Re: Now it's the Clutch

you only need the clutch when pulling away from a stop or sitting in stop in gear... if you put pressure on the shift lever and lightly let off the gas then the bike will slip into gear pretty smooth. its just hard to downshift smoothly so should i just never stop for anything? :) full throttle GO!

Now it's the Clutch

Re: GR : Scorpion EXO 700 Helmet

finally got to wear my 700! my mini review: Comfortable fit! Indeed it does fit a little wider than the 400 but I liked it for the fact that, as some of you know with my "special needs noggin", only after almost 2 hours of riding (and as a passenger again unfortunately - sorry!) I had no i...

Re: Scorpion EXO 400 (small mention of 700)

i read an article which tested g forces transferred to the brain in helmets, that the less expensive exo 400 tested better than the exo 700. the funny thing is, an $80 helmet actually tested better than all helmets tested -- and they did test some high dollar, big name helmets. more money does not ...

Re: Scorpion EXO 400 (small mention of 700)

Scorpion EXO 400 (small mention of 700)

By popular demand and recommendation, I've been asked to write a little review on this helmet. I will do my best and try to generalize this in terms of my experience. Fit: I would say this helmet fit like the Arai Quantum-f if your head fit that. Among the Arai helmets, if I recall correctly from wh...
