Leaving work this afternoon, I got utterly soaked on the way home. This, annoying, but almost inevitable event led to one rather big conclusion. The pin lock insert for my HJC helmet is total and utter shite. I'm sure if questioned the manufacturer will say that it not the visor, its the fitting and you know what, I totally agree. This is because no matter what I do, the f-ing thing has never fitted properly despite all my best efforts. The ones on the Shoei and the Arai helmets worked fine as you could actually adjust the fitting. The fitting adjustment on the HJC? absolutely worthless! This is really annoying as the helmet itself is pretty good as I explained in 'My kit', not perfect, but still pretty good. As this is my daily lid, I'm going to need to invest in some anti-misting spray and drop the pin lock entirely.
