There is a growing penchant among motorcyclists, especially females, for hugging each other.
Sometimes this will happen after a ride, when they are all still wearing helmets.
The result can be a clashing of helmets (people tend to forget that they are wearing them).
Aside from slight embarrassment, this has the effect of potentially damaging their life saving equipment.
Today’s invention is therefore a gel pad with an adhesive backing which can be attached to one’s helmet in the collision-prone zone.
In the event of a carpark hug, no damage will be done.
The pads could even have a large set of lips marked on them. Over time, the wearing off of this symbol could become a treasured sign of one’s popularity.
This idea could be extended to American football, where helmet butting is a sign of congratulation/affiliation.
