A Pitfall of Helmets

Generally speaking, I love my helmet. I find I'm more comfortable wearing it than not, although I do have to live without the joys of wind in my hair. A small price to pay to avoid the sensation of pavement in my hair.

But there is a downside: itches. Somehow, there always seems to be a hair that ends up tickling my ear once I get on to the road. These itches are the itchiest itches that ever itched. It's enough to drive a biker to madness.
