    I know for a fact they suck in deep snow! It took about eight of us to help get his bike off the ice and back up to the road.

    That was wunna the best track layouts I did. I was never able to recreate it, but I came close again once. The one I did last year was similar but it was more spread out and made for higher speeds. Not sure I'm gonna have at it this year, but I say that every year and still end up with one.

    The best stuff out there IMO. Expensive to pony up the first time, but so worth it if you want to ride in complete comfort down into freezing temps. I'd recommend the dual controller, base layer and gloves at a minimum. Socks are great as well.

    Use coupon "advforum". IIRC it's 20% off everything on the site, and usable infinitely.
    Well shit, think I might've just found Sylwia's Christmas present(s).

    Thanks for the tip!

    If you're lookin for a different street/dirt lid that won't break the bank, I just got myself and Sylwia a pair of Bell MX9 Adventure helmets... Turns out a bunch of our friends have the same lid and former NESR member Jro made a review video on it a while back. We're digging em so far.

    I rode my V-strom to a trade show at Center of NH in Manchester one year, about a 55 mile ride one way, at the end of the day/evening I put all my gear on in the parking garage, it's pouring rain as I leave, I get on the highway , almost no traffic, and what was there (I-93 & I-293) I was passing, only going 35mph WTF! then as I turn in a northerly direction, I understand why, the rain and sleet is freezing to my face shield and I can't see, I pull over put my kickstand down and get off to adjust my windscreen, I fell flat on my face it was so slippery. I adjusted my windscreen and faceshield in a way that deflects all the precip. and I was on my way again, slow, but on my way, and faster than any other traffic, onto 101 east, precip turned to snow by the time I was passing thru Candia. When I got off in Epping, already 5 inches , on 125, the southbound side was plowed, northbound side wasn't, I rode the left side if the road, passing thru Barrington, I passed a scene with 7 cars in the ditch, 3 police cruisers, and a couple tow trucks, when I pulled into my driveway in Farmington 7" snow, about the max depth before my belly pan starts dragging. The trip that normally takes an hour, only took an hour and 20 minutes

    riding in snow is not as hard as you would think, keep your feet on pegs, using them as outriggers is asking for trouble

    a week later, I rode to a Land Surveyors meeting in Keene, yup, freezing rain all the way back, at night, 2 hours away.....took me 2Ĺ hours

    I've been rocking my MX9 adventure since 2015 (might be time for a new one!). It's my go-to for commuting or weeklong Mexico dual sporting. I got the photochromic shield as well. I only wish it had speaker pockets, while my Sena speakers fit in comfortably, they sometimes fall out when I remove the helmet -- maybe I need better velcro fasteners?

    I also have a Bell MX9 Adventure (MIPS version)
    Not a huge fan of the transitions shield though, I much prefer the drop-down sunvisor on my Shoei GT-Air.

    Yeah, it's not great if you're going in/out of trees with lots of sun shade. But for street use and desert use the transitions works well esp if you ride all day into the night... or ride to work in the daylight and home at night.

    Good to know... The transitions shield kinda piqued my interest but between the price & hearing your experiences, I'll def pass.

    I'm not sure I'll even use the shield all that often.

    I also use the MX-9 ADV mips; it has speaker pockets.

    I use goggles with it for dirt bike rides; visor closes over it.

    I still just use a street bike helmet for actual pavement rides. More aerodynamic and quieter

    It’s more that it doesn’t really get dark enough to be effective like a pair of sunglasses, and if you have the peak visor on, it blocks a lot of the sun from transitioning the upper part. It works better with the peak visor off. I’ve never used it with goggles though, I imagine that there wouldn’t be room for a drop-down sun visor if you’re using goggles.

    In the summer with my Shoei, I am usually riding with the main shield up and the drop down sunvisor down for more airflow.
