Happy Birthday Wreck for me! What new bars?

Recommended Posts

Man what a beautiful day for a birthday. Cant beat having it on a nice sunny saturday when i just moved some dirt around on my "track" yesterday. So why not go out for a spin on the x2? Couple laps around and what do you know, FACE FULL OF DIRT!

Helmet kept the headache to a minimum and minor scrathes on the shoulder is all so no bid deal at all. Unfortunately my bars with my nice new renthal kevlar grips permanently attatched with pro taper glue are all tweaked up now!

I'm already heading into a shop today so i'm wondering....

WHAT BARS DO I WANT TO GET FOR MY 08 X2?

The pro-taper xr50's are definitely a great bar. I hope you feel better, and if your helmet hit pretty hard, budget in a new helmet. Sounds a lot like my crash was and I ditched the helmet afterwards. Sucks, but I don't want to take a chance that it won't protect the next time I take a digger, because the way I ride, it's only a matter of time.

haha, yeah thanks for the advice guys. i didnt get a chance to pick up a set yet.

i didnt realy land that hard on the helmet, the shoulder took most of the fall! i definitley know if you take a good fall on the helmet you're supposed to replace it.
