New HJC Helmet
« on: May 26, 2016, 10:37:25 AM »
Ok so with some down time in the hospital room I'm catching up on my motorcycle magazines that I tend to fall behind on.  So I get to the "Gear Up" section in this months Cycle World and something caught my eye.  HJC has introduced a new helmet the CL-17 full face (at a 149.99 price point) with "Fresh new graphics" - Winter Camo!!! Well does this strike anyone else as counter intuitive when it comes to helmet graphics? Now I realize that I use to wear a black Arai but Camo? just seems very strange that someone would want to better blend into their surroundings while riding.  Just struck me odd.

Agreed to many times after a crash one of the vehicles says I never saw the motorcycle. That's why I purchased my bright yellow helmet and jacket.

I would rather have someone flip me off because of bright lighting than to have people look through me!
