Phill, could you please crash and land on your head a few times and then get back to us with the results?

nope

I have a sonic helmet that looks identical the the fly trekker but its got a second tinted visor that goes over the clear visor.
when the clear visor is down you can then have the tinted one up or down.
Its a bloody good idea

I prefer the fly/sonic over the dakar.



Where can you buy a good haggis in this country?
