    DOH!
    Better stop wearing my Kangol then.
    helmets normally have a lifespan of 5 years, of course if you drop it onto a hard surface like the road or pavement it must be replaced immediately.

    Doesn't look like it. Maybe your post was past to the moderator. It happens from time to time, sometimes for no apparent reason.

    My last helmet was a plain, Matt black half face lid. Did sterling service for about 15yrs. It was familiar, comfortable and nowt wrong with till I dropped it. I'm hope my current helmet lasts as long.

    Been wearing a full face on the Sporty this winter. Today was 10C so put on my open face with shades for first time since getting the bike. The pipes are quite loud now but as soon as I changed lids, the valve rattle annoyed me. Put in ear plugs and all I can hear is the exhaust - that'll do me!

    I'm the opposite. I like to hear what my bike is doing. The Iron is more organic than my previous jap bikes, it sounds different depending on weather, air temp, moisture etc. As I've only worn a full face on a handful of occasions in the last 36yrs, a half face lid is what I'm used to so the extra noise on the bike is something I kinda like.
