    Motorcycle Helmet Buyer’s Guide

    Motorcycle Helmet Buyer’s Guide: Updated January 2018 Helmets are a simple thing: they protect your head from the elements and, as will happen from time to time, asphalt too. They’re a seemingly simple thing, because like all things touched by the exponential march of progress, there’s much more to a good helmet than what meets ...

    Just read somewhere about that 5 year helmet age deadline. I'm due.... Although I take good care of my helmet, i's 7 years old.
    If you can't fix it by hitting it with a hammer, it's electrical!

    Interesting read & perfect timing given I was sitting here surfing the web looking for my next lid..... The OGK has served its days well but it's time for an update.
    No longer a fan of the brand....

    I've always subscribed to the 5 year rule. Over time the EPS liner gets hard and shrinks. When this happens the helmets ability to perform its primary function is compromised. I just purchased a Scorpion EXO 950 moduler helmet and installed a Sena 10R. I just need spring to arrive so I can get back on the road.

    Just like most tires, there is a date stamp of when you're helmet was manufactured too.

    Put on a display shelf and use only while the washed liner of the new helmet is drying
