Just a reminder guys, PLZ WEAR YOUR GEAR!
I always wear my gear, but sometimes i will raise my visor on my hemet, when traveling at slower speeds. Well a couple of weeks ago, was riding during the day, hot as hell, so was riding with my visor up, got something in my eye. So pulled over, flushed my eye out, it got real irritaded the rest of the day, and the next day. well that was on a sat, sun i said if it does not get better by mon, i would go see my doc.
Well mon came, felt fine. 2 weeks later, the day befor yesterday, my eye started hurting again, woke up yester day morn, eye matted shut, hurt like hell, off to the doc.
well, come to fing out i got a very small piece of metal inbedded in my eye, very rusty, had to go to a surgeon, they cut it out, because it had healled over the metal, then they had to grind out all the rust.
So now i'm down, for about a week, The moral is helmets are not just for crashing, they make damn good eye protection, when used properly, ride safe guys!
