Osbe Tornado: What a cool lid!

From the time I first spotted this chap, I have wanted one. This chap used to own an ex-military, genuine fighter aircraft helmet, which he would happily wear on his battered old Chetak and ride around. The silver helmet, with the full, dark visor drove me insane with jealousy. And while I made feeble attempts at getting one, I never actually managed to mooch one.

But look, yesterday, I spotted the Osbe (an Italian helmet brand) Tornado, (look under demi-face) which is perfect. Okay, time to start collecting money again...

If my opinion of helmets would change, it probably be with this one. Providing it doesnt restrict my view and cause me blind spots and doesnt contrast in heat intake.

looks cool alright.....but the problem is it'll leave you chin-less in an event of a crash....and that is totally uncool!!
