As you know I was in a bit of a riding accident two weeks ago. I'm fine, other than I *still* have a bruise on my butt, but it really made it clear to me why riding helmets are such a good idea. Granted, it's hard to look particulary attractive in one, but... c'est la vie, as they say. I have to send my helmet back for replacement, so I took some pics today before packaging it up.
It's the back left side that got dented, so for comparison sake here's the normal side, nice and smooth:
And here's the dent. It's much more impressive in person.
These things are not easy to dent. That would really suck if that was my head.
