Today at wildwest Honda with KTM

It was an amazing day today at wild west hinda. KTM was there offering demo rides, boy I tell you that RC8 is of a bike. they also had a drawing for a leather jacket, KTM bag pack and 700$ KTM edition suomy helmet :.
When I was going there this morning, all was thinking about was wining the helmet, since my helmet is pretty much trashed for the track and I canít afford to get a new one. Tuned out, I didnít and I won the bag instead. Which I gave a away and the end of the day to someone else because I had no use for it (worth about 150$ ish). Even though I had a lot of fun riding the bikes around I was pretty sad since that was the only chance I had at replacing helmet for the track. As I was walking to my bike a lady that worked at wild west Honda approached me and said:
Lady: the lady that won the helmet just called and said that she wants to helmet to you since she just bought a brand new X11 and has no use for this one.
Me: you gata be joking me!
Lady: no kid you not! but unfortunately we have to order you a helmet since the one we have here is an XS even though we ordered a large one for todayís give away. So what size should I order it for ya?
Me: XS!! Thatís the size i wear, unbelievable.
So anyhow it is funny how things turn out sometimes.
I would like to fist off thank the lady that gave me the helmet ( I also called her up and personaly did so as well), and wild west Honda for being so great as usual supporting Houston riders; last but not the least to KTM for giving us the opportunity to demo ride their great bikes

Sounds like that helmet was destined to be yours! I saw the KTM trailer in their lot the other day and told myself to find out if they were doing demo rides. Needless to say I forgot about it. The RC8 is way cool. I rode it and four other KTMs at the Int. Motorcycle show. I really like the super duke too.
