Be careful of wearing a motorcycle helmet on a bicycle - some of those helmets are designed for a less crouched over position than what most cyclists have, so when you ride a bicycle with them, the back can press uncomfortably against your neck. A friend of mine actually passed out while riding her bicycle with a motorcycle helmet. She ascribed this to the pressure-on-neck issue, but it could be that she was just overheated. Anyway, keep this in mind.
