Wow - good for you.

You need Pinlock visors to deal with the fogging.

I would strongly suggest FirstGear heated glove liners for your hands - better than heated grips.

Flat centres on tires ...part of the game on slab but in the cold no tire does well.

That's a good road trip.

Ah yes, that terrible sound of a helmet going cplonkk on the deck.... and those scratches on a new helmet!
Placing your helmet over a mirror arm will give it a longer life, and reduce those tearful moments :821:

I too have experienced the helmet jumping off the seat.  :230:  :012:  :138:

Now I hang the helmet on the passenger foot peg bracket.  Don't like putting it on the mirror, have seen one fall off there and its further to the ground!

I've lost helmets to the pull of gravity or being bumped off the seat.
I've had dogs pee on them while the helmet was on the ground next to the bike.
I've had the wind move them enough to fall off the handlebar.
Now, I put my helmet on the bars over the instruments leaning against the windshield and there's room to slip your gloves under it.. Never had a problem.

I heard a story a while ago about a guy who used this thing called a helmet lock....apparently, it was attached to the bike in the most sensible place, somewhere near the back :005:....

of course it could just be a rumour :008:

This is the sort of reckless mongering that leads to new-fangled innovations like self-canceling signals...  We need to put an end to this right away.  We're old, after all.

Absolutely right. Down with newfangeloids. Next thing we'll have brake systems that wont lock up even on slippery roads.
There ought be laws agin it!  :232:

I've heard about them also.
I have no need to lock my helmet. I do not consort with thieves or ladies of ill repute.

So exactly what do ladies of ill repute use a helmet for?
