Its that new helmet smell...


This weekend, on a misson to Aberdeen to find female TNC connectors, I got frustrated at the lack of success and ended up at Hein Gerike - motorbike stuff for the masses. A very patient chap measured my head, and put up with my unrealistic expectations to find a motorcycle helmet to fit my huge head (XXL, dontchaknow!), under £100, trendy, and of course quiet, removable liners, spacelight, etc. Once I'd upped my price range, I found a fairly nice Nolan helmet - I've never had one of those before. Lets see how it works out over the summer. It even has space for the Autocom in-helmet speakers and mike (intercom, iPod, phone, etc)


(The reference to the new helmet smell is a reference to my previous helmet - a fantastic Shoei - which after 8 years of being sweated in, smells like something died in there..)
