Exactly



Dragons


D, you're a fcuking aesthete/ ponce like me- mine has a famous dragon on it,FFS, out of fcuking ART. You can't possibly say its not AWESOME.

although, admittedly the dragon isn't in the wave picture, but wev.



...I don't know how to begin this...Look, I'll just be honest. First off, I quite like yours nervy. But...and this is the problem for me, they called it the 'Oriental'. I can't get on with that. If they'd called it 'The Hokusai' or even if it was called 'Oriental by Hokusai, for Arai' I could have loved it and would have enjoyed telling other bikers at meets all about Hokusai's more famous works. But they didn't and I can't.

Edited to add a 'secondly'...

Secondly, something else.


invite D to 'meets'.

Let's just check the rules here

<checks rules>

Is it plain black?

<plain black? plain blaaaack? doesn't appear to be plain black. no definitely not plain black>

Does it feature a dragon?

<dragon? draaagon? yep! there it is! clear as day, a dragon, right there on the top. definitely a dragon>

Well I enjoyed the food and the company was delightful but the dragon helmet really let the evening down some I'm awarding a 3

602. Comfy and it worked before so I'm convinced. Seems noisy though, based on no comparisons with anything else.


It is noisy as fcuk, yes. I refuse to wear ear plugs though as I fear it will affect my hearing and I don't like 2m's shit lid.



Is it really? I have spent my life up until now assuming all helmets are like that. I'll be upset if I have an especially noisy one because [i]in my line of work, I need my hearing to be at 100%, all the time. That's why I use earplugs when riding[i].


Something something about hearing the police coming something something

Just regarding the OP, that helmet looks shit. Not as bad as Dragons on helmets but shit nevertheless.

Nothing says understated class like a tribal tatto in the approximate area of your face.

Did you pay the fully-reassuring £599 RRP or the slightly edgy £399 in a sale?
