This is a brilliant idea. I can't tell you how many times I've felt nauseous just looking at someone not wearing a helmet--would you leave your house naked? Would you go on an arctic expedition without a parka? Would you play baseball without a cup [sorry ladies]? Would you bake cookies without potholders? I sure as heck wouldn't get into a car without putting on a seatbelt so how could i ride a bike without a HELMET? I will ride with one or more on my bike, maybe one on my helmet, give them to my riding neighbors and friends, and give them to the poor schmucks who think riding without a helmet is cool and attractive--there's nothing attractive about a brain-damaged, drooling, spoon-fed person in a vegetative state (just ask my wife the psychologist). Thanks for listening to me and thanks for the conversation starters.
