Something maydaze said struck me funny, so I thought I'd make a poll to see what everyone else does.

What do wear during trail side pit stops?

Nothing, I just let my hair go wild.

I have long hair and it looks pretty wild most of the time anyway! Besides, if my ears are getting cold, it's time to get back on and ride some more!

I usually carry a rotten ol' baseball hat zipped up inside my jacket. When we stop, I take my helmet off, and slap the hat on.

Its got to be old and broken though, none of these new, high sittin' starched jobbies!

i have a hat like this http://ripperd2.dhs.org/images/snowmobile/crooked%20lake/meintherv.JPG that I have in my pocket, that I wear when I take off my helmet. I also have pretty short hair, so it doesn't even look bad messed up so.....

I take off my helmet and throw on a hat. Always keep a baseball hat in the trunk of the sled or inside your coat. I can't stand the helmet staying on. Tiny bit clostrophobic and when I am riding it doesn't bother me since I am focused on the ride or other thoughts but at a stop i find it hard to breath and very uncomfortable.

I do the same thing as madcow, flip up the balaclava or nothing. Depends how cold it is.

I just flip up balaclava also, or just take it off completely. I hate carrying stuff in my jacket.

Call me wacked or worse, but when I go out riding with my buddies and I know we are stopping to the local watering holes, I make sure everything looks fine. Sled waxed and armor all'd, helmet waxed, outfit clean, cool shirt and hat. I have several hats from 3 different Polaris models to my Ward Burton Cat Racing hat. You never know what 'snow bunnies' you are going to run into! You know what I mean?

By the way, where the hell is the snow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Modular helmet. No need to take it off. Drinker smoker special I call it. However in spring I go the route of the baseball cap.

I keep mine in my windsheild bag.Doesn't crush it and it won't get covered in snow.They also make bags now, specifically for hats,that go over the middle of your handle bars.

I always keep mine zipped up in my jacket. I like carrying around an old broke-in beat up one, so crushing it isn't a concern
I don't like carrying it in the back compartment because snow always seems to get in and get everything wet. But hey, thats just me.

We dont stop on the trail very often. When we do though, I don't wear anything, even if it's cold. I'm usually sweating anyways, so I take my coat off and head thing off to cool down for a minute because we usually only sit a minute or two then go again. But when we go into a gas station or bar or some other place for a long period, I throw on my hat.

I may be young, but I ain't dumb!!! (I might seem like it, but I'm not. Anyways I don't think so.)
