Well, I broke the piggy bank and bought a modular helmet (Shoei Multitec) this past week so on Saturday I had to try it out and rode up to New Hampshire to buy some Bourbon and Wine. It was in the mid 40's so I dress for it and it was a great ride. I saw a total of 8 other bikes (5 Harley's and 3 Goldwing's) in 100 miles so I knew I wasn't the only die-hard out for possibly the last ride of the season. As for the helmet, it is fantastic. I felt like a kid with a new toy.
