Sorry. I just bought a full face helmet last night. Figured it would keep my chin from freezing. Didn't help at all. May actually be worse. It was 28 degrees this morning when I went to work. Chin & hands got cold. Need heated grips.
Good luck on selling it.
1) I simply don't know if a helmet will fit me until I try it on. (I'll hafta ask Jason if I can try his Davida on and go from there)
2) I soooo lust after a Davida Classic, but not only am I reluctant to pay so much for a novelty helmet (albeit of the HIGHEST quality), I also have an intense fear of riding without something covering my entire face/chin.
I'll go look in the classifieds and see what size, color, price etc. But there may be nothing out there MORE COOL than wearing a Davida on a Bonnie. I'm almost sure it's been spoken for already though.
The freeze factor is a big part of why I want to sell the Davida. I ordered the sucker in July when it was in the 90s. The lid arrived when temps had dropped to the 40s. While I was waiting for the Davida, I bought a Shoei TZR. (Not too retro looking, but I bought black, slapped some stickers over the "Shoei" logos, and put a checkered racing stripe down the middle. Looks pretty stinkin' good, IMHO.) It was below freezing when I rode in to the office yesterday and today, and the Shoei keeps my face WAY WARMER than the half-helmet I'd been wearing. The only part that gets cold is my chin, but I grew a goatee, which helped with that problem.
Pat, the helmet's still available, and in my considered opinion, you'd look stunning in it. :hihi:
