    Rider's Edge in Heidelberg have got at least one XL in now too (forgot to ask if they had others). I'd wrongly figured they weren't going to call me back. To make it up to them, I've got them to get me a Shoei Hornet in ... hell, I might even buy something eventually!

    Free plug because they were nice about it: http://www.ridersedge.com.au/

    That Benelli, yeah, the 19" "Amazonas" version of it looks pretty good, not a real hard offroader though somehow I suspect. I wish manufacturers would go back to just putting simple headlights on the front instead of all this plastic fairing gubbins.

    Just got mine in matt titanium, happy as a pig in poop, usually wear a large but got the med, firm but comfy. It looks a bit wierd but is very quiet and seems like very good quality. I did the standard 'chuck ya head up and see what the visor does while scooting along fast trick' and boringly bugger all happens.:thumb

    Dropped mine and cracked the peak.

    Now it buzzes and vibrates like crazy.

    Anyone know if you can buy a replacement?

    Otherwise I guess I'll be super gluing it!

    Bills MC's did have them when I bought mine 4 months ago (didn't get it there though, just called the Aussie distributor and gave them my head size in cm's was delivered to the door and fits like a helmet should).

    I wear glasses and apart from a water crossing one night that resulted in clouds of steam coming up onto me I haven't had a problem with glasses fogging up with my Zeus

    I think that would have fogged up any surface. heck, that same crossing fogged up my GPS screen, and my entire 950 windscreen.

    Where abouts in syd did you get your zeus, Paul?

    Well we went back to Ringwood and ried on a XXL. And it was still too damn tight...

    I tried an X-Large Arai XD and it fits almost perfectlty. ( a wee bit snug, but I guess the foam will squish a bit.)

    How does that work, everyone talking about how big a Zeus is... I can't fit an XXL... and yet I can comfortably fit an XL Arai...

    I really liked it but I aint paying $899 for one...

    So i ordered one from states for $500...

    How are the V-Strom riders finding this helmet, more so those with a stock screen?

    Does anyone know a place in West Melbourne / Geelong that stock them? If not I'll try A1 and a few other places later this week.
