I’ve taken ALOT of flak from chopper people about my Pro Full Face Helmet stance. Here’s another reason I feel that way. Here’s my buddy Justin at @iconmotosports with their helmet showing percentages of where your head hits the pavement. Want to keep your face? Wear a full face helmet. Coz it’s not if you crash it’s when. Unless you just stand on the sidewalk… #goodpeople #respect @icon1000 #ifyoudontlikeitidontcare
Had someone tell me once that an open face helmet is safer than a full face helmet because the chin protection on a full face helmet often got caught on something and it snapped your head back and therefore snapping ones neck.
That might be true but the logic is stupid. If you were wearing an open face helmet then it would be your jaw that would be ripped off your face if it hadn’t already been ground off.
If open face helmets were safer then motorcycle racers would wear them.
I’m really liking the use of colours in this build. Whether you like it or not, the builder has put a lot of thought into getting the lines spot on, balancing the maroon front and rear, the wheels, petrol cap etc.
Ducati’s Monster has been roaming the road for two decades, but the naked Italian bike wasn’t always as menacing as its name might suggest. While early variants linked the fairing-free, exposed-frame design to its super-bike siblings, the second-gen model sported a lighter body and a milder 100-hp engine. That was Ducati’s most powerful air-cooled twin to date, but still a mellow mill compared to its fully faired counterparts.
Saw the tank mold today when I took the #dualsport #motorcycle down to @IMS. Molds looked really good. Next steps by IMS: mold finishing touches then molding of the 1st plastic tank prototype. (at IMS Products, Riverside, CA)
