So, while I’ve been working here in California, poor old Tiberius (The Custard Racer) has been quietly snoozing and gathering more dust and moss in a lockup back on the East Coast. Planning on loading up a moving truck and driving across the USA (East to West) at end of June. Going to be an exciting roadtrip with my #1 son (Nathan) and I’m just itching to get the motorcycle unloaded, fixed up, tweaked, shined, kissed and on the road…
But I need two things before that
(1) an American Bike license. *oops*
So, I’m planning on doing the California DMV Road Competency thing as soon as the bike gets here. Should be fun, even though its been 15 years since I last took a bike test. I might even invest in a helmet cam and film it for future embarrassment.
Which leads me to:
(2) a new Helmet
My son quietly stole my VEGA offroad helmet — and during all our moves I seem to have lost my AFX fullface helmet (Waaaah!)
So, looking around on line I found the gorgeous looking ICON VARIENT – this seems to be the helmet of choice for many of YOUTUBE’s motorcycle vloggers:
It looks like a kind of upgraded version of my old ARAI DS – but with a large splat of HALO and a little bit SPACE SUIT thrown in.
Now… should I think about just getting it and properly vlogging Tiberius the Trumpet‘s resurgence?
