May be time for a new helmet... general guideline is every 5 years. Assorted minor drops and bumps, plus sweat, gas/garage fumes, heat, cold, break down the foam "crash padding."

Your current helmet may no longer protect your gray matter as well as it should.

After trying millions of head coverings (well, a dozen anyway) I've settled with Sliks. I much prefer the silky nature of them, and they're proving very durable. My helmet stays nice and clean.

On hot days I soak it and it keeps me cool for a long time.

In the winter I tend to use an "Anti-freeze" balaclava on really cold days. But I don't have a windshield.

I use the "Buffs" http://www.buffwear.com and "Hadwear" http://www.hadwear.com thingies. There are a couple other brands of these microfiber tubes as well.
