    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Crash Test U-Vex XP Helmet

    25+ mph crash, I ordered a new U-Vex XP 2011 helmet for $49, free shipping, from R.E.I. today, I broke my favorite helmet, and my clavical (collarbone), this helmet fits great, looks great, I'll miss the 2009 Skull helmet, and it works when needed.
    Below is the helmet, and CAUTION alot of F words in my crash vid, then a vid of the aftermath.

    This reminds me why I don't like to ride alone. It was hard enough dealing with a broken hand last year after falling off an obstacle. I was thankful I had my friend with me that day to tell me how perfect of a scorpion pose I had when I hit the ground; oh and it was nice of him to load the bikes and drive my 5 speed home for me since I couldn't do it for my self. :-/
