Now why would I want to ruin such a good off road bike by puting street tires on it?

Which dirt helmet to you guys like? Favor a particular brand or vendor? Thanks

Arai VX-Moto, or if you are going to dual sport it, the Arai XD.

Here's mine:




If you get an XD, find the nose guard from a VX-pro, and use it on the XD.

sorry, Fly Racing Rat Rod in matte black. I can likely get you a good deal on one if you go that way.

I really need to start using a regular dirt helmet for the DR-Z. Wearing the Arai for playing in the dirt is a risky venture.
