Rain or shine, and maybe in the snow (but I live on a damn big hill)

Mostly, I'm a two planker in the wintertime. But the D606s should fair as well as any in mud and snow. Better hook up my aux. lights, too. I've got an interesting question for y'all, however.

What's the best helmet for Fall and Winter riding, where it's nice to be warm and not feel stinging drops of sleet at 60+ mph, i.e. have full face type coverage and be fog free, as much as possible, too? Does anyone feel that one brand or style is vastly superior to the rest?

My arai signet has never let me down..... rain, hail, sleet, snow, dirt..... plus it has that nifty chin thingie that directs the snot down and away when you have a cold and sneeze in it....

I'll probably do even less dirt stuff than I am doing now, but my GS is my main mode of transport, so after I wear out this set of TKC's, the Trailwings go back on.

Armed with that much information, I can shut off the GPS!

All year for me as well. Unless the overpasses threaten to ice up.

I only had to use the truck twice last winter because of icing conditions.

Ride on,
Kev..

year round

been doing the 30mi each way on the hardley for many moons. worst case will be a couple of weeks in jan or feb due to potential ice issues. other than that, it would not seem natural not to ride.
