Crack in my helmet

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' at netrider.net.au started by Nick s1000r, Jul 2, 2015.

  1. i was bored after work today so i thought whats inside a helmet and how is it made.



    the helmet is agv gp pro cost me approx 560 when new and is 8yrs old and has been in a box for years.

    so i cracked out my bosch angle grinder and what you see is the after math.

  4. All you had to to was mention the word Bosch and I got it. Just tell me you didn't use the grinding disc but a good cutter. I have two (not Bosch unfortunately). One dedicated to grinding, and the other dedicated to cutting so I don't have to keep swapping discs.

  11. A gopro has no chance of breaking a helmet it's only attached with double sided tape and any impact will knock the camera off.

  13. God I wish there was a 'scaring me now' button... :shock:
    I think The HWP may pull you over if you gaffer that on back together
    I hope every one at home shifted a discrete distance away from you... Did any one happen to go "whhhhhhyyyy?"
    Remind me not to get between you and an angle grinder when you're bored....
