New Helmet

I re-learned something about helmets today. If you try it on in the store, make sure you wear it long enough to see if there are any hidden pressure spots. I failed to do so, and my new helmet has a really bad pressure spot right on the top of my forehead.

I emailed Shoei, and they said it would 20-25 hours of use to break in. I am hoping that it will break in, otherwise I have wasted a nice chunk of change, on a helmet I will not be able to wear. I also have the irrational fear that it will reshape my fine skull. :)
