So my brother asked me a few days ago to try on his helmet to see if it fits, then said he was going to buy me a helmet. He says a lot of stuff and doesn't follow through with it... Last night he calls me and tells me to come over ASAP, so I walk on over and his girlfriend is in a set of brand new Shift gear, with a 6D helmet, and brand new Alpinestar boots. I figured he was going to say she's going to start racing
but nope it was for me! Totally unexpected! 6D helmet, two pairs of X brand goggles, three sets of Shift (for us to share), brand new Astar boots, and decals for the YZ250 we have with my name and number on them. The main reason I haven't been riding past 6 years or so is since I didn't have my own pair of boots, gear, or a helmet, and since I wasn't riding I never bothered investing in it when I had the opportunity to. As for all the people who have some idiotic idea in their head that think I'm still trying to be some pro rider someday, I've ridden once a year for the past 7 years, so yeah that ship sailed a long long time ago.
