BMW System 5 Comparo

  1. :?:
    has anyone here gone to a BMW System 5 flip-up helmet after using a cheaper equivilant, ie, Nolan 102, HJC Symax, etc?

  2. No - sorry, but would be interested in your thoughts if you have any. Looking at the F800ST as my next bike, and will be in the market for a new lid at the same time. The System 5 is probably overkill for my limited needs though...
  3. I bought one today to replace my lazer Century flip-up, after a 120km ride home with it this arvo I can tell you,

    - It's quiet
    - But you're still better off wearing ear plugs
    - They're Expensive
    - Visibility is excellent, much better view to the sides
    - I can't wear my ( quite large ) sunglasses with this lid so I'll buy a tinted visor.
    - Money well spent ( I think?)
