A Pitfall of Helmets

Generally speaking, I love my helmet. I find I'm more comfortable wearing it than not, although I do have to live without the joys of wind in my hair. A small price to pay to avoid the sensation of pavement in my hair.

But there is a downside: itches. Somehow, there always seems to be a hair that ends up tickling my ear once I get on to the road. These itches are the itchiest itches that ever itched. It's enough to drive a biker to madness.

I have had a few of those itches also. No amount of itching will cause me to stop, until my gloved hand becomes stuck in my helmet obstructing my vision. Well I might stop before that.

My favorite helmet itch is when a bug gets in there. That's great! NOT!

Nothing like an itchy nose when wearing a full-face.....

Guess that's one of those areas where we bald guys have an advantage.

Itching is nowhere near as bad as sneezing when wearing a full faced helmet!
