    I really hate landing on my head, but sometimes it's unavoidable.
    I ride with the helmet most of the time (exception being when I'm doing trail work) . . . Heidi's experience on the ortho/neuro floor at EMMC and my own experience on the ambulance has convinced me that I really don't want to end up with brain trauma so I too choose to play it safe . . . plus you can get whacked in the head with branches and it doesn't sting.

    HehHeh . . . enjoyed your verbal sparring with the "quotes" guys . . . made me laugh and laugh again.

    I also like your new signature Aaron.

    I figured for what it was worth, and the pain it would be to coordinate together to get yours off and put on, that it would be easier on all of us if I just got a new one. Once I saw how much it was, I just couldn't pass it up.

    I just bought a helmet today, dave(76) wanted to get the bright neon pink one with glow in the dark flowers and dave(ff) wanted to get the one with the flashing lights and the red night rider lights...

    I'm guessing you didn't get it at Brown's in Benton . . . seriously, the next time you're down that way you should make a point to stop in . . . he's got a lot of stuff at good prices for ATVers and sledders (the exact same stuff the business on Target Industrial Circle carries . . . but typically at a much better price.)

    no, we didn't get down that way, Dave had to get home before connie got really mad...

    but afterwards we went to bangor motorsports and wandered a bit, and I felt like I got a really really good deal after seeing their prices.

    You'll almost always pay more at a dealer for those sorts of things . . . but I will say that I've always liked BMS . . . top-notch folks for servicing my Honda ATV and they've always been very supportive of the Troy ATV Club's Poker Run by donating some nice prizes over the past few years.
