I've decided to stick with the pcx150 and not press my luck with something bigger and faster. But like I said before, it only takes one moment of weakness to do something foolish. Never underestimate the power of a slick commissioned salesman.
The new helmet arrived and it's a big thick clunky thing. When I first put it on I thought; son of bitch, this thing's too tight.
