Helmet - Ausralian Standard sticker
Hi, I wanted to know if the shipped helmet will have an approved Australian Standard stickers since I will be wearing here in Australia?
Part of the checkout process reminds you that as an international buyer, the DOT sticker does not meet Australian helmet standards. There is no way Revzilla could add AS stickers either, they are fitted by local importers and that is the reason we pay absurd prices for helmets (not to mention other stuff our local retail thieves rip us off for). My new Shoei from Revzilla arrived with a DOT and Snell 2010 sticker but sadly the DOT sticker 'fell off', I was devastated ;-)
My old Shoei was DOT only as well for the same reason, I was done last Xmas for speeding and the traffic cop couldn't have cared less about my hat. He was a reasonable guy and I knew I had done wrong...I reckon he was miffed he never got my actual speed around the corner as he could not line up his laser until he had cleared it and I was slowing for red light. 84 in a 60 that should be 100, better than the original 140+
Another pointer for me came up ages ago when APEC was in Sydney. We had 12 police bikes outside our building (escorts for everybody) and 7 of the 12 riders had DOT only helmets. On that note however, if you are caught riding with a DOT only helmet (and you are not a NSW police rider) you will receive the fine and points equivalent of not wearing a helmet at all! My Snell 2010 exceeds anything our mental midget legislators have ever looked at, makes sense to me (and the government fine revenues).
