I'm not buying it either, but the question then is WHY would someone fake something like this? To try and get people to wear helmets? For shits and giggles? To get their anonymous pic scuttled about the net?

Yeah, that would be pretty messy wouldn't it? Lol, I'd have to be going a lot faster than 70 to get thrown all the way into another country!

Could be any of those. Maybe I'll start a new eBay store, buying used helmets and doing this to them with the sales pitch, "I supply the helmet, you supply the shelf to display it on and the story to go with it."

Guy Who Has Never Ridden Before To Girl He Invited Over: "Yeah, I used to ride. I used to ride hard, real hard. until some cager cut me off on my Hyabusa when I was up to about 170. This is the helmet I was wearing when it happened. I'm lucky to be alive, but not as lucky as I was the minute I first saw you."

haha! Damn, that's almost as good as putting armor all on the pilon seat and stopping too fast.
