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.

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

Kind of wierd as I was adopted.
