Default Two new helmets in one month.

I was out for a ride today sporting my old trusty half helmet and stopped for lunch. When I pulled it off my noggin the shell practically came off the foam! Yeah... time for a new lid. So I picked up the Bell "Steel & Street" B-17 half helmet. Kind of a subtle WW2 German helmet look to it but not flared out as much. So far it rides really nice. No choking parachute issues.

The other helmet was a planned decision earlier this month. My full face had seen too many miles and I knew it. I replaced it with a Scorpion Exo-1000. It's a heavy helmet but it doesn't really feel like it. It's very well ventilated. Runs pretty quiet wind wise. It has a flip down sun visor which works splendidly but could stand to be a bit darker. A unique feature it has is inflatable cheek pads ala 80's reebok shoes. Seems kind of silly but it is actually kind of nice on the freeway.

Guess my head is safe for now.
