    Deads: 5x110 up in 20sx5 to 1x200kg

     

    Bench: Warmup 8x50 3x8x60kg no wrist wrap for bad wrist this time, gotta take the training wheels off.

    Will not touch any lid under about $500 ... including HJC or any other of the cheapies! What price do you want to put on your brain?

     

    My Rjays SP2 $350 protected my head just fine in my crash, full roll around scuffage and a long drag across the face. See pic. was comfy, relatively quiet and not too heavy.

     

    I dont believe the '$100 helmet = $100 head' argument but you get more of other things from more expensive helmets, more comfort, more noise dampening, more features, more artsy designs to choose from etc etc.

     

    Dont get me wrong, I would have an $1100 Shoei over a $100 THH but at the end of the day, they both conform to the standard.

  4. Dont listen to the complainers mate, theyre just jealous they only had clapped out CBRs and ZZRs to ride when they were learning. :rolleyes:

     

    The new EFI Hyos are a great bit of kit for the cash and the 250 will depreciate A LOT less then a 650. Best of luck with it. :thumb:

  8. ^^^ over rated. This is a direct quote from a mate/former boss who owns one.

     

    It ran real sweet in the minutes before I ran out of fuel in the Snowy Mountains.. oh and that time the rear end fell off. It was running sweet then too! It was also running sweet the day that the fuel was pouring out of the tank into the bottom fairing but sadly I didn’t notice the sweetness as I was dead scared I would catch on fire. So it has been as good as motorcycling gets, but value for time on bike my old R1 was better  Even the 1098 was better… actually my wife’s old clapped out ZZr250 was better.


  9. not sure what your budget is or if you want learner legal but this bad boy is learner legal in QLD at least (of all places :wtf1: )
