  • I have to agree with your comments on the Shoei GT Air II. When my partner and I need to replace our aging GT Airs we both looked at the all new GT Air 2. I managed to talk her out of it for the same reasons you mention here. Old discounted stock of the GT Airs we had come to love were still available, albeit in less fancy colour schemes or choices the new range has. And I'll keep my double D rings thanks 👍

  • I don't like the concept of 'a helmet makes you invincible'. A helmet can be helpful in preventing abrasive injuries in a slide or from minor bumps or hitting jagged objects however they do not actually stop your brain from decelerating. They prevent skull fractures which can cause intrusion into the brain but with an impact that high of energy would probably kill you anyway. Its pretty much a false sense of security.

  • Moved from Cardo to Sena within Schuberth helmet ... Honestly apart from battery (much better within Sena/Schuberth system) I can see no differrence for my riding: Smaller groups (up-to 4), usually two max three motorbikes. Every device can be paired with every device if pairing it correctly within seconds (Sena+Cardo)... No big deal I would say with intercoms anymore. Sure agree that this statement is valid only to my style of riding (+two brands) and might be completely wrong for others...

  • what's the point in almost any of them if helmet sizes never go above XXL. For us, people with big and clever heads of 3-4XL the helmet world is a tiny and miserable place... Love your vids however, refreshing and light like a glass of pimm's on a hot, summer afternoon.

  • Wait, there are riders who prefer slow, unwieldy, inconvenient , can't-use em-with gloves D-rings over a speed ratchet strap? Well that's insane.

  • "...their usual graphics designer..." Aside from hilarious... You may have no clue how right you are. (But perhaps the manufacturer is, eh?) "Con" is the actual old and also Hebrew pronunciation of of "Cain" ("Cah-in") Long story shortened... We speak "Phonetically" because we speak "Phoenician-ly'.. and where we get our alphabet, as well. They worshipped Saturn. Con is Chiun is Khan is Kaiwan (and others). All are equated with Saturn... Which is Satarn (also Satyr)... Which was bastardized into.. you guessed it... Satan So... (Eye)Con IS Satan Food for thought, eh? I put the "eh" in there 'cause you're in Canadia ;-)

Can you give me your opinion of the Scorpion exo 1400 that you reviewed against the original Shoei GT Air? They seem to be around the same price now, assuming I can find my size. Looking to replace my old RF - 1000. Thanks.

  • Has FortNine done a review on the Torc t14? I've recently gone from a Vespa [for my first 6 months of riding] to a full Honda 700CC. The Torc T14 seemed good for 35MPH-ish city driving, but I'm wondering how it fares for actual freeway commutes. It is DOT and ECE; obviously not Snell because of the slide down sun visor. Any comments or advice greatly appreciated. Thank you
