Wear your helmet (again and again and again)

Could've been worse. I was still seeing stars even with a helmet.

Ouch, I'll share mine too, just got this on Sunday while mountain biking.



Only a slight concussion, wow was I confused, never had that happen before.

Needless to say, I have to buy a new helmet, the old one is done.

Oh well, still a bit sore now, but I can't wait to get back out on the bike.

Well, I was out on the MTB and crashed. Survived that one just fine, but I broke my seat. So I took the seat off and tried riding out without it.

Turns out, it's real hard to reide a bike with no seat.
