Short blurb accompanying this photo stated a friend on a motorcycle had a 70-mph accident involving a bus.
That's what I was thinking too, a spare helmet locked onto the helmet lock (I destroyed my son's helmet doing that once, my bad . Then the weight of the bike would be bearing down on one spot of the helmet. And depending where the lock was and how long the straps are...have to agree. twenty some odd years ago i went down on the highway at about 70mph and while i did have some nice flat spots on the helmet, it was nothing close to that bad. maybe if the helmet was locked to the side of the bike or something........... but even then ??
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."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?
haha! Damn, that's almost as good as putting armor all on the pilon seat and stopping too fast. :doublethumb:Could be any of those.

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."
