You've answered my question about my head looking massive
Do yo think they're worht the coin?

On a side note, in the shop today the had an open face helmet by m2r (made 2 race). For less than $150, and its covered in black leather with a goggle strap loop at the base at the back of the helmet. Look pretty cool, well padded, (like this but black leather covered - guess you need to see it!)

Value for money?

That's a can of worms when you take the reduced safety aspects into account?
It's more expensive than some full faces....

As far as service life and durability goes - and cool - yeah.

Thanks Dave, might have another look. Do feel a bit silly somtimes wearing my $100 open lid and leaving the Shark full face at home, but i love the open face feeling (except in stinging rain!)

DISCLAIMER: NOT STARTING AN OPEN FACE VS FULL FACE DEBATE!!!

I'll nuke everything if I have

Look at the FULMER United Kingdom 5UK, very cool looking lid. Checker board, Union jack flags, Short visor. Very old school looking.

Nope, tried there first, the place we bought Susan's bike also handles multiple brands and used bikes and they don't seem too anxious to sell manuals. I bought a Yamaha Virago there once but found the manual online. I was just wondering if there were a good source for shop manuals or failing that what everyone else was using i.e. clymer, Haynes etc...

Back to the windscreen for a moment

I am fully aware that the "perfect" screen doesn't exist but as an all weather rider I would prefer something to keep the rain and snow off just a bit. In the winter I'll also attach a set of lowers to the forks to deflect some of the nasties.

I've got 5 different helmets, a modular for winter, an open face for spring and fall, and shorties of various lengths. I'm still not happy with any of them.

Nothing I've used is worth the overhead of racket they make - unless it is a barn door size.

Then that effects the bike detrimentally in other ways. May as well take the car.

Can anyone confirm if the Triumph part number for the Scrambler service manual is the same as the one for the Bonneville? Or, asked another way, does the Bonneville service manual also cover the Scrambler? Reason I ask is that no service manual is listed in the Scrambler accessories on Triumph's U.S. web site. The Bonneville manual p/n is T3859909.

Thanks!
