    I’ve only got 6k miles under my belt, but I’ve had enough bugs or debris hit my face shield that I’m not sure how you’d ride with an open face helmet. :notsure:
    Maybe I’m not hardcore enough. :anonymous::ballchain:

    Helmet wall art ftw.

    Surprisingly I have only owned 3 my entire life, which means thank God I never actually needed to use my street helmet because it probably should have been replaced years ago.

    Two of my favorite helmets in my collection are my dad’s old helmet from 70/80s with a deep orange metal flake and the other is a vintage helmet from the 60s that was originally for USN carrier deck personnel. It was originally white but a buddy painted it it red. Luckily I was able to save the Dept of Navy decal. I’ll post a picture later. @4x4Runner might get a kick out of it.

    Funny you should mention. I was wearing an open face when I had my accident in 2012. Instinctively from my training at the time I knew to tuck my chin as I fell. Afterwards I saw a gnarly scratch on the forehead if the helmet. I often think if I hadn’t tucked my chin, my nose/face would’ve hit the road.

    Here’s a pic I found that shows what the interior is (like a terry cloth material) and some of the discoloration (near my cheek) i’ve gotten on it from not being able to wash sweat out of it. Gross. Glad it’s just my head in there and no one else’s.

    I finished the first set of bags last night. That was probably one of the most difficult build sections I've ever done. The gearbox mechanism is crazy complex, good luck! Make sure you get those little orange wave discs lined up right. This one has 3 speeds plus neutral, the ducati had 2 plus neutral and the r1200gs was direct drive if I remember right.

    Thanks! I feel like I'm already missing pieces. Did you have a hard time accounting for all the pieces?

    Nope, mine were all there. Took a while to sort but there's a lot of very small similar looking pieces.

    You opened all like 3 of the "1" bags, yeah?

    Yeah, it just took me a little bit to get sorted. Once I got started, it's been smooth sailing. Making sure I double and triple check before going to the next step each time.

    Also, it seems like all these pieces were just arbitrarily thrown in different bags. lol

    I’m guessing in case of theft? I just saw this on YT:

    https://youtu.be/7o2CrMwGjOU

    he actually reviewed a gps tracker that is disguised as a generic relay but it required a cellular plan to operate. Had some cool features though.

    For that money you could just use an apple gps thing that all the you do kids are using these days.

    There’s this one too that Blockhead spoke highly of. Also had cool features.

    https://youtu.be/t0Z7pe9CNNA

    one thing to consider is that most thieves don’t steal bikes to keep, they steal them to strip. So unless you recover the bike immediately after being stolen, chances are you might not get it back in one price if at all.
