    Hi guys, im currently riding a f650 dakar and am doing a lot of travelling at the moment, which means a lot of high speed motorway riding. My helmet is a shoei hornet ds, as I like the peaked off road looking lids. But I find the wind catches under the peak so much and kills my neck. I was...

    Could anyone suggest a good Helmet Cam I would like to buy one for my O/H for when he is away on trips and green laning. It needs to be able to withstand the vibration from his GSA. And lots of brutal useage :-D

    brought one of these helmets at the BMF show on saturday and i can totally recommend them to anyone. its an uber flashy carbon one, weighs 1200G and is really comfy. it's so light that even at speed you hardly even know you've got it on. and it doesn't even surrender noise reduction to save...

    It's a shame that a £5K+ bike doesn't come with the single most useful feature that even 50cc mopeds get.... But the Dakar has nowhere to lock your lid. Well mine does now, it works a treat and it was FREE..... The only slight caveat is, it only works if you have a BMW topbox fitted. Step 1/...

    just thought this may be of interest the new SHARP crash helmet scoring system that is being introduced. not all helmets have been tested; the site is pretty much a live database that is being continually updated, but by the look of it the big hitters are going to get upset!

    Hi. I have looked in "Useful Web refs", and trawled the net in vain. Does anyone know a supplier of those narrow helmet stickers that contain a flag, surname, and blood group?

    I'm after some advice about crash helmet choice. i currently have Shark S500, which leaks like a sieve in the rain and is, to be honest, an utter pain in the arse. noise is not TOO much of a concern, curable by earplugs, but i would dearly love a crash hat that doesnt leak. only other...

    Got myself an Arai Astro about 2 months ago. This model has the quick release visor system. Last week I removed the visor to install a pinlock insert and noticed that the visor was cracking where it pivots around the mechanism. Took it back to Heine Gericke, who sent it back to Arai. The...

    Hi All, I am in the market for a new lid. Has anyone had any experience, or got any knowledge of the Roof Daytona and the Shark RSI. I like the look of both, but if they are form over function, that is no good. :naughty: Was thinking of spending between £200-£250. Any recommendations in...

    Morning all, My ride to work, which I am lucky to do two or three times a week, is directly into the rising sun. I'd like to get a darker visor but I believe that DARK ones are illegal, however I think I also read somewhere that there is such a thing as a lighter legal tint. Would anyone...

    Hi Please can you recommend a better crash helmet than this one, I have a shoei syncrotec 2 I've had it for six months and I have gone off it. It's too noisy, flies seem to be able to get inside! and I seem to have an air stream going in my left eye at all times, changed the visor it made...

    All! I am on the look out for a new helmet and wonder what you lot would suggest. I have a Takai flip front helmet presently. It was cheap and I know it but it was matt black and in the sale at Hein Garricke in Bristol so I couldn't resist, but now looking for something better. I want to...

    Im after a new helmet and dont know what to go for. Ive currently got an AGV Demon Vent but fancy either an Aria Tour-x type (HJC are bringing out a similar one) which look cool or a flip up lid so I can enjoy the fresh air! Think I'll keep the AGV for noisy long motorway trips So what helmet...

    I recently bought one of these off ebay for ?39.00 They seem really good, and make people more aware of your presence. I don't know what it looks like from the back, as I normally have my head in the helmet at the time, but it does seem quite bright when I check it. Any opinions on these?
