I just received an email from a Russian friend who said: “I never cease to marvel at the Free Enterprise System. When a product reaches the point where it's almost impossible to improve its functionality, someone will still come up with a way to make people want to ditch their old one and get yours. For example, check out these motorcycle helmets.” These words were followed by the pictures shown below.
Now I’m not sure if these are real helmets or just Photoshop creations (I couldn’t find them on the Internet, but I really didn’t search long, so if you know where to find them please add a comment to let the rest of us know).
As an aside, this reminds me of a bit of fun we had a couple of years ago. This was after Hurricane Katrina when the gas prices shot up. A friend of mine – a German lady – purchased a modern version of the classic Vespa Motor Scooter.
