Protect your head with one of these feature-rich helmets
I was young, screaming around the trails by my house on my Yamaha Banshee. I was sporting some sweet gear and the crown jewel was my Bell Helmets Moto 4 Ricky Johnson signature helmet ó the coolest helmet ever (yes, Iím that old). I was riding along a trail that was converted rail line, so the ground was crushed rock. I didnít see the washout until it was too late.
The accident was pretty bad. I had been pulled under the machine in the air and it landed on me, slamming me both into the ground and crushing me under the machine. I was bloodied, mangled and with parts of me that werenít where they we supposed to be ó BUT ó I was alive. The helmet had done what it was supposed to do and took the brunt of the impacts to my head. My sweet skid lid was toast, but I lived to buy a new one.
