LOOKING FOR THE IDEAL RETRO JET HELMET

Always the same. The winter term here in Austria lasts too long. Much too long. It feels like I've seen every bike related YouTube video twice. So, what to do now? Buying my new motorcycle is still two weeks away. Maybe time for some accessory shopping.

For me it is too soon to look for stuff like smaller indicators or mirrors. Or anything else mounted on the bike. So for now - a new helmet needs to be found. Since the bike, for which I already paid a deposit, is a classic Moto Guzzi, I am looking for a jet helmet with vintage design.

After some investigation there are only three different helmets left. A DMD Vintage, a Bell Custom 500 and Biltwell Bonanza. Since the Guzzi is all black - the helmet should also be black. Trying all of them, the Biltwell feels the most comfortable to me. The interior appears to be of high quality and there is no pressure anywhere to my head.

Find a helmet - check. But there is still a visor to be found. Since the design is important to me - I choose a tinted bubble visor also from Biltwell.

After having a first ride with a borrowed Harley 1200 Sportster, the very good first impression approves. Riding with 120 km/h is no problem - the helmet fits and the visor doesn’t move. I’m sure - I found the ideal helmet for me and my future Guzzi V7.

The helmet is available from 120 to 150 Euros, depending on color and edition. The visor costs about 40 Euros but is definitely worth it. Price to value: Excellent.

The density of people is diminishing and we are passing through a village where a white person has never been seen before, at least according to the owner of the restaurant where we take our lunch...

KAWASAKI H2 SX – QUICKLY AT FULL BLAST

Published by MOTORRADMAGAZIN - Clemens Kopecky at February 19, 2018 in Reviews
A motorcycle is only fast enough when you are standing in front of it and are afraid to get on. I personally am sincerely convinced of that. Because in addition to many practical, clever arguments, by means of which one tries to be convincing in a conversation with critics of the motorized two-wheeler, one particular property certainly makes motorcycles incredibly desirable to me: the sheer unreasonableness of their existence.

HONDA GOLD WING 2018 REVIEW – ON SHINY WINGS

Published by MOTORRADMAGAZIN at January 26, 2018 in Reviews
The Honda developers were not to be envied in the past. They built the most comfortable motorbike of all time and won many supporters - but also earned slander. The critics said, the Wing wasn’t a motorbike and instead of driving that, you could go by car. But most of that criticism came from bikers, who never sat on a Gold Wing before...
