Red Ford I've heard some dumb things asked before, and I've asked some dumb things myself, however this climbs the list to be one of the stupidest things I've ever read lol.

My points about having used up most of my luck, and technology improving helmet design. I'll get a good one but it won't be $700

Now let's just make it to summer to do some riding before the corona virus hits here. It's way worse than is being reported

6.7ferd I wore a open faced helmet riding, because 9 out of 10 times I was going to work and you have to wear a helmet onto the property for insurance reasons.

nitrogen You can survive a hundred motorcycle crashes without a helmet, so long as you never hit your head. But about the first non helmet accident where your head hits the asphalt the odds are really good it's going to be your last accident. And if you do survive hitting your head without a helmet, the odds are really good your intelligence level is going to be somewhere between carrots and lettuce

I've been thinking I've probably used up most of my get out of the hospital free cards and am thinking maybe it's time to get one. Looking at prices is mind blowing though, showed my wife that Shoei GT-air, she said I wouldn't have to worry about getting killed on the bike cause she'd kill me if I spent that much on a skid lid.
I suppose technology has come a long way since the days when I was helping ABATE fight mandatory helmet laws. Back then research showed full face helmets caused an unusually high number of broken necks. That's why I was always on the "let those who ride decide" side of the argument. If I do start wearing one I'll prolly just stick with an open face style. Old habits die hard.

In some cases they pool 1280 acres to do 6 wells, they have to maintain specific separation on horizontal wells. At any rate the guy who called represents the company that holds all the rights around me. I just hope they wait till after August 1st to do anything, I want another check for nothing.
Ah, I should've known they were fracking, that's a little different.

[emoji1787][emoji1787][emoji1787] I hope you're right about that check, though.

I just had some new shoei's come in for summer and I. I went with the gt air II as I prefer the internal drop down visor. She opted for the rf1200 with the option for a photo chromatic (transitions) visor.
I also liked that the gt air II was designed directly for the SRL2 sena to be installed.
While we went with the cardo packtalk slim with JBL for her helmet.

I must say, damn hers rocks! Lol. The cardo fits so slim it looks even more integrated than mine, and the cardo is leaps and bounds above the sena in terms of operation functionality and sound quality. So I may be sending mine back and going the same route as her.

The reason i didnt is it seems the transitions visors are quite the work to take care of, and they fade as the number of transitions add up.

I donít live in an area that is o rely sunny or hot and do a fair amount of night riding so for me the tinted ext visor isnít for me
