It wasn't that great in clarity-had some distortion like a cheap pair of sunglasses might
Weird, I never had such a problem with Scorpion shields. I wonder if you had a defective one?

Re: pin lock face sheilds

It kind of boggles my mind that after many years of existence the the helmet manufacturers are suddenly all crazy for Pinlock. Back around 2007-ish I got a Scorpion helmet that had an anti-fog coating on its faceshield and it really worked well and lasted about three years. Why no other player in th...

That's a shame. My first bike was a K100, and those earlier Ks were wonderful. Usually the guys who thought they were appliances only thought so on principle, as they'd never actually ridden one. :mrgreen:

Re: LED headlight replacement for H4

I had my first hexhead for three years and I just reached three years with the current one last month. The only dealer service required between them was when the fuel-level sensor in the first one had to be replaced under warranty. The current one seems really healthy and the maintenance is super-ea...

Re: Wheel Recall ( Snowflake ) - The Definitive Truth

Have you met The Veg? How about Matt (the owner of the forum)? They are both in "North Georgia". I don't think we've met. I've only been in the Atlanta area for about 9 years. Wobbly, where so you live? I'm between Lawrenceville and Buford. It would be a pleasure to meet you sometime. Interesting t...
