I've been swapping between a bell full face (in the rain) and a NOS Buco open face from 1974 that I got from the states for when the weather is nice.
With doing more miles and the Hayride looking I decided to have a look at what new helmets were on the market to protect my noggin...
Had a look at Biltwell - not Dot Approved and one size fits all ( I have a pretty big swede) - Licks Helmets - have to import from the states and I'm told it takes up to a month to get them over (plus run the risk of taxes), and then the Bell Custom 500's - Dot approved and available is a couple of colours.
Went with the Bell - so when it arrives I'll do a bit of a write up on it - I'll probably wear it down to the Hayride and back.
