Can you guys imagine how awesome that has to feel being a rider of that caliber and just tell crew - "I want this different, that, and this..." Man, that has to take a looooottt of skills if you think about it. I mean, shit, if I have one less psi in my tires I wouldn't even fooking now :lol He is probalbly like :" The tires are .74856 psi off.." :lol

:iamwithst

It sounds great....I would still have to give the advantage to the Honda. He is a great rider but in the end it will come down to what the machine is capable of. Mladin is a great example of that:D

Wow! Love that multi-upshift wheelie down the straight. I have to wonder though how he doesn't get headaches with a helmet so tight. Did you see how hard he had to push that thing on? And how he had to readjust his ears. Anyone else like their helmet that tight? I wonder if it reduces vibration (and hence blurred vision) at high speed?

At the track, I learned that the pros wear their lids VERY tightly. In the past, I've ordered XL's, then Large...I'm going to try an Arai Medium...painful at first I'm sure, but it's rewarding (after break in) at 120 and your lid doesn't move at all.

Its not a one-off Termi, but it is MotoGP style and available for 02-03 R1's now from Harris, distributed by forum sponsor EMA :thumbup

Haven't been able to find if the Harris GP is rated at the current 130db MotoGP limit thou :(

:confused: Looks good,but not as good as the Gp ones.

In regards to the helmet's being sooo tight,since doing trackdays(and going 280kmh+),Ive noticed that my lid comes quite roomy after about 200kmh:no By the time Im hitting 280,the lower part of my helmet(where say your nose is)is literally pressed againt the helmet.

Do you guys have a regular helmet(firm fitting)which you wear for recreational/everyday use..and then a tiiight helmet(extra tight)for trackdays/races etc etc??? Just curious,as I feel I should have another helmet thats alot tighter when doing trackdays.

Any feedback would be great.

When I bought my Arai, I thought it was too tight, but I kept it and found it was too loose. At the track, top speed, the helmet was digging into my upper lip and smashed my nose.

If you can squeeze it on your head, it's not too tight.:fact
