For anyone who was considering comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko “small,” one Twitter user has whipped up a scale image.
Well then.
(No, it’s not on its way here, this is the one the Rosetta spacecraft, launched in 2004, is chasing. FOR SCIENCE!)

Shoei GT-Air Helmet | MC Tested

Shoei, by far still make my favorite “top of the line” helmets and the GT-Air one of my favorites to date. I spent a day test-riding one. It was insanely quiet, super stable at high speed, flowed air really well (not quite as well as my X-11 racing helmet), and the sun visor worked better than any I’ve tried and was optically perfect. All-in-all, the GT-Air is a great all around, top quality helmet. Shoei’s last, so the extra cost over budget helmets — and even some not so budget helmets — is justified. Sure, there are cooler looking helmets, but for someone who rides a zillion miles a year like me in all weather on all terrains, it’s hard to beat a Shoei. Worries about the DOT-only rating seem moot, given Shoei’s track record in safety and the fact this is NOT a racing helmet — i.e., it’s not really designed for 180 mph crashes. I’ll be picking one up a matte black a stripe of high-vis yellow, or red, GT-Air Wanderer soon. ;)
