Arai Helmets - Jay Leno's Garage

I really like the motorcycle stuff that Jay Leno does. I think because he's a little more calm about things; there's no thumping soundtrack; he doesn't dress like an astronaut; he doesn't try to make himself any cooler than he is (which, of course, is what actually cool people do).

I thought this video was a good follow-up to the post I had about wearing gear, but also it features some interesting facts about helmets that contradict what I've always been told by the ATGATT contingent. The first is that if you set your helmet on your bike and it falls off, it's not necessarily ruined. The second is that painting your helmet doesn't necessarily ruin it, either. 


  1. The third is that covering it stickers will give it an extra layer of protection.

  2. The fourth is that something about Jay Leno just bugs me. /drinkboxery

    Apart from my irrational and irrelevant dislike of Leno, those were a couple interesting points. I kinda fast-forwarded my way through, but I didn't catch if Arai-guy mentioned that head shape also makes a difference when fitting a lid. My noggin is Shoei shaped, anything else hurts like a very hurty thing when I try it on.

    1. Yeah, my head is Schuberth-shaped.

  3. That was a very informative video. Thanks for sharing it.
