    Try it on, decide for yourself
     

    I'm not having a go at ya Dak, but a forum is a place where you share information, and compare thoughts on things. In this case, its an N42, and ColdCola wants to hear from people who actually have them (Me, My Wife and I think Brendon at HQ swears by them also), so that he can get an opinion from others as to what they are like. Of course your advice is to try it on for themselves, but that's not what was asked.

    If someone asked what a SportCity 125 was like, you'd really want to let them know how you've found it, how much you love it, and your experiences you've had with it, cost, dealer relationship etc. You'd not tell them "Go ride it an see for yourself" eh? Wink

    Cheers, only trying to be polite and not do the DakAttack on ya.

     

    All of the Dozer clones recommend the Nolan N42.

    Dozer, I just have to say here.............. NICE CHICKEN FILLETS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: Nolan N42 -- good helmet?

    Just to add my two-cents worth:

    I have a Nolan N84 that uses the same tinted visor setup. After 5 months of use I have noticed that it seems to rub on the clear visor and scratch it where it makes contact. The clear visor also seems to be made of a much softer material than that of my old Shoei one and I think I will need to replace the entire thing after only a year of use due to all the scratches.

    Another thing is the wind noise that the tinted visor creates when you have it in the up position. If you are not likely to need the tinted screen on a ride, I would take it off. Above 80kph it whistles like mad and drives me nuts.

     Chicken strips refer to tyres that are not used to the corners. People that ride on freeways and highways that don't do corners end up with 'Chicken strips'.

    When Dakoda was down at Scooter HQ on Friday I commented that your tyres in that pic look like they had good  'chicken strips'. 

    We all had a bit of a laugh and Bendon said that I should post it but Dakoda beat me to it!

    When I was riding back from Sydney people around me must have thought I was pissed because I was weaving all over the road for two reasons, 1. I was a bit bored and 2. So I didn't end up with 'chicken strips'.

    I knew Brendon would have a field day when I went back to the shop with 1,800km of highway riding and no twisties....... you guessed it I would have had Chicken strips.

    I'm surprised that you haven't heard the term before, I've been around bikes since I was a kid (father used to race at Bathurst) and I thougth it was a common term.

    So now you know what they are.

    Cheers,

    Can I ask how much they are?  I like the looks of it and I am a fan of open face helmet.  I like that little sunshade too.

    Re: Nolan N42 -- good helmet?

    Ahhh 'chicken strips' I get it now thanks for the lowdown. Thanks shitstirring Brendo. The photo was taken after me and Mrs dozer rode up to Ceccanti winery in the Kiewa Valley, and there's a fair bit of dirt road (shoulda seen the air filter). The photo also has a slippery when wet sign, due to the mossy residue under the willow trees (this back road runs along a loverly river). Riding with Mrs dozer, who's only been riding for 11 months or so Dak, I felt of fair to go slow along both dirt and sealed roads so she had confidence on her fort country ride (plenty of roos and wombats on that road too). So, as you can probably tell, YEP your smartarse comment Dak annoys me cos my 'chicken fillets' have a reason of safety and Mrs Dozer has not even have the skill that you have Dak. Mrs Dozer had a Vmoto Milan, that had the front wheel nut come loose while riding at 60km/h and pearly bailed. This situation severely crushed her confidence, to the point I had to sell the little scoot and replace it with her Sprint (another disaster). Mrs Dozer rides for fun, not to impress others, it was hard to get her back on a scoot after the near misshap. When I give her a new scooter for Xmas, I will promise to get her throwing the scooter over and grinding the stand with sparks and all. As for my chicken strips, you got me. Sorry I don't always make the locsl newspaper with my rural rides. Perhaps the Bordermail has another front pager "Scooter Hoon Caught with Chicken Strips" Bock Bock Bock, sorry I don't Cary tyre cleaner for after dirt roads

     Dozer! Why couldn't you have just taken it for the gentle dig from friends that it was intended to be?

    Re: Nolan N42 -- good helmet?

    Brendon has a thing about checking out people's chicken strips!

    We get out the back of the workshop, and nearly everytime there will be a look over whose bike is there!  It just shows riding style.  Like Brendon has looked at mine, and said "You are doing well, just by looking at these, but you can improve on one side or the other" kind of thing.

    It was not a insult, it was a HQ thing that we have..... "Hey your chicken strips are good lookin"  It is a guide of how you improve as a rider though.  But also not everyone wants to go thru twisties, or has those kinds of roads near them etc.

    It was taken as fun ScootaNut. Seems like you're often busting in to try to solve problems that dont need solving. It's all a load of fun ScootaNut, and I'm sure Dak knows me enough to do the high five to get a reaction off Dozer and have a giggle. I'm not offended that I'm the but of your joke, hell, I take the piss outta myself all the time. I'll be wary to post any photos of chicken fillets (I'm still giggling Dak, very cute Big Smile).

    OK, off to clean off the chicken strips on the GT, and polish the Turkey gobbler.

    Peace... Out. Yes

     I think part of the problem Doze is that I've seen a few too many of your hissyfits in the past & it's a little difficult knowing what's a real hissyfit & what's you winding us up when you don't indicate that you're joking with a smilie
