    ScootaChic:

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

     

    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

    We were in no way trying to cause dramas etc.  It was Denni who noticed, and we thought we would just make a "Hey nice chicken strip" comment.  No offence or riding ability digs.  I mean hey, mine are slowly evening out, and I am getting the wear on the sides as well as the middle.  As you get a new bike, most of us take our time, to get used to it, and confidence needs to be built up, on how you can ride it.  I have just clicked over 3000kms since September on Armani, and the confidence, and riding style improves each day.  Dozer, send us an updated pic, let's see how they have improved, and how your training is helping Mrs Dozer.  If she was offended, please apologise, as it was not intended to offend her.  (Dozer yes maybe, but not the Mrs lol)  Every time Brendon looks at mine now, he will say something along the lines of ... getting better.. or it's starting to happen.  And it does.  I don't have the confidence to lay the scooter too far into corners.... personally I think that is generally a guy thing!  It is natural behaviour!  But some days you go thru a corner and you think (I was lower there than I usually am)

    But Dozer, your  scooter, we expect to see no chicken strips, but good even wear!

      Dozer no offence was intended.

    When I mentioned it to Brendon he suggested that I post it, he said you a wicked sense of humor and would see the funny side.

    I'm sorry if it was taken out of the context that it was posted.Embarrassed

    WAY:

    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.

     

    Hi WAY,

    I think the N42 helmet costs about $260, but I guess it depends where you buy one.

    G'day Way,

    I got mine from The Helmet Warehouse in Yagoona, NSW (Sydney). It was $199.95. I specifically went there because of this price i saw advertised on their website, being the lowest i'd spotted anywhere by about $25. http://thehelmetwarehouse.com.au/store.php?crn=229

    If you aren't in Sydney the do internet sales but I have no idea how much they charge for freight. I beleive they use couriers rather than Aus Post as heard guy talking in store whilst there.

    The have a sizing chart on their site as well which tells you what size you need for specific head circumferences in cm.

    Good luck shopping

    Hi Tony,

    What a bargain you found! I saw the price on the motorcycle accessories supermarket (mcas.com.au) is $260. I think I'll try that warehouse at Yagoona where you bought yours. Thanks for sharing that tip.

    Re: Nolan N42 -- good helmet?

    Go and try them on, and see what you think.  Once you know what size you need, then you can shop online if you find a bargain.  But just a warning, that the sizes differ from brand to brand, so you can't change brands and assume the size you and before will be right.  I have just gone from a Large RJays to a Small Shark!  I basically went and tried on everything I liked so I knew what I had to search for if I boguht online.  Had it had not fitted if I got one this way, I would not have been happy!

    Re: Nolan N42 -- good helmet?

    I agree with all comment on noise. It can be noisy at 60kph when riding into a strong headwind even with a windscreen . So I use earplugs. The big visor is a big plus but beware it is sharp and can graze your chin. I also have a Shoe full face but appreciated the view from the Nolan, the cool air through the Nolan and the visor when riding into the sun. And it fits as well as the Shoei. Highly recommended.

    Confused [*-)] Re: Nolan N42 -- good helmet?

    I have a different problem with this helmet, which I really like and want to get.

    My problem is I want it in white (no, I really, really do!Geeked), which is available overseas (see http://www.nolanhelmets.com/n42encom.htm ) but for some reason not in Australia (WHY?????????!). Crying

    If I order one from overseas, it won't have an AS approved label, and will be illegal, even though it would be identical to the approved one sold locally.

    Does anyone know how one could get a helmet bought outside Australia approved for use here? Confused

    There must be a way, after all most of the helmets worn here are made overseas. Especially when it is the same as one already given AS approval.

    Re: Nolan N42 -- good helmet?

    On a slight tangent, I just saw the coolest open face helmet (to me anyway) at LV.  I has a Tiaga leather covered shell, with a see through plastic and holds up the visor over it.  I loved it!  But before anyone ask how much it is, I am currently in Kuala Lumpur for the F1 and I doubt LV would bother going through the AS certification for wht would probably amount to 15 sale a year...
