    Does it count as a crash for the person who owns the bike (me) or the person who is touching it & nearly ends in the ER after head butting the mirror when it falls on top of him...?

    Sounds like alcohol is involved. Head butting does not usually occur without it!;-)

    Ok,

    We took my bike to a MOT test centre for its yearly test. As I haven't been riding it recently, due to riding the RVF's & CBR, I let the insurance lapse so I can get all the insurances under a single policy. This meant we had to take it to the centre so we put it 'into' his vehicle, - (its large) did the test - PASSED - zero issues, stuck it back in the car & traveled back to where I store the bike.
    Whilst the ties were being removed the bike rolled forward & S*****4x4 - (name changed to protect the innocent (LOLOLOLOLOL) decided to use his head it to stop it going further foward - OUCH.. The impact resulted in the mirror glass smashing & the mirror arm also broke !! All on his head - BIG OUCH...

    I have the RG protection kit so no other marks noticed - its inside a CAR with carpet, & it was laid down fairly gently (using head power "!" - not my first choice LOLOLOL)

    Now as I drove the bike in, I should have left it IN GEAR, but I hadn't finished undoing the ties from the suspension, it was preloaded, & I was in the process of removing these.. S******4x4 (name changed to protect the innocent) was removing the front wheel tie - so was under the bike...

    This resulted in a marked head - LOLOLOLOLOLOL - But at least other than the mirror the bikes fine... Yippee & more importantly I can now insure & tax it.

    Gave it a much needed bath and rode around until it was dark outside. Found a nice empty spot to take some night shots.

    What’s the cost?
    Looks to be a modular.
    Flip down shield inside?

    Not a modular, that’s the graphics that makes it look like one. I think it’s around the $150 mark. It’s a no frills entry level helmet, DOT certified only. I’d grab it as a spare, it’s the new HJC “Stormtrooper” helmet.

    I installed a tire pressure and temp monitor, all wireless. Been on 2 full day trips thru the texas hill country and absolutely love it being able to know the tire temp (and stickiness they are angel GTs). I bought it on amazon: CAREUD for motorcycle.
