I like the looks of the Parabelum Scout but it is a bit pricey for me. The search continues to find the perfect windshield.

Ive done a couple of 1000Km days and inter state trips and I like a screen.

I commute on mine in -7C Canberra and I need a screen

Im soft obviously.

I dont think it spoils the looks too much, these are practical bikes, workhorses, set them up how you like.

Nice setup.

There isn't one. What works at 50 slams your visor shut at 70, depending on crosswind, headwind and other conditions.

Get some good gear - get a yourself bit fit and you don't need one anyway.

Hold it now.

You have a visor? I thought all you turkeys in NZ wore open faced helmets........made from granite.........with barbed wire chinstraps.

I said 'Your' visor.

I wear a Davida Jet open face mostly - on a Triumph classic anyways - and no screen.

Ah, good for you. Those are lovely helmets. How's the build and general quality? Both myself, and another guy at work have been checking them out a bit lately, but I hate to buy sight unseen. I am trying to peer pressure him into it though.

Thanks.

Cue Twilight Zone theme!

An hour ago I picked it up and inspected it and thought.
'I must write something about this hat.'
How well it's lasted is worth noting. No bull!

It must be almost 5 years old now and the interior is in remarkably good order. It's all leather and silk and old school. No steeenkin' vents or nuffink.

But apart from 5 years of standard scuffage on the exterior - still got plenty of good service left.

They have one with a M*A*S*H graphic that is so coool now.

On style points - I also 'blagged' a new Triumph Retro Jacket.

I've been using Triumph clothing as long as I've had my Tbird and found it very serviceable - given it good write ups and happy to do so - like the bikes it gets better every year. This is really nice quality and Way cool stuff. The web site now works pretty well at displaying it.

Some of it will go real nice wit' Scrambler.
Pic Off the web site.

Oh - I should add - your mate should try the davida on - they are a modern helmet - thickness wise.

I find the Davida aviator goggles alleviate some of the effect - but some folks can look a bit 'Atom Ant' in a modern open face - comes with the territory IYKWIM.

I was looking at those jackets in the shop this morning - really soft leather, but well made. You could get away with just walking around in one, even with the armour in, they dont look like a set of grid iron pads.

Curious about the Davida's aswell Dave, I keep looking at the Speedster though, the Jet seems a bit bolbous, and my head is big enough as it it!
