Got some gear
July 30, 2009 at 9:05 pm #3220
I ordered my first jacket and helmet online. An AFX FX-90 Skull Helmet and a Yoshimura AF-C Mesh Cordura Jacket. When I received the package, I was so exited. When I opened the box, it was like those movies where the treasure chest opens and light comes out of the box with a chorus somewhere voicing that high A note “AAAAAAAAAHH”…..(maybe, that is too dramatic), but fun nonetheless. I ordered both small sizes since I’m a slim 5’10”. They both fit great. The helmet is a tad tight, but I guess when I start using it often, it will mold. Well, the only thing that I need before I go riding is…… well, a bike. But, I know I’ll have mine soon.

Hey, I love the helmet and jacket! Nice color choice too. Now, what bike you gettin’????August 1, 2009 at 3:44 am #21119owlieParticipant
My helmet was a bit snug too. I had tried on one size larger, and it was also a firm fit, but I was concerned it would end up too loose once I had worn it. After the BRC, I knew that I had the right size.August 1, 2009 at 3:54 pm #21130
Thanks for the comment. On the bike, I really don’t know. To be honest, I really like sports bikes, but around here, getting a used cruiser is easier and cheaper. Not that I don’t like cruisers, but I would prefer a “plastic bike”, like it is said around here. BTW, nice bike on your photo. What model is it?August 1, 2009 at 3:59 pm #21131
I kind of took a risk, since I have read that you should buy your first helmet on a local store or something, so you can test your fit and whatnot. I bought mine on the internet and my head size was between sizes. When I put it on, I said to my self: “Oh, crap. Its too tight!” But once I got in, it was good.
So, owlie, its august. Have you gotten your results yet?
