New Helmet

About two months ago I dropped my motorcycle helmet onto hard asphalt from about 7 feet. If you know anything about motorcycle helmets you know that I basically destroyed the helmet. Everything looks fine, but the nice foam inside which protects your head is one time use only, and a drop from that height used it.

Today my wife bought me a new helmet. The Shoei RF1000 in solid white. This is quite a step up from my old icon helmet, and I look forward to wearing the new one.

Sadly they didn't have white in stock, so I have to wait a week while they ship it. So close!
