Old helmets...

In a strange twist of government bureaucracy, our FD no longer accepts "old" helmets for accident training... So these had to go to a local volunteer department...

Re: Old helmets...

My first helmet, a Monza Red RF800. I'm sure mine was a couple sizes larger than the one you have there.

Re: Old helmets...

Are you admitting to being a fat head?

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.

Re: Old helmets...

I was gonna use my old Shoei to make a prototype with frame sliders, but ended up just hucking it in the dump.

And then there's this asshole...

Re: Old helmets...

FDs can use old helmets? Never heard of this before.


I've got an Arai sitting around with plans to use it for painting practice. It replaced an old AGV for which I had the same plans but which now lives at the dump. Seemed a waste.

Re: Old helmets...

I don't get it. Why won't they accept them?

Re: Old helmets...

You guys need to buy fancy helmets so after you're done with them you can put them on a shelf to display.
