Speed and Strength opinions? They run just below middle in the price wars it seems.

Thank goodness they're removable.

I still like the DS helmet (mine's a Shoei Hornet DS) due to the big nose/mouth space for breathing and less fogging, AND the full street-size visor for full insect & dirt protection. I never could get into the dirt-bike helmet w/ goggles thing.

The Icon bill is pretty innocuous at speed, and AJ has a good point on the nose/mouth space- makes eating corn dogs on the move easier

will he ride too fast on the first day,,on the ride home,,git a ticket! (I woulda if I coulda, but I was buyin' a klr),
I'd take a break,,stop for cocktails and cigars at the halfway point,You know, the truck stop with the rooms,,the trailers out back?,,you must have been there?!,,,well, never mind,, then ride terrified slow all the way home,,, or have 3 extra drinks,, and ride balls out!,,go for it,, you only die once!

Helmets

I have a bunch of different Helmets. I love the Dualsport style hats. I have a Shoei Hornet, love the way it fits but it is a foggy sucker in wet weather. Pin Lock is a must. I also have a Bilt Explorer that was free with a jacket purchase. Normally around a hundred dollars. I had low expectations but it has really surprised me. The cheap hats still have to pass the same testing the expensive ones do. They are made from lower end materials and wear out faster. I also have a Shoei Modular, great hat but I really miss the visor. I also bought us a set of AFX open face hats with visors, face shields and drop down sun shields. They are pretty trick and work well for an open face hat. We use them in the Sand Car mostly. I have used it a few times on the Ural and it was fine.

Winter Gloves

I use a modular approach. Klim Motocross glove inside of an extra large pair of Aerostich Buckskins. I run hand protectors on the bars also. If I am going to spend all day in the rain I will add a big pair of Concrete worker rubber gloves for waterproofness. I have spent a metric ton on fancy ass gortex gauntlet gloves and all have fallen short. I also run grip heaters on part of the bikes.

an overglove made about like the latex stretchies but with tear resistance that would pull right over your reggalar gloves seem like would work for rainforest living

Saw that. Unfortunately the head I'm trying to protect won't fit in it.

Should I be interested in these or is it not a good fit for my future?

Morning everyone. The good news is it's Friday, and rain isn't in the forecast. The bad news is they bumped Monday's rain to Sunday. Knew that would happen.

But this all depends on which forecast you're watching, some say dry 3 days, some say 1.
