You should check the local Harley Store. They may have some tube bandanas (if you are not averse to going near a Harley that is) :-)

Just picked up the AGV K3 SV 5-Continents in S size. Always wanted one and a visit to Bangkok sealed the opportunity for me. Just for info, this is where i picked it up from. http://www.bkkspeed.com/

Had ordered a KAVACi Indianapolis Black Napa Leather Riding jacket in Black at the IBW - http://www.amazon.in/KAVACi-Indianap...5735933&sr=1-1 . Got a fantastic deal price of 7k at IBW for it (MRP 13k).

It is quite well designed and comfortable and seems like built to last a lifetime.

Thats the advantage of these tubes. can be worn in umpteen different ways and they aren't too choking etc.

But 150?? I don't know how good/bad these are.

They are made it china, hence the price. I tried one (bought 4) on last night and it was pretty nice. Tom i shall wear it for a ride to get the actual feel on the highway. The fit and finish is the same as the link provided by Dodge_Viper, saw it at a store from the link but they had a trial piece only. That one costs Rs 899 a piece.

Hey Speedy, the one that Kau had put up was my own helmet if you check the mobile number mentioned in the ad. I sold that one (regular K3) already. This one is the newly launched K3 SV and i love it. Long story, will let you know when we chat. Lets ride together soon.

I bought a K4 Evo a year and 4 months back. Why is AGV still selling the K3?

I know it's always recommended to try it out before buying but it's pretty difficult for me.
Also please suggest a pair of gloves under 3.5k mark


I wear shirt size 42 and use Spartan Helios in L size.

Initially it will be a bit tight. But will loosen up over use.

Do let us know the review. I too have 3-4 of them but never tried while riding. I use a cotton balaclava instead which covers the entire head till neck with only eyes open .
