Which helmet?

Looking at getting a new helmet to go with my F3. Just after your thoughts or any other helmet designs. Both are the AGV Corsa :- Guy Martins replica helmet and the Racetrack helmet.

If you llike the Corsa why not get this one? Love the fact that there are no AGV logo's.

I love this helmet,but as far as I'm aware it hasn't been tested to Australian Standards, so i'd get fined by the police if I get pulled over for an non compliant helmet...shame

So funny this one, like we have a helmet testing facility in Australia, another great money grabbing venture by our Government Departments. I've not heard of guys getting pulled up for this in WA though ?

Not sure about this one either. If the AGV Corsa is ok in your jurisdiction what difference does it make if its got an MV graphic on it or not?

It's not about the MV badge, it's about the lack of Australian Standards badge/sticker mate. https://www.google.com.au/search?q=a...w=1536&bih=713

Some smart arse figured out that we are importing helmets from the USA etc for a lot less than what the local dealers where selling the same helmet to us for.

So all "Officially" imported helmets get an Australian Standards Sticker, saying/meaning they where tested to Australian Standards by the Manufacturer, all it really means as that someone (Importer) paid import duties on it.

There is no difference between what you buy or what I buy though.

Just last year a guy in Victoria (I think) took this to Court after getting fined, and he won the case as there is actually no real "Australian Standard" for helmet testing, instead we require Snell or Dot testing and call it good enough.

Even a dark visor, what a fuckin joke.
Hey Sharly, you popping in on the 20th for the big test ride day, I'd love to see the bike mate.
