The helmet and protection will mess up the hair and clothes, as will
the wind and the elements. Street smog, splashes from puddles,
sweating in the heat, breathing car exhaust, all will make people
avoid this as a means of transportation. I think this will be
limited to recreational use only, and will not be a common utility
