Got a new Lid! HJC RPHA 70 ST Barius
on: January 09, 2020, 10:43:31 PM
I picked up a new lid over the last weekend while I was attending the IMS in Dallas. I picked the helmet up at my favorite dealership Plano Kawasaki Suzuki. They had the helmet and made sure the deal was a good one.

I have always liked HJC helmets and the RPHA line is supposed to be very good. I will do a review after a few rides with the new helmet. Stay tuned.

I have the same helmet, different design though.  I love it, and Iíve found it to be very quiet.  Hopefully youíll have as good of an experience with yours as I have.

I'm chuckling here Jerry, as I saw that helmet 'featured' on your bike show video, and wondered if it might be an option.........a nice matching colour scheme for Orca    :028:   

So its "bye bye" to the IOM helmet  :039:

I've always read/heard lots of praise for the HJC RPHA helmets.  I'd love to try one on to compare against my Shoei, but the only HJCs anyone stocks here are the cheaper ones.

Yeah it is time to retire the IOM. I loved it but it was three years old. I needed a change. The new Helmet is lighter and looks great with the color of the versys.
