Flight helmets on motorcycles!

Recommended Posts

So there I was - driving down the 401, passing a V-twin oil leak (Harley) and both driver and passenger are wearing old gentex helmets!! I know I''d hate to fall off my ride wearing my work lid. I wonder if it had been dark out if they would have been utilizing the NVG mount?


Some people have some funny ideas......

A few years ago, my good buddy, Gord Innis delivered a 206B to Edmonton and was about to get on the bus for Fort St. John when he spotted a motorcycle for sale that he just couldn''t live without. The salesman tried to sell him a helmet too, but clutched to his left hand was a Gentex SPH-4. He showed up in town a day later with the drop chord whipping in the wind.
