New helmet

June 3, 2012

My old bike helmet is 6 – 7 years old and they are pretty much useless after 2 – 3 years. UV rays and other exotic demons render them non-resilient and they do little after 2 – 3 years to protect your noggin. Consequently, my granddaughter and I went shopping for a new one. I was tempted to buy the below one but was afraid if I did the “powers-to-be” would usher me off to “the home” so I settled for a vanilla flavored one.
