a skull half kevlar!
not often does it happen that parents or loved ones prohibit their loved ones from riding a bike. The reason is not far from normal....its the constant fear of their kin getting hurt,injured or god forbid KILLED!
But one fails to forget that the world will be filled with people in anti-bacterial,radiation suits if would see the invisible danger around us!
Getting back to riding... a person who is born to rule the roads will do so regardless of obstacles such as parents or spouse or girlfriend(s) coming in their way... riders have always been outlaws...they have always defied limits. But even the bravest of warriors have had enough muscle inside their heads to wear some armor!
Probably the best move i made in my riding career so far(apart from choosing the career itself) was to go for a rated helmet. Even knights fall from horses...and to tell you honestly horses do have better sense as compared to a brainless bike!
You are heading for trouble if u don't wear the very piece of equipment that is designed to save you incase you fall! Even though i have been driving in a very precise manner...At times i have fallen and fallen bad! but never have i suffered as much as a scratch on my head. thanks to my helmet.
Btw i wear a SHARK S650 live graphics. A wonderful piece of equipment that really fits well and ventilation inside is plenty. Yes motoGP standard does not come cheap but is definitely is a small price to pay for ones life!
We pay so much to get silly stickers, multi-tone horns, neon lights , led's and what not rubbish on our bikes ...BUT STOP FOR A MINUTE AND ASK YOURSELF, WILL ANY OF IT SAVE ME IF I FALL?
Go and buy a decent helmet before you ride!
