From what I heard is that:

1. Its track purposed to soak up the fluid do to heating up of the breaks which causes it to expand and potentially leak out.
2. Picked up by street riders for fashion.
3. Stunt riders use them for heating of the front breaks from stoppies (nose wheelies) and from the front end dropping down hard possibly causing the lid to "loosen".

This is what I always thought as well. The plastic will end up to where you basically can't see though it and will have a chalky feel to it. Look at this guys reservoir then look at a new one.

i use it for wiping the sweat off of my forehead during a track day. Usually into the fifth lap I start sweating so I take it off in between turns and open my visor and start to dab away, then while in the next turn I put it back on and close my visor. Oh and also while I'm doing that I throw the shocker (you know, two in the pink and one in the stink) up in the air. But that's just because I'm super awesome.
