On a side note, it turns out the Read Replica was the best-looking helmet ever made, as proven in a world-wide poll of me:

*Admittedly I AM crazy, but not because I thought you could get a nice Arai with graphics for ~$500.

Can we talk about the fact that you have a helmet receipt from 20 years ago?

Haha yeah!  So many fractions gone.  Does the soul grow back, like the liver?

No, but as the husband of a redhead I can vouch there are other ways.

I think the Universe is trying to tell me two things:

2) You need a mesh jacket.

Yeah, I can find a twenty year old receipt no problem but half the time I can't find my shoes.

Getting old sucks.
