HJC or KBC? - August 24, 2008, 02:17 PM

I've had several HJC's. I've been reasonably happy with them. One of the local shops was suggesting KBC. They didn't have the new HJC FS15, for me to compare. I didn't like the HJC FS-10, but it looks like the FS-15 isn't doing the inside sun shade. The prices of both HJC's & KBC's top of the line, seem to be the same.
Any preference?

Shoei!! I found a tz-r on ebay for $240 shipped. I had a Scorpion before this Shoei, and the Scorpion was definitely bigger and heavier in size. Not sure what your budget is, but you can get a new Shoei TZ-R for around $240 shipped (last year's or closed-out designs).

I wouldnt trade my arai haga for anything.........dont pinch pennies on something that keeps yor face attached


When I came to, the general back-alley ambience of the suite was so rotten, so incredibly foul. How long had I been lying there? All these signs of violence. What had happened? There was evidence in this room of excessive consumption of almost every type of drug known to civilized man since 1544 AD. What kind of addict would need all these coconut husks and crushed honeydew rinds? Would the presence of junkies account for all these uneaten french fries? These puddles of glazed ketchup on the bureau? Maybe so. But then why all this booze? And these crude pornographic photos smeared with mustard that had dried to a hard yellow crust? These were not the hoofprints of your average God-fearing junky. It was too savage. Too aggressive.
