Great information Michelle! Thanks for posting this.

Listen where thou art sitting
under the glassie, cool, translucent wave,
in twisted braids of lillies knitting
the loose train of thy amber-dropping hair.

For those that remember me crying like a big whiny cry-baby poo-poo pants the first two days of our AMA Women's Conference trip to Nevada. Brand new helmet break-in time sucks, but well worth the initial discomfort. A few days of sweat and tears, and the damn thing feels like I was born with it on. If your cheeks aren't schmooshed a bit, then it's a safe bet your lid is too loose. Get it right, get it tight ladies! :happy-cheerleaderkid:
Humanity is a terrible thing to waste. Be patient, treat others with respect, and ride like you borrowed it indefinitely!
