Helmet Hair (Old news from last week)

Just another day - no bells or whistles. It's still February and there's still lots of snow. I keep looking out the window hoping to see that, like a bad dream, the mountainous snowbanks have vanished overnight. They haven't. What's worse, there's another ten to 15 centimeters to come. More freakingly cold snow - just what we need! Yeah Canada!

So, when you're snowed in and thinking of two wheels and the open road what can you do? Well, you can get a new hair cut of course. This is a motorcycle blog so follow me here. Hair - helmet ... helmet - hair.  February is the perfect month to helmexperiement. I can't ride the bike but I can wear the helmet so that makes February the perfect month to test the hairdo for 'helmetability." This is, after all, a motorcycle blog from a feminine perspective. I'll be wearing the helmet around the house this week (Thankfully no body's watching) - I'll let you know how the helmet hair tests go.

More importantly - it's not the hair, it's what's under it. Wearing a helmet is all about protecting your most important feature - your head. Are you wearing a helmet?


  1. Believe it or not, my home state, Oregon, is full blown in a debate about passing a NEW law to allow people over the age of 21 to go without a helmet! Read one of my favorite bloggers story here.. If they pass this law, Im still wearing my helmet and so will my family...or else!! Mommy/Grammy says!! No law trumps that.

  2. I'm with you - what is there to debate? WEAR A HELMET!
    Thanks for the link and my response to comment #1 is - Rider Training, absolutely! And what's the first thing they teach you in rider training? WEAR A HELMET!

  3. No less than a 3/4 helmet all the time for me! No compromise no matter what temperatures I am riding in.

  4. Absolutely - a rider's most valuable piece of equipment is what's under the helmet - in all conditions.
