    Probably put my original post in the wrong place. Here's my new ride. More pictures will follow in the coming week

    No it's a Bell Bullitt. Drove through to Edinburgh from Glasgow this morning (trying to keep it under 3k rpm for 1st 50 miles) and the helmet was trying to lift off my head with the visor open it's pretty wide at the bottom. Also noisy as f*ck, need to get better earplugs obvs.

    Bikes looks good in the red. Re: helmet, looks the part with the bike, but if it's wide at the bottom, there's probably not a lot you can do to stop wind resistance issue. I have a half face lid with drop down visor, it doesnt suffer that problem at any speeds so far. Maybe need to change helmet.

    I'll keep it for non-motorway riding. I do love it, it's the nicest helmet I've had so far.

    My new Harley-D

    Had girlfriend on the back for the first time this afternoon. Omg was she uncomfortable, then we got stuck in traffic. Seat upgrade definitely needed. Regret cancelling sissy bar order now, I think that would have helped a bit.
    She decided to get the bus back to my flat from town rather than ride back with me.
