Just got my new LID!!!

okay, I got my new lid last week, but I finally got to ride with it on yesterday. Thanks to Patrick and his crew at Motorcycles Unlimited, I love it. Price was a steal. Here's my input on Suomy.

the suomy does run a bit small. The helmet I got is an XL, but it feels like a medium/large. The shield doesn't fog much when fully closed and stopped at a light . Helmet stays pretty quiet, not too much wind noise. it ventilates very well. all around, i'd give it up. i still like arai better .

here she is.....sittin there all bright and pretty waitin for me to stick my head in. yep, she's a alright .

^^^ yeah, definately get with patrick and see what kinda prices he can give ya. but make sure you try on the helmet first to get a correct size. i was suprised on how much a difference of size they were compared to other brands.

Nice lid Tony!
I sure wish Suomy came out with that new black/silver Neil Hodgson 5 months ago before I bought my black/silver Steve Martin replica. :BangHead:

very nice looking... you can never go wrong with any type of gambling scene.. there is a bike at Grand Prix that would go well with that lid..

I have had my Goorbergh Spec 1R helmet for almost a year and I still love it and I get lots of compliments on it. I purchased my on line and got the shipping for free. I can guarantee I got it cheaper than what Motorcycles Unlimited sold it to you for. I only paid $399 for it and I got a free Iridium face shield with the helmet.
