I'm thinking about doing it. On a ride this morning a magpie decided to have a crack at me. Now while this has been known to happen in Australia, it's currently six months or so out of season. This comes after a run of magpie attacks at the end of the last season (basically since I bought this helmet). There have been suggestions that the yellow and black combination is what's attracting them, in which case, I'd like to change it without shelling out for a new helmet (because I really don't need a new one just yet).
On the other hand, this morning's attack happened in Robina, which is a s**thole at the best of times, particularly when the temperature is around 41 C, so maybe the magpie could be excused in this case!
