BMW helmet version 6

Anyone have one that they could give me a pilot report on?

I am thinking about picking one up and wonder what the experience from others with this helmet are.

Re: BMW helmet version 6

We have two System 6 helmets and love them. Last year my wife needed to replace her helmet and we bought one for her. We went for a long weekend ride to Niagara and she liked it so much she insisted that we buy one for me as well. I find it quiet, the sunscreen works nice and it fits my odd shaped skull although after the first day I wasn't sure it was going to be a keeper but either it reshaped my head or the helmet's interior conformed to my head. Anyhow now I can wear it 10 hours straight and still be comfy. We also bought the BMW bluetooth setup and are mostly pleased with it but the music fidelity has a lot of room for improvement.

Over all I am pleased with the helmets, the fastening ratchet mechanism took a while to get use to especially when releasing it.

Thanks.
I just got an K1600 and intend to install the headset as well.

I am sure you will enjoy your bike, I'll be riding through Minnesota end of June on my way to Alberta. My wife is flying to Calgary and we will then spend 3 weeks in Alberta and BC.

Re: BMW helmet version 6

Picked up a System 6 EVO and the blue tooth headset last week. Also picked up my new K 1600 GTL yesterday.

Only issue is that we got 20" of snow here Thursday so. Had to TRAILER it home

Bare streets today so a test ride is in order then try to find out he to pair all the different devices (radio, navigator, cellphone)
