Default Re: Nolan N102 Modular Helmet Review

On my MV Agusta with no fairing, the Schuberth is in clean air and very quiet. On my Ducati the windscreen creates quite a bit of buffeting and it's very noisy.



I wear a 3/4 or half helmet on the Geezer Glide.



I wear ear plugs almost all the time anyway.

That's right LR, I figured out that I fit a whole lot better on the Dyna than on the Thrux. I tried different bars and seat on the Thruxton but I'm too big or too creaky to put any kind of miles on it, so I took the hit and traded it for the last '05 FXD they had in. Pretty good deal really, they gave me above market on the Thrux. and ate the shipping and handling and on the Dyna. I guess they didn't want an '5 sitting around with the new style '06's coming in...whatever, pretty stand-up crew.



I'm doing a pipe and jets tuesday but it's a pretty stong pulling motor as is, My '80 inch Shovel with Branch heads and a J grind couldn't have kept up with it. Handles pretty good too. Can I hang out now? I'll buy the beer and tacos...

Alot of places out west, especially in the desert and mountains, far from the interstates, you're lucky if they take credit cards at all, let alone have a card reader at the pump. More likely, there's a few wandering, hungry looking dogs on the lot, especially out in the native american lands.

Snell? Haven't you read the Motorcyclist article on their helmet tests? Snelll isn't everything. Now the European standard is a lot better. Read the article. Snell may mean well, but it has become another way to separate your money from your wallet, and no, I don't wear a beanie. http://motorcyclistonline.com/gearbox/hatz/

Ashley can wear a helmet anywhere, anytime. She's a cutie!

Well, I've crash-tested an HJC Symax (...no, it did NOT pop open!) and replaced it with a Nolan N-100E. The Nolan fits me better than the HJC and the sunshade (yep, double-dorky) is excellent for commuting into the morning sun. As an eyeglass wearer, the modular takes the aggravation out of putting on or removing a helmet. Open the lid; put it on...close the lid and go. The flip-ups, at least the two that I have tried, are a little noisy. I can't wait to try the latest Nolan.

BTW, the flip-up sunshade is an add-on for the N100.

Default Re:

Where do we pick up the tacos?



you'll love the glide. another thing you might want to look at after your jet kit is better shocks. Due to your proportions you'll tax the stock shocks pretty quickly.



Progressive Suspension makes some nice replacements once yours are toast at about 10,000 miles.



I also had all of H-Ds detachable stuff on mine. You can go from full touring to stripped down in about 30 seconds. Very nice.

And some vendors will put a hold on your card up to $50 if you use it at the pump.
