Because in the real world helmets cost 2-3 times as much. Also these guys have good return policy. Even if I lose on postage, it's still way waaay cheaper than any full-face helmet with SA2005 or equivalent in Finland.

If you haven't tried any on yet, specifically the one you want to buy, do it now. Helmets are likes shoes- each company's product vary in sizes, I've tried on several from different manufacturers and found I had to go up or down a size.

These aren't sold anywhere but on the net, so I have to rely on measures. Anyway, this is not the issue. I have decided on the helmet, I just need to solve delivery issues :)

I hope everyone will wear a name tag, because I am absolutely terrible with connecting names (or nicknames in this case) to faces.

I am bringing 486 adhesive labels to the ring, and a black marker....

Not that I think anyone would forget who I am, once they saw me...

Unfortunately the many coloured vinyl will come off HMS Saab, but instead I'm thinking some racing stripes will be able to go on. I still have plenty of vinyl, too, so watch out in case you like your cars to remain one colour...

Note to self - increase size of radar bubble panned by Failbiza's Alarmsystem so hood & trunk are covered too.

The alarmsensor sits highly visible behind handbrake to tell people "FUCK OFF MY CAR" - got broken into 2 times before I installed it :/

It hasn't been broken in since because: a) thieves are scared by the sound of your alarm, b) they can't be bothered because of the flashing LED? Since I'm pretty sure the answer is b - what is the point in increasing sensitivity and annoying every human being in 100m radius?

Seeing as one suspects the alarm notification will be in German and I therefore won't understand it (being British and ignorant, of course). Therefore merely the whole campsite who was asleep will be awoken, not affecting me due to the fact I was already awake.

Or I could just stick it on while you're not looking. :lol:

I'm back from vacation, time to really start preparing for the trip!
We'll be there on Saturday morning hopefully. A detour through Italy (Stelvio etc.) is becoming an option,
so there's a possibility that we leave on Sunday morning. Monday is a holiday here so yaay for us :D

Ice, do you have a map of your route, we need the quickest way there. I'll probably be buying a vignette anyway so that will shorten the trip a bit at least.
