It could use a little more lime green though. :D Would be perfect if I was a British ex-patriot living in Brazil.

I like hi-vis.

You have me trumped there on all counts. Hadn't thought of Australia.

Nice lid! It compliments your blue C.

I ordered a couple new ones for myself. I cannot use the helmet I crashed last September in (the truck U-turn incident), so I've been using a combination of my high wavelength white and green helmet with a tinted visor. The problem though is I tend to stay on the bike for hours, which usually puts me riding home in the dark. The tinted visor makes it increasingly difficult to see objects on the road at night, if there are any I need to avoid. :shock: My primary helmet is high wavelength lime green, but it's getting up there in age and looks it.

The new ones, both EXO-520s, have built-in tinted visors, built-in communication upgrade features and aren't so low visibility that I'd have a complex while riding. I'll upload some pics when they arrive.

Leathers have been a real bear too. I don't want black or black and red (or orange or blue), all low wavelength colors. I want cagers to be able to see me when it's dark or low light, FFS! The Kawasaki lime green or green suits are mostly made in Pakistan or sold through distributors in other countries. So still looking. I need to replace my old set too. Some of the leather is cracking and it looks its age too.

Riding this weekend should include a review or two. ;)

I got snapped going to squires on Sunday.

I’m a Yorkshireman so too tight to pay for the pic. Screenshot. 😂

Meh, get a friend to snap a similar full resolution picture, only in direct sunlight. You'll have a free picture with more vibrant colors. Plus then you'll have the excuse you already have several like the ones they taken, but in better light. ;)
