Re: Helmet for K1200LT
I am not saying that Surfman is wrong ( don´t think I dare ! ), and yes, I have heard of the occasional complaint about the System V leaking, but I had a System IV for 8 years without a problem, now have a System V for going on 3 years without a problem and my wife has a System IV for 4 years now, also without a problem.
Do I think the V is better than the IV ?. No, not really. The IV was and is a great helmet.
The only thing is that they are slightly noiser than a normal full faced helmet due to their inherent design, something which the System VI has apparently solved.
As I always use earplugs anyway, for me it isn´t a factor to take into account.
