-Ugliest damn helmet I ever saw is that stupid looking motorcycle style fire helmet. LEATHER FOREVER!!!!!!

I first saw this style back in the late 80s. Our European brothers were wearing them and a couple of departments over here attempted to "change the world". It didn't take.

It's bad enough that we still battle the Tupperware vs. the Traditional. But, to go completely away from either could be blasphemous.

Think about it.

Could you see the FOOLs getting on board?

Not in a thousand more years.

Good blog though.

Selling out our tradition for a helmet that is more safe?


I am not sure I am ready for that. Seriously. Is that bad?

Interesting, I believe it will be a tough sell here to change the helmet style.
