Next step, to get myself a good helmet.
Some research told me HPC was one of the best helmet brands to go for. Figured the store in Bangalore near Lal Baug that stocked the brand. Went there and settled for the only one which fit my head. It was a pretty good one too. It has real vents which let air flow in and out, the entire lining is detachable and washable and is reputed to be able to really protect one’s head. Cost a pretty penny too, 7.5k. But what the heck my bike cost 1.7 L and I do value my head a bit.
