Re: Open face helmet
I bought a highly rated modular, Caberg from a dealer in Italy. It doe NOT have DOT sticker which if fine with me since helmets are not manditory in AZ.
I looked hard at the Schuberth 3 to replace my Schuberth 1. I took what I didn't spend on the Schuberth and put it towards other safety gear.
I never ride with the modular part up; at stop lights with 100+F temps it helps a lot. With the Caberg I can ride the interstae with the face shield half way up, it covers my eyes and nose, and the LT's lowered windshield covers below my eyes.
My Schuberth would not keep the face shield open, so I used to take it off until it rained or temps dropped.
