Question Question about Mohawks

I'm 48. If I was ever cool and "with it" I've lost it.

I see the odd (And I do mean ODD!) rider with a Mohawk atop the helmet (props to 'em for WEARING a helmet!).

Why Mohawks?

if you want to be seen riding in a clown outfit or assless chaps works better than a bit of fuzz on top of your helmet.
