I managed to get it on to the side on the road, full of tall grass, and did not go down. My friend came back a moment later when he realized that I was no longer behind him and said, I was going to give you a hard time for wearing that helmet, but I guess I won't.
I am still looking for an upgrade to my bike helmet, but haven't yet found anything that doesn't make me feel like "Dark Helmet" from "Space Balls." Any suggestions?
I have an AFX black full face and a Fieldsheer armored jacket, both from motorcycle-superstore.com. Very comfortable. Yes, wearing a full face takes a little getting used to, but it's worth it.
