Ok...No "turtle shell" then...I found one on thtis site I posted that looks pretty good...It looks like a fighter pilot helmet! All I'll need is a gas mask!
In Tx its the law to have a license over 50 cc engines....Ok,....This is what actually happened here...Janelle got a good deal on a 50 cc scooter....I told her its way to small for driving back and forth to work...Noel said it would probablt burn up really quick...At any rate, I decided to try it! Boy, was it scary!! :shock:...But, there was something about it that I liked. We had some money from the IRS still....I did research on these scooters as by this time I had to have one too! These two are Yamaha Zumas', 125 cc's. Just a little bit beefier than most to be able to handle unpaved roads( Not Off road). Since I was a kid I always wanted a motorcycle, but at an earlier time I figured I better not get a bike the way I used to drink, so I opted for Several boats over the years. Now, I pretty much dont drink anymore and things just kinda happened :)
My old boss used to ride all the time....He was an older guy, about 65 or so, and he was reallt a pweeson most people didnt like. Anyways, he took another job up in Colorado springs with my company......Doug was always one to say he'd never wear a helmet..He always said he was old enuff to decide....After about a month up there he got ran off the road, bounced over a curb, and hit a tree head on! (with his head! no helmet!)
He is now just like Superman....Cant move...has a thing that makes him breath too....Its really sad..Like I said before, most people didnt like him , But, out of pity I suppose, Janelle and I used to always invite him to sit with us in the bar we all used to go to on Fridays. I used to be accused of sucking up and making plans with management back then....I was Union Shop steward and we werent supposed to mix with management...But,.....NOBODY tells ME who I can and cant hang out with, and on a few instances I had to make that clear to people.
Oh yeh, Cindi...In Tx people dont have to wear helmets...as long as they can show they have medical coverage insurance that covers motorcycle wrecks :). Just over the river tho, Oklahoma requires helmets to be worn all the time.
I appreciate all the expressions of care here that you guys have shown me and Janelle! Thank you very much! I'll post more pics soon!
