but it's very comfortable inside, and has a lot of breathing space."

Heavy irony putting this thing on the same page with the Ghost Bikes.

At least it is for me. Y'see, when I saw thosed memorial bikes, I was thinking about how it would be nice if I could chain a white BMW motorcycle to the pole where my friend crashed. His helmet was crushed. His bike went to pieces.

But the previous 2 times when he got in accidents, having a real helmet saved him. One time, when I went to get him out of the emergency hospital, he couldn't get his short term memory going for quite a while, so we had to wait until his mind got its traction -- but the helmet had kept his skull protected.

To me, riding a motorcycle is a death sentence with no particular execution time specified -- just a "surprise" ending. Well, not a surprise, exactly. Just a matter of when.

But, guys, if you're going to ride a two-wheel vehicle, put your fragile body in some kind of protective gear. Wear heavy duty boots. Wear clothing that can protect you from "road rash" if you get bumped into by an oblivious 4 wheel driver. And put your skull in a REAL HELMET.

I've seen these...they won't do a damn thing to protect your head in an accident. Well, you might look prettier in your casket.
