Thumbs up My new helmet!

Ok, so I haven't even started lessons, or for that matter confirmed where I will be taking lessons. But I have my helmet! I'm so excited! Apperently I have an oval head, which never posed an issue when it came to bike helmets. But now that I need one for riding, and the oval ones cost way more, naturally my head is oval.
So anyhow, it's so pretty, and wasn't crazy exspensive and I love it!

I got mine at a local tack shop. You can buy offline if you don't have one near you. Or you can get one off Ebay like MIEventer did.

Edit: I just checked ebay, and the prices are crazy! I bought mine for under $70 CAN. On ebay the cheapest is way more plus shipping!

Yay! I have a Tipperary to school in and I LOVE it! It's cool and very comfortable... but my friend and i call them our "space alien helmets" because, well... that's kind of what they look like. :)

I'm also a happy tipperary user!! I love mine... it's light, protects the back of your neck, and looks pretty cool too. Congratulations on your new helmet!

Nice I hope you like it and get lots of use out of it before you have to replace it!! I hate my helmet that I have right now. I cover it up with a colorful helmet cover whenever I ride!

...but in green.

Every ride, good or bad, teaches you something new.
