Only Posers wear helmets on dirt bikes.

When I was about 12 did a forward front flip. Thighs hit front handle bar of my minibike that I had all pumped up and slowly burning the motor up. Lost some skin on that one. I also did not wear a helmet and in fact didn't have one lol! Awesomeness! :D

Oh the learning curve! Ooouuch! :eek:

Hey! Watch this! :eek:

When I was 16 my mother's 1957 XLCH Sporster threw me over the windshield and onto the garage cement slab while trying to start it (she couldn't start it..got me..I asked her if she retarded the spark..instead of checking myself..gave her a couple of kicks..hit the ignition..kicked her..she kicked back and away I went)...otherwise haven't been over any windshields or handlebars since...

:cheers:

Guess I must've been one of the first....

Back in '63 on the way to Eureka, CA from Edmonton, AB, wearing a Brit "helmet", I stopped in Seattle and got one of the NEW Bell 500TX helmets, then gave the Brit one to my buddy who was riding pillion.

:cool:
