Cool idea,.....my only concern is the second hit to the 'Ole noggin. Unless it doesn't immediately deflate like an automobile airbag.

She says " cars are so yesterday - bikes are the future".

Oh yeah? Let's see you bike to CA from MA in 2.5 days ... :lol:

Looks better than those mushroom head helmets everyone wears these days. It's the law in MA ... like I had to tell anyone that one ... :roll: Realistically, there's probably 12 laws just for that!

My guess is that GE steals ideas across the pond as well.

Frankly I'd rather have the helmet than that big stupid thing wrapped around my neck.

The significant thing to me was they did not just have a good idea, they had to go out and raise the money to develop it. The market will decide if it is a good idea or not but that extra effort had to be there.

When I was a little kid I remember thinking how lucky Roy Chapman Andrews was to get to lead an expedition to the Gobi desert sponsored by the American Museum of Natural History. Later on I found out he was not lucky at all but conceived the idea and personally went to the wealthy supporters of the museum to sell the idea and raise money. He made it happen, it did not just fall into his lap.

That extra bit of initiative and talent is what socialism always lacks and political power is a poor substitute. We see the solar power boondoggle and the inevitable failure of GM as a result.

Way,way back in pre-historic times the motorcycle safety course I attended provided much"save your life" type information.This was all before the mandatory safety helmet law was enacted.The wise old instructor said "if you have a $19.00 head,get a $19.00 helmet,for those of you that would like to go on thinking for the rest of your life get a $100.00 helmet. [things were lower cost in those days,but the core concept is as true as ever] We were shown a helmet that was on a guy that dumped it and skidded on the road.The side of the helmet was chewed open but there was no blood luckily.Enough for me.

I would be dead if not for my helmet back in 1990. It was a $300+ helmet back then. I broke the chin guard off on one side and a fracture from the front above the right eye to the top center of the helmet. Still suffered a concussion a compound fracture of the right ankle and a lot of road rash, but I was alive. But a lot smarter and less immortal.
