Anyone had any experience of Stealth helmets? They have a sub 200 full carbon lid out that looks the part, just seems too good to be true / any good!

Hello Nismo, Cant say about the Stealth firm. But I bought a cheap and limited edition full carbon helmet and it was excellent, I was run down by a taxi skoda estate and it didnt survive but worked just fine.
With helmets though, as you probably know it really does help to be able to inspect them first hand. 200 is a fairly expensive hat still, though the ones I have ordered online were as expected, pretty good.
Stealth I think are US based helmets and have a pretty good rep, I think XLite are also good especially their CF helmets and are part of the massive Nolan group. I have a penchant for Shark, they also do a carbon skin helmet the Race R and are a year or so old now, can be found for great prices on the net. OGRI

Thanks Ogri. Was tempted by the stealth, sharks were also very good, very nice fit...... but...... the Suomy SR Sport won out in the end, and really pleased with it. Carbon (but painted so not visibly obvious), very light, a little noisy, but fantastic vents, by far the best on any lid that I have had - I even keep the chin piece in now as there is plenty of ventilation even with it in. Plus, I defected from Yamaha, and the Suomy does have very pretty Ducati logos on it big grin big grin big grin

Ohhh you`re one of those Ducati perverts eek
Yeah so am I. Got an injected 900 SSie factory satin black, black wheels. Its such a lovely machine, fairly simple to maintain too.
Your 848 is very pretty, watch out for those dealers though, right dodgy characters some of them. A well respected authorised Ducati independant is Neil at Cornerspeed, servicing only no sales, parts too, its where I get my stuff from, belts etc.
Have you got the Ducati Corse wallet, yeah so have I, there`s frig all in it lol. big grin Suomy nice lids, I thought AGV were the current supplier. They did a nice matt black Corse helmet.OGRI

Hello Nismo, I have not posted any pics so far, not sure how to. If it needs photobucket or similar, I`m not a member there and dont want them to have control of my info.
Does Stig allow Ducati porn here eek
Maybe you should ask him if you can set up an Exup Ducati subforum ninja
I`ll hold your coat. finger OGRI

Photobucket is ok, though that said, I only use it for here, so it just bike pics on mine! Well Stiggy hasn't deleted any of my pics (yet!) so might be ok. Forming a Ducati corner might be pushing it a bit though!!

Try using imgur.com. Since photobucket are playing Silly buggers wanting you to spend a load of dosh for the privilege to post photos. Well they can sod off. imgur is good but its a bit of a faff at first but gets easier as you get used to it. nod

Hi Nismo, I have never used a hosting pic site, I dont really have many pics anyway. But I have read of people losing all their info, sometimes their whole caboodle. I put an extra drive in my computer, I dont remember how many pics it can hold, its a huge number in many, many thousands.
The 848 is a powerful twin. But it must feel so light compared to your Exup.
The handling is a revelation, I know mine is, it is so easy to point and lean in, so sure footed/
Hey tell Stig, Ducati has just invented a new Exup, just like on the you tube vid. I`m not far from him, I may even hear the explosion. unibrow OGRI

Out with the little black book

I can hear ya. Don't worry I'm always around
laugh

It's YAMAHA EXUP btw but we don't mind other bikes. After all, there aren't many bikers who have just one bike so we cater for all

As for a corner for Ducati..... you're in the queue.... just in front of the H@#das laugh laugh
