When you consider that you might have a helmet for say, 4 years – there is a lot of living that goes on during that time. Many roads traveled, friendships made, time shared and adventures experienced.
My old Shark helmet and I have been through a lot together. I suppose that’s why I felt a little twinge of melancholy when my new Shark Racer-R Sutra helmet arrived. Not because I would miss my old helmet per se but because it was like the closing of a chapter.
Is it silly to mark these occasions? Maybe. But I cannot seem to escape doing it.
My Gramma said that it was good luck if it rained on moving day. I carried that little piece of superstition with me and smiled when the rain drizzled down during my first ride home from work in my new helmet. I hope the good luck continues to carry me through the rest of our time together.

Thanks for the memories, Sharky. It’s been fun <3
