Well, I missed the Easyriders V-Twin Expo yet again… I have been hoping to attend this event for a long time now and there just seems like something always gets in my way.  This year’s event was as fantastic as ever, especially if you take into consideration the economy as well as half the country experiencing travel-debilitating weather ps4 spiele kostenlos downloaden kinder.

Friends in attendance say that they had a great time, and enjoyed all the vendors.  All the usual suspects were there and the magazine staffs from all your favorite publications were on hand to promote themselves and to cover the event.  The Limpnickie Lot Crew showed up with the much-anticipated second version of the Builder’s Manual, which has a ton of badass parts for the hip builder.  I look forward to getting my mitts on a copy.  And a ton of other amazing parts were at various booths around the center.  There was a little bit of everything to cover just about any need in the motorcycle industry herunterladen.

All in all, a successful run this year.  I also hear that the Biltwell party in itself was worth the trip.  So put it on the calendar for next year.  Maybe I can finally get all the stars to align and get myself there.  Hope to see you Download m3u8 file.

Today is the perfect day amazon music unlimited alben herunterladen.  The temperature is in the mid 80’s, the humidity is low, the sun is shining, and the pollution level is mild enough you don’t choke as soon as you leave the house herunterladen.  I have spent the day tooling around town looking for a new helmet.  You see, helmets have been a major topic of discussion around the homestead as of late spotify für macbook herunterladen. My Ol’ Lady has become less than happy with my novelty skidlid.  So she has been trying to convince me to move to a DOT model.  In her words, she and the kids like my noggin’ the way it is adobe flash for free.

I suppose I am a bit of a hypocrite when it comes to helmets.  I want a tiny lid or nothing at all; I want my wife in a good DOT number, and I want my girls in the best full-faced jobs money can buy block craft for free.  Perhaps that is how most of us are.  I value the lives of the ones I love more than my own… I also feel I have some control in a world that is hell bent on proving that no one has control spyder.  Foolish? Yes.  But that is the way it is sometimes.

If I am going to consider this, I have a decision to make dumb ways to die kostenlos herunterladen.  Half Helmet? Three Quarter Job? Full Faced?  Each has its own qualities.  I personally prefer the look and feel of a half helmet, so this is what I am gunning for foto viewer windows 7en. I have found that the carbon fiber models seem to be the smallest and lightest. Three quarter helmets have come back into vogue lately and my lovely wife looks as cute as can be in her Biltwell, even if it is not a DOT approved model Download after effects for free. Fulmer and Davida make ¾ models that have the low profile, kool old school look and they are both DOT approved.  Be careful of the Davida though, I thought the monthly note on a new bike was high, the cost of this thing is pretty outrageous Download roblox android for free.  Lastly is the full-faced model.  I have a few Bros who swear by these and they are the only helmets they will don.  Besides offering exceptional protection in the event of a high-speed get off, they also offer ID protection if the situation ever calls for it.  I have found that HJC has a youth line of full-faced lids that I will be getting for my girls.  Full coverage protection and they come in pink… what little girl doesn’t like pink?

So, after a few years of unhappy looks as I ride off in my old brain bucket, I have finally decided to buy a new lid. I would be lying if I didn’t say that I considered slapping a DOT sticker on my existing pudding bowl, but that could end up badly.  If you happen to be caught by Johnny Law with a sticker on a novelty helmet you could be looking at a very large fine, and in some states, they will impound your bike right on the spot!  Hitching a ride home with a novelty helmet in my hand sounds like a drag to me, so I decided to avoid that all together.

I ended up at the local, independently owned biker shop and took a peek at what they had.  The helmet that fit me best was a HCI Naked Front (no lip or visor to catch the wind).  The sizes run a bit large, and I may have been able to squeeze my skull into a medium, but after the ride home I figure this one was going to do the trick.  And at under $50, who could complain.  Besides, riding off with a kiss and a smile from the Ol’ Lady is worth much more.  You have to pick your battles and, this time, she was right.
