I'm tired of my head being pulled off my neck and having neck cramps when riding more than 30 minutes....

So I bought a full face helmet... sorry it doesnt lend itself to the traditional "Harley Image", but I like it.



Whatdya think?

Its the KBC Force RR helmet... $203 delivered from helmetcity.com, sure beats paying $500 bucks for a Shoei or Arai with similar quality graphics.

Besides, naked chick on your helmet? Tell me that wont get some looks :)

Seriously... Shoei makes a great helmet, but I've already spent soooooo much money on mods, I think the KBC helmet is just as good looking as any Shoei or Arai helmet graphics out there...

Hence, my decision :)

$203 bucks? That's a great price on a great helmet...

Hey, that Joe Rocket jacket, I got for $161 bucks delivered from http://www.tonker.com... Tonker was the cheapest price I could find on the net for Joe Rocket gear.

She's facing the wrong direction. She should be arching into the wind. Silly painters/decal makers.

That's a great looking helmet, but the colors don't match up with the DX's dark theme. IMHO
I agree, i was looking for a color matched helmet for my DX.

You'll probably find its cheaper because its not snell ? (think thats the word) approved , which is race aproved which most shoey's and arai helmets are . I could be wrong though :)

so it meets or exceeds the standards set by DOT and Snell, but it isn't certified by Snell. that's why it's less expensive. it costs a bit of money to certify the helmet.

Hey Mark,

I like the helmet. In keeping with the theme, paint a skull and cross bones on that girl's hip. Denim Black of course...

NightRoder,

Good idea on the skull and cross bones... I can use the fine tip of a Sharpie permanent marker.

As for Snell certification.... you're absolutely right that certification costs bookoo bucks!

I'm a dentist, there a plenty of tooth pastes out there that dont have the ADA seal of approval that are great tooth pastes... the reason they dont have the ADA's blessing, is because clinical trials cost too much money! That is, just because a toothpaste has fluoride in it, doesnt mean the fluoride protects your teeth... the binders/filler ingredients used in some toothpastes sometimes make the fluoride molecule too big to be incorporated into the enamel, hence its useless.

Anyay, all black on the DX... I deliberately wanted to mix it up a bit with a more ostentacious helmet and jacket :) C'mon, I've already got a huge 2lb torpedo on the right side! Bombs Awaaaaaaaaay! hahahahaha.

Kaz, did you get the Airborne Helmet same as me? Copy Cat! hahahha... I cant wait to get it. I'm glad it comes with the smoked lense.
