I HAVE A TIPPERARY!! It was a long long battle for looks versus comfort and comfort eventually won out. If there's a breeze, I actually feel it run through my hair. It's a crazy but amazing feeling. :) I actually dread putting my once beloved GPA on at shows. It's THAT great. Plus, there was a grand prix rider at the last show I was at that showed in a Tipperary! The kids at the barn started off calling it my "space alien helmet" (it's got a space age look to it) but one by one they've started buying them..... Congrats on your new helmet!
