I confirmed my suspicions of a bad HID ballast instead of the bulb. Maybe 1 in 10 times the ballast would ignite the bulb, but once the bulb is lit it's 95% as bright as the other. Swapped the ballasts and sure enough- the problem followed the swap. It's 8* out, and since our garage door is broke, I was out there for about an hour without any shielding from the wind. I have a feeling I'm going to come down with a nasty cold.

Sorry, I was referring to baconbits about the hockey helmet--- for mountain biking.

As for motorcycle helmets, IIRC they're not allowed typically because lots of them are not Snell 2005 approved, just DOT. Otherwise I'd use my motorcycle helmet for AutoX... Don't quote me on that though.
