    Irony at its best and worst!!

    So, I tried out my new helmet today. Everything about it is great, it breaths well, it doesn't get heavy and I can see relatively well. Also, just as a bonus it will kill a duck at 55-60 mph. yeah, that right, I hit a duck. Ever want to know what it feels like to hit a duck a 55 mph then I come over to your house and smash your skull in with a baseball bat. Oh yeah, did i mention it hurts.........a lot.

    Good news, is that the helmet held up like a trooper and I will never make fun of someone who wears a helmet for rec riding. I'm cured of that.

    When you see a duck flying at you... you should duck!!!!!! LOL

    Glad you are OK. You could have been killed if not for your helmet.

    Just curious, did the helmet hinder your vision from seeing the duck? I think they do limit perephrial vision a little bit.

    Nope wasn't the helmets fault. The duck was dead center. There were white caps all day. Was really hard to see. It just took to air about 10 feet in front of the ski.
