Arai Helmets – Jay Leno’s Garage

I really like the motorcycle stuff that Jay Leno does. I think because he’s a little more calm about things; there’s no thumping soundtrack; he doesn’t dress like an astronaut; he doesn’t try to make himself any cooler than he is (which, of course, is what actually cool people do).
I thought this video was a good follow-up to the post I had about wearing gear, but also it features some interesting facts about helmets that contradict what I’ve always been told by the ATGATT contingent. The first is that if you set your helmet on your bike and it falls off, it’s not necessarily ruined. The second is that painting your helmet doesn’t necessarily ruin it, either.
