    I nearly ripped my ears off putting on my 15 year old full-face Arai helmet yesterday. It has always fitted, ahem, snug. It was also a b. getting off. :huh

    Haven't used it much in the past 5 or so years and I have even less hair than then. Son of a b. I'm recently over the 6-O mark.

    Actually, our ears (and noses) *do* grow as we age, so it's possible that the little extra on the sides make a helmet more uncomfortable than you remember.

    You're supposed to trim those ear "whiskers" every month or so. That's probably the problem.

    Based on the thread title alone, I was going to post; "Generally, I find people, aside from in their professional lives, get more humble as they get older. You're much more likely to get a racer in their late 40s downplaying how good they are than someone in their early 20s,"

    As to the actual question; no idea!

    You can't see it because it's your belly that's been getting bigger. :rofl
