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.
