It looks like it fits most helmets

Cool idea. But you'd better stock up on those expensive batteries...

I think it is a good idea, however I live where there is 200+ days of sunshine and when it does rain, it is for less than 10 minutes most of the time. The battery would be dead before I needed to use it. Add to that the fact that the screen on the bike causes the rain to go up and over, I just see no need for me to have one.

Now, if I lived in Seattle and rode a sport bike or other naked bike, this would be a life saver.

Washington state? or Washington DC? Whichever, we all need to move there! Apart from the cold of course, in both.

For what it's worth and if I may be so bold? The current rebuild of the `80, `81, `82 & `83 GL1100STDASPENSTATE can be followed on classicgoldwings.com in a thread called "The plan is to turn 140,000 into 50,000."
