It had only been a couple weeks since I started to use the Icon after my garage was broken into and my AFX was stolen. Hasn't been a very eventful new year

That stinks. How did you like it up till then?

It's a bit more engaging than just sitting around waiting for your name to be drawn, too. Maybe a quick auction or two to change things up without bogging things down. If Mark's efforts are typically great, most people might end up with some swag either way.

John, I'm cool with any decision you make.

It was alright. Usually the higher end helmets don't fit me all that well. Then only quirk I had was the visor and field of view. The visor was a little stiff and the tab to open it was small. The field of view was narrow compared to the other helmets I wore. When I went to look over my shoulder, it wasn't enough for my preipherals to see behind me. I'd usually have to spin on the seat see behind me. The sound dampening was a little more than my AFX. All around a decent helmet. I just replaced it with a Fly Trekker and it's turning out to be a good replacement.

tell me about it....





I needed letters from my parole officer, the ASPCA and the local Farm Bureau before he put me on it.



And there aren't even any sheep within 10 miles of the place....
