Then you might be given a hard time at the BMWCC.

It's its a ten year old helmet I wouldn't really recommend using it for two reasons:

-you're not supposed to keep a helmet that long, not even a bicycle helmet. The level of protection is greatly reduced
-think of the previous owners sweat, 10 years of sweat, ready to be unleashed in your hair and face once you start to sweat in it..
"Driving is like a narcotic, an addiction that can take over lives. It ruins people, breaks families apart, and even kills. It’s habit that needs to be fueled. Time, money, rationality, sweat, knuckle skin, and anyone who disapproves are of little importance to a driver, and are often overlooked. Hi, I’m Nelson, and I’m a drivaholic."
