Thanks for all the advice guys...

I'm currently riding with a Scorpion EX400 size XL. The fit appears to be OK, as I have a 24' head, (Don't ask why I know that. My wife is a RN and her best friend is a neuro-RN who commented on the fact I have a big head and wanted to measure it. Apparently it's off the charts for normal humans...me and Barry Bonds).

Pushrod, the pain is located right at the base of the skull and C1. I do suspect its from the wind "lifting" the helmet as I would have expected it in my traps and shoulders as you said if it was riding position.

I have a similar problem with my dipstick, but the nurses just took my phone number.

Now's your chance to make even more millions running Klazy Ken seminars for neck and back pain. We'll be looking for you on those 3AM TV infomercials.

Better to go for the ascot like Fred in Scooby Doo. He rocked that.

And the point was - the "neighbor" telling Jager71 to do or not do something or else he won't be accepted by the "Faithful" as a "Real Rider".

Jager71 has a moto. He rides it. That's enough for me.

Thank you AirHawk. I won't have to cry myself to sleep on my giant pillow tonight.

Well that's good. One less rider for me to worry about.

You got an 82. That's nine questions you need to review; I really think you should pay closer attention to Chapter 5, pages 113 through 129.
