    my dad always said... "if you have a $10 head.. get a $10 helmet."

    QUOTED IN ANOTHER THREAD: "my dad always said... "if you have a $10 head.. get a $10 helmet." I never hear that one....

    My dad's famous one-liners:

    "Son, you might be able to swim with a bowling ball chained to your ankle, but you won't win too many races." that and.......... "Son, it doesn't take a bucket full."

    For those ready to lunge, yes I know this is not bike related. Just thought it would be nice to hear what advice your Dad gave you.

    Cheers

    "Son if you are gonna go stomping in the swamp. Make sure you have your rubber boots on."
    That was the extent of sex talks from my dad.

    Your exact opposite is the Televangelist.

    Other personalities you would probably get along with are the Capitalist Pig, the Smartass, and the Sociopath.

    that'd be great advice if the cost of the helmet was related to the amount of protection it gave you

    "I brought you into this world and I can take you out"

    And, "You can't get blood out of a turnip."
    I don't get that one either.
