Nice one. Almost as funny as when I saw someone with their Onza L-Bend bar-ends on the wrong sides (pointing outwards)!! Plus, they were on a DH riser bar!!!

Some of the most enjoyable moments are the helmets on backwards people.
Even saw a Woman with a helmet that had a visor and still she put it on wrong. I very very politley had a word and she said "No wonder it was so bloody dificult to get on".
