Default Rainy day thinking..

I went for a ride today and it was raining quite heavy' So much so that i couldn't see out of my full face shield, So when i got home i started thinking [I really got to stop that] Anyway i digress... I noticed while riding there is a back pressure on the helmet, So i brought the helmet into my shop and did a little reengineering . I reversed the air vents; i.e. Put the rear vents in the front and the front vents in the rear. Then i went for another ride... I Immediately noticed the rain blew off and my helmet felt lighter, The reversed air flow decreased the back pressure and it was reduced by a factor of 2.533. My gas mileage increased and also had more power, cooler running engine, Also i was able to switch to 87 octane instead of 91... And when i pulled up to my local watering hole and removed my helmet. No more helmet hair.. My hair looked liked i just had it styled. So much so that the young ladies at the bar couldn't resist running their fingers though my hair.... Sometimes it doe's pays to think out side the box.....

Disclamer;;;;; Your results may vary.. Also check that this won't void your warrantee...
