DOT Carbon Fiber Look Shorty Motorcycle Helmet

dot-carbon-fiber-look-shorty-motorcycle-helmet.jpgDuring our first date, I was under the impression he was normal.

He had all these nice things, see? He picked me up on a motorcycle and gave me a really nice D.O.T. Certified Carbon Fiber Motorcycle to wear. He was wearing a Rolex and had a really nice tan. He seemed like he had interests. Like he had a life. Like he had a job.

Fast-forward nine weeks into our relationship, and we haven’t done anything but hang out at his house and watch Netflix. He recites dialogue along with sci-fi classics, which is funny the first time, but then you realize he isn’t doing it to be funny. For him, this is like reading along with the liturgist at church.

We haven’t been riding, we haven’t been out to dinner, and watching him fumble with the DVD remote control, I’m starting to seriously doubt he’s a regular at motorcycle bars.

So I ask him. “Hey, John,” I say, all casual-like, “do you want to maybe go ride your motorcycle this weekend?”

He can’t. His back.

“How about tomorrow night I take you out to eat?”

He can’t. His food allergies.

“Well, when do you think I might meet some of your friends?”

He pauses the DVD. Harrison Ford as Deckard is frozen with an expression of alarm, like he knows what’s coming. “This is about us, isn’t it?”

“No, I just… well… Maybe a little. You just seemed so strong on our first date. How come we never do any of that stuff?”

“Fake,” he says. “All fake.”

“What do you mean, ‘fake?’” I ask. You do have a Carbon Fiber Motorcycle Helmet?”

“No, I own a D.O.T. Certified Carbon Design Motorcycle Helmet. The key word was design, it just looks like real carbon fiber”

“You… what?”

“It’s still cool, it has a fiberglass shell, D-ring closure & Meets or exceeds D.O.T. standards. Why should I pay $160 for a real carbon fiber motorcycle helmet when I could just buy this fake one for $60.”

“But… Your Rolex? Your Tan?”

“Yeah, they are all fake. Owning a motorcycle is a pain in the kiester, I’ll tell you that. Having to make that payment every month, not my cup of tea.”

“So… you really don’t have a job at all?”

“Oh, I wouldn’t say that, fooling you is a full time job.”

Kids neoprene face masks

Remember when your little child was in your tummy? That little rascal was probably saying things like:

"Am I done yet? Am I done yet? Am I done yet?"

"Pickles and ice cream. Are you insane?"

"Hey mom. Mom. Mom. MOM. MOM. Mom. MOM. Oh, I'm sorry. Were you sleeping?"

"This bladder sure makes a comfy pillow!"

"We're gonna need to have a talk about your musical preferences."

"Please don't name me Morag."

"I can't understand you when you do that cutesy talk thing."

"Kindly ask that stranger to stop touching us. It's weird."

"I'm going to be really unfashionably late. Just FYI."

"GET A ROOM, you two!"

Well, now little Morag is out and you need to keep him or her warm. That is where our new kids neoprene face masks come in. Check them out and beat old man winter.

badass motorcycle helmets

Iron Horse Helmets employees will look for any reason to say badass.  We also like the word spatula. We never get a chance to use the word spatula, but we do get to say badass a lot.  Here is an example of how we use the word badass.

Hey Mike,"Did you see that cool full skull novelty motorcycle helmet?  It is badass, I bet you die really fast if you crash in that thing."
