Non-DOT Approved Motorcycle Helmets
Yes, this is a real photo. Taken by associate editor Landon Hall in a vendor’s booth at Blues, Bikes and BBQ in Fayetteville, Ark., in 2008, it clearly shows non-DOT approved motorcycle helmets for sale. And, for only $2 more, you can also add an “official” DOT sticker to save you from being bothered by the local police.
Nothing says safety like a German military-style helmet, after all, especially one that’s finished in chrome and spikes. And with the addition of a sticker, it’s bound to save your noggin, right?
