Had my Shoei lid only 4 mths now, always kept it spotless, regularly cleaning that gloss black exterior and it's irridium visor. After work .. went through the usual steps. (1) Secure Tailbag (2) Place gloves on seat (3) Place Helmet on TailBag (4) Turn handlebars to straight ahead position, ignition, select neutral, start bike and allow it to warm before I put my lid and gloves on. Well somewhere inbetween turning the bars and turning ignition on.. I hear a "THUD" My shoei fell off the tailbag onto the concrete. Helmet & visor are both scratched and I am pissed off. How damn stupid can ya get. I know.. I know.. its ONLY a scratched helmet FFS . STOP whining ! It aint like I had an off and 'really' did some serious damage. But its not the helmet I'm pissed off about, its MY stupidity!!! :evil: Wondering what everyone else does. Do You have a 'particular' way You get ready to mount???
