Default New Lid

I finally got off my a$$ and bought myself a new lid. My old flip-up Schuberth was ancient and just not pretty enough for my face.

So I picked up a Shoei RF1000. It's got some goofy graphics on it that make me look like the grim reaper or something but it's the best helmet I've ever owned.

It's really comfortable and the vents really work like vents. It's about half the weight of my old helmet and I look oh so cool while strafing the corners on my Ducati.

So that's how you spend your annual bonus, huh?

More like the "German peering out of a pillbox on Normandy circa D-Day" sorta ugly.

Them Schubies might be ûber-cool and full O' gewgaws, but the stylin' shizznit, they ain't.

I had one of the original golf ball looking ones when I was a Beemer pilot, it was nowhere near as comfy as a Shoei
