Default Re: What scares me the most...

One thing to remember is that a helmet only works once. It absorbs impact energy by suffering it's own structural degradation. When I race and have a crash hard enough to have needed a helmet to survive it, I cut the helmet up and bin it. People at work have not understood and called me mad for doing it to an apparently sound helmet, but I work on the principle that it's my head inside it and I'm not taking chances.
