after messin' my neck up on july 4th... and not being able to turn my head for about a week after that... I did some reading while all layed up in pain, and picked up a neck brace... I haven't tried it yet, but it's a pretty cool design and comfy. I'll post up when I get a chance to go back out and give it a go.
I think a helmet might look more dorky than a neck brace.. but i'm not sure yet.. I haven't tried wearing a helmet either.
