just a sudden thought. what if bike lots in shopping centers came with their own helmet lockers?
don't think it would cost that much to implement. i know for bikes with boxes, helmet storage is not an issue. but for those without, i feel having a dedicated locker for each bike parking lot (to fit 1 or 2 helmets + whatever barang) would motivate more bikers to visit that particular shopping center.
think about being able to have both hands free to try on clothes, carry more stuff, go into food-courts or cinemas without worrying about where to put your prized helmet, etc. for those who frequently pillion their girlfriends, she will confirm plus chop be happy for not having to lug around her own helmet.
then at the end of the day, go back to the locker, maybe scan your IC/input your secret PIN/scan your eye (okay probably not), grab your helmet(s) and leave happy.
feel free to support/shoot my idea down.
