As a daily reminder of why one has to wear a motorcycle helmet, this one’s painted with pink brains. I’m not sure who makes the one at left or if it’s just a prototype, but it’s a lot cuter than some of the bloody gutty helmet-brain combos we’ve seen around before, but this bike one at right is gross enough to keep drivers away from you and your two-wheeler. And speaking of staying safe on the road, read this interesting article from Slate about how wearing a helmet on a bicycle isn’t nearly as effective in keeping you safe from automobiles as simply being a girl. It seems drivers instinctively know to stay away from us crazy ladies on bikes. Via NotCot.
