    Not really mine, the helmet or the guitar.

    I should be so lucky.

    I like my bike helmet. I like it more than that one damn branch I always bump my head on when I ride around my local trail...

    Here’s the rag with all the dried blood on it that I had to hold against the back of Jennifer’s head when she T-boned me going around the corner in the middle of May, where upon we both hit the deck at about 4 miles an hour - each hitting our head on the strip of grass between the street and the sidewalk.

    I was wearing a helmet/she was not.

    On a hard piece of lawn - not the street.

    I was fine. She had bleeding on the brain and wasn’t right for a couple months.

    That’s why you wear a helmet.

    when I see somebody out riding a bike and they’re not wearing a helme, no matter what the bike, I sneer and say “oh that’s just a dabbler/civilian. That’s not a cyclist...”

    Yeah - I laugh at bikers wearing the "skull caps" ... a ten dollar helmet for a ten dollar head .

    I was riding around on a snowmobile in Rochester and the surrounding area with one of those helmets in the 70s.

    Some cool helmets in here for sure! Mine is plain as plain can be. That's by design. I do my best to not stand out. ...mainly because I don't want people talking to me about my bike. I just want to ride in peace. lol. Yeah... I am a boatload of laughs. The bike I ride is actually a real stunner. I didn't pick it out. Wife did.

    Dad's late 1940s USN helmet along with his early 60s Bell flight helmet are in a museum. He would not tell me anything about the 40s helmet...just a white, unmarked, goofy-looking thing.

    The Bell has a retractable shield and was custom-made for him when he flew the DO-32 helicopter (1962-ish).

    Here's an old Motorcycle 1/2 helmet with reflectors on it. I have to wonder why they don't do that anymore, or is it just reflective tape now?

    A lot of newer helmets have dayglo graphic trim. The HJC I'm wearing in the second to last photo I posted had dayglo orange sections on it....however, I blacked them out as well as I could with a sharpie marker. I don't like dayglo graphics on my helmets....

    I had a silver Shoei full face at one time, and it got stolen...at a golf course of all places!!

    After that one, I got a nice Bell full face, and that one vanished too!
