Hello there! This is your helmet. I don't have a name like your beautiful bike. For some reason you never took the time to give me one. Despite that though, you did take the time to put me on every time you went out for a ride. You even told your blog readers what a great helmet I was in this post here. I just wanted to let you know what an honor it has been protecting your head all those miles. I know that most days you didn't even think twice about me. Don't worry - I'm used to that. I'm not really in it for the glory. In fact, it would be my pleasure to never have to actually protect your head from anything!
I just wanted to say, I'm so thankful I was there on that day to come between your head and the road. Really, it was a suicide mission for me. One crash is all it takes to take a helmet like me out of commission forever. One crash without me though, is all it takes to take you out of commission forever. I am not just an accessory to match your bike. I am not just something to make you look cool or to cover up your bed head. I am essential to your life. I am honored to keep you safe. Please honor my successor even more than you have honored me.
Better a cracked helmet than a cracked head.
After my accident I emailed Rudy Project, USA and thanked them for making such good helmets. The president of the company immediately emailed me back with caring concern and thankfulness that I was okay. He also sent me a new helmet AND new sunglasses, even though I wasn't wearing Rudy Project sunglasses when I crashed.
I cannot say enough about a company like this. This goes well beyond good customer service. If I ever have the great opportunity to meet Paul, I will give him a huge Trimommy hug. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! If you are on the market for sunglasses or a helmet, this is the place to go. Right now at www.e-rudy.com, if you buy a pair of sunglasses you can get a helmet for free! Look cool, protect your noggin - it's a win-win!
Do you wear a helmet? All the time? Give your helmet the honor it deserves for doing a job it hopefully never has to do.
