  3. CRF1000L ADV helmet - anyone got issues?

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, I am thinking of getting a Shoei Hornet ADV lid :D but I have seen the odd You Tube Vid and comment about ADV helmets vibrating or there's extra noise because of the "fork tunnel" on the AFrica Twin CRF1000L - basically wind / air streaming up through the forks that disrupts the 'peak'...

  5. Davida helmet and goggles

    I like wearing an open face helmet on my old Transalp. I have a couple of Davida jet helmets which I find very comfortable and quiet but I can't seem to find comfortable goggles to wear with a Davida.

    Hi all, I fancy a "flip-up" lid, mate of mine has a Shoei Multitec and time after time, it's proved that this flip up style is very convenient.

  8. Bluetooth Helmet/Headset Compatibility?

    It is time to replace my long serving helmet, and I'm thinking of investing in a Bluetooth enabled helmet. I like the idea of listening to a few tunes and podcasts when I'm sat on the motorway, and also on the sunny day each year I like the idea of having a chat with her on the back. But, due to...

  10. Open face helmet anyone?

  13. Anyone got one of these ?......

    Hi all, Been sniffing around for a new lid, the usual big names are just too much, so fancied one of these. Has anyone got one / tried one? The Shoei / Arai Tour X lids are massive cash - this seems a little too good for £70? Read some reviews on-line seems good but wondering if anyone has...
