That's a Scorpion EXO-700. I think Arai also makes a similar helmet called the 'Vector'.

I have the Scorpion optic yellow helmet. Very pleased with the fit and quality of construction. I wear it with a similarly colored Olympia jacket. I can see the soccer moms looking at me as I ride through an intersection.

I think the Shoei is more of a school bus yellow.

Pretty bike Skippy1969,
With the farkles, I'm surprised you still have the stock windshield. If it fits you, how big are you?

Mine last night, with somebody who wanted to play in the Maryland Tag game:

Well, took my first ride on an Fjr. Looked at an 06 with 54K at a dealer in Georgetown. They wanted 7500 plus tt and L. I thought that was pretty high. I rode it for about 20 minutes down some twistys and got it up to about 120 on a straight. Had frame sliders and a throttle lock. otherwise stock. Didnt feel as heavy or cumbersome as I was expecting. Overall a nice bike. I know there are better deals to be found.

Finally got my Aluma trailer set up for my FJR. Bolted down the Condor stand after some measuring to ensure the trailer tongue weight was adequate and purchased some new Powertye tie downs. These rachet tie downs have safety retainers on each end to eliminate any un-hooking and also include genuine sheepskin wraps to protect the paint. Following Condors suggested tie down methods only requires a rachet strap on each side near the rear of the bike and securing it forward at approximately 45 degree angle. I will also secure the front tire to the Condor stand for added security.
I can fit both of my motorcycles on it at one time which is a plus.

First non-advertising photo I've seen of it.
Looks like a blank canvas to farkle upon!
Too bad for your wallet, but a LOT of fun.

the wallet thanked me at only $12,299 new

already has 2-brothers carbon cans, touring screen, steering stem GPS mount and a pair of Michelin Pilot Road 2s waiting for installation. Don't feel the need for any other farkles at the moment.

Come on up to MN during January with your FJR and good medical coverage. We will ride around in stuff like this and then you can understand the need for a trailer



plus I now can take both my bikes with me somewhere instead of just one
