Future Meets the Past Here In the Present – A Wild Helmet Story

55 to 75 Million Year Old Concretion

He Was Here – We Know It Because He Left His Helmet!

Rumors have it that Kawasaki kept pushing the envelope in performance and then in 2035, the H222 finally exceeded Warp. The daring rider who was willing to test anything with an Electron Dynamo Fusion Engine was given the nickname “Warp” and sadly never seen or heard from again. In a twist of fate, the rider was thrust back in time – 75 Million Years Back!

We’ve long known that Kawasaki has built some of the fastest machines in our motorcycling history. We also know that just when another manufacturer gets something close, Kawasaki comes out with a machine that blows the competition away. So too was the case 20 years in the future when the rider we now know as “Warp” tested their newest H222. Well, Geological research has recently unearthed Warp’s helmet. We know it’s his because the rumors hold that he loved and wore only the Vintage Bell helmets of the 1970’s.

Ok, so I may have taken some liberties with this rumor……but what is true is that what you’re looking at is 55 ~75 Million years old. We found these in a cliff wall while out on an off-road ride. Thinking they were Eggs, I quickly took photos and sent those to Auburn and Georgia Universities. After some email exchanges, Georgia’s Professor of Geology confirmed that these were CONCRETIONS, not Eggs. The Professor added that these were from the Cretaceous or Paleogene Ages – 55 Million to 75 Million years ago.

Wikipedia Defines Concretions as a hard, compact mass of matter formed by the precipitation of mineral cement within the spaces between particles, and is found in sedimentary rock or soil. Concretions are often ovoid or spherical in shape, although irregular shapes also occur. The word ‘concretion’ is derived from the Latin con meaning ‘together’ and crescere meaning ‘to grow’. Concretions form within layers of sedimentary strata that have already been deposited. They usually form early in the burial history of the sediment, before the rest of the sediment is hardened into rock. This concretionary cement often makes the concretion harder and more resistant to weathering than the host stratum.
