Re: The Dumbest Thing I've Ever Seen...

I'm sure some will disagree but yeah, pretty dumb. Especially since he thinks it's a substitute for a helmet.

Re: The Dumbest Thing I've Ever Seen...

The "inventor" sez:

"I now sport a skateboard style motorcycle skid lid without having to wear sunglasses or goggles."


I wonder what a "skateboard style motorcycle skid lid" is.

I've never seen a more blatant ripoff of an already existing design. This guy is not only hallucinating, he's just ASKING for a patent infringement lawsuit from BMW if he ever actually brings it to market.

Thumbs down Re: The Dumbest Thing I've Ever Seen...

Thanks, but no thanks...

Picked a bad day to stop sniffing glue I guess....

Oh well, to each his/her own I suppose...

Sad part is, some one is going to hand over cash money for that thing...

Go Figure!

Isn't it like the salad bowls the H-D guys wear, except the straps aren't quite so "cute?"

....and I've learned that my high bling Arai helmet is nothing more than a windscreen! I knew I was ripped off!!

Re: The Dumbest Thing I've Ever Seen...

Uh, o-kay.

From this inventor's shallow wading pool of wisdom:

With my Rocketshields canopy, I no longer have to wear a full face helmet that squishes my fat cheeks, fogs up when its too cold or too hot, impairs my peripheral vision and hearing, and makes my head smell like a sweaty sock.

And when you end up making an unplanned disembarkment without a decent helmet....? How does a bloody sock sound, chief?!?


(This site is a joke, right?)
