I am sure it still happens as I still hear the ridiculous talk going on between some riders.

The "flip over the handlebars if you use the front brake" one kills me
Have you ever tried to do a stoppie on a cruiser?

Where I work (a large store) the largest display of helmets is Shoei and Arai. Granted there is also a display of DOT approved Half-Helmets for those that prefer them or those that just can't get beyond the Image sheep phase. NO Novelty Skid lids to be found however.
