I never saw the point of having your helmet hanging on the bars.

Nice pic though ;)

The helmet's for when I get up to a higher speed than 10MPH/onto a trail/road with cars.
It's hard to take off your camera when you're wearing a helmet!

It is? I have taken the SD550 out of my belt loop pouch at 80+ mph on my motorcycle.

Real bikers wear helmets. Well, those of us that jump off 10' stairwells at 25 mph and other stupid things do! :D OK, that was before I had a kid.

Good shot by the way.

Dude, don't let your mom see this picture. She'll never let up about not wearing that helmet! ;)

Did you take this with the 10-22?

She was behind me, hence why I was going so slowly :lol:

It's a little bit different when it's a 40D wrapped around your neck ;)
The helmet's with me for a reason, I DO have it on most of the time!

Helmet: there's a reason they call them Donorcycles? ;)

When I was racing, the SCCA upgraded their helmet requirements. Someone complained. The reply was, "If you have a $10 head, then wear a $10 helmet. :D
