since I don't really need another bike, I'm gonna wait till I find exactly what I want. A Honda V65/V45 Magna (1983 - 1986 models):

Thats like a vulcan (my moms bike).

I dunno but i have a hard time going the speed limit on any bike.


WOT is more than just a throttle position, it's a LIFESTYLE

Not a big fan of the helmet... makes me want to remove the AGV logo and write MAVERICK or GOOSE or ICEMAN on it... looks like the helmet the MIG 28 pilots were wearing in Top Gun.....

I think it looks cool, just not sure if I would look cool wearing it. The other option was a german style half helmet:


then I would have to get a skull bandana and rock that with a pair of sunglasses.

I would still feel nake without the full face protection though. I'm not even sure if I would get a half.

I wouldn't. You don't fall on the top of your head. The sides and chin get most of the damage. Your Icon already has skulls and sh*t (in your avatar). Just use that.

I fully concur. Just not worth the risk.
