Default I bought a new half helmet

Hi

I have been riding with an Arai full face helmet until now and most of the time this is OK. But even if I live in Norway we do get some warm summer days so I have been thinking about getting a second helmet. I found one a couple of months back and I sent the picture to my wife and she was kind enough to buy it for me for my upcoming birthday And the timing could not have been better. All of a sudden we have gotten warm weather here so I have been able to test it out and it is great to feel the wind in the face. I have to admit that I feel naked when I'm wearing it since I'm used to the full face helmet

The helmet feels good, it is great that you can zip of the cover on the sides to make it a half helmet. There should have been a patch of soft material to have under the chin by the way as the strap has a tendency to dig in a little bit. But I guess I can make something myself to fix that

Regards
Gard
