What do yas reckon?



This is the head that needs protecting.

If they'll deliberately take a KLR out of a Kawasaki dealer showroom, they're likely to take anything.

Yep, tried one on at Kessners a few weeks back. Very comfy, they just didn't have the colour I wanted at the time.
Very light! And I reckon a good price for Composite.. Au $430.00 - $450.00. Revzilla have em for $200.00 at the moment if you don't mind not havng a silly little red sticker on your helmet

Peter Stevens in Adelaide have around 10 Trekkers out on special for around $155. I tried a medium on and damn near needed the Jaws of Life to get it off. I guess you could say the sizes run slightly small.

Have to agree with that. Very ordinary. Good enough for a trip to the shop so you dont damage a good helmet for no reason. POS really
