Well, a couple of people PM'd me because they wanted to see whats left of my helmet..



Well, here what I have to say about Arai. This was a SIGNET GTR that was a month old. ITS COMEPLETELY worth the money. When I highsided off my bike it was at about 60-80mph I think. My head took a good impact. I barely even noticed that my helmet hit the ground, I had no headache and no concussion when I got up. I have a oval shaped head and it fit me perfectly. And YES - I will buy another one...

The other side is scratched up too but not as bad as this side...

Good to hear...

Haha… you’re the third person I know who highsided at 9 (including me). A buddy of mine did it on his RC51 a year before I did and I was baffled as to how he did it… Until I did.

For me it was hard into 7, harder into 8… Start spinning out of eight and pushed it too deep toward the apex (and very unnecessary) into 9. The back end slides out, hooks and next thing I’m looking at ground from above the bike.

There’s more to it than that (all the mistakes I made) but that’s it in general.
