Iíve ridden on a stock seat, on a russell, on a Laam, and on a Sargent. The stock was bad for distance. The comfort was better. But not a lot better. The Sargent was simply bad. Even for a run to the...

Even though I rotate them, I rarely had a primary helmet that was still my primary at 5 years. They get a lot of riding time. For a long time, Nolan modulars were my go-to helmets. I’d always buy...

I have had both the RT and the FJR. The RT provided better wind protection, and had more low end torque. The FJR has nothing approaching the quiet pocket of the RT.
