Back in 2004 I was at the peak of my crashing days, managing to fall off a motorcycle with alarming regularity. I just had to look at a motorcycle and I'd fall over.I picked up this Forcefield after putting a rather worrying dent in my Knox Stowaway having landed on a tree-stump....
I've been wearing this Shark Race-R Pro for 3 months now and clocked up over 2,000 miles on road and track. It's a quality lid right at the top of Shark's range. Its price and spec put it head to head with my Arai RX7-GP.The first thing you notice about it is how light it is; it'...
