Is there a Helmet available with speakers built in or some sort of groove made to accommodate the earpieces? There must be some, it's a very basic requirement. Please post if you know of any such and the relevant prices.
My Alternative for the same issue.


You can fit these on almost any standard headphone. I'm using them on my Nokia Handsfree Ear Buds for little close to an ear and they are just awesome.. Gives you a complete In-Ear experience.

How much are these for and where did you buy them from?

Okay, I have a few queries for the Gurus.

My budget is 8-10k.
I will be buying a RE Classic 500 soon. Now, I am a sedate driver and the machine compliments me. However, I will be doing a fair bit of touring as well.

I need a helmet, a jacket, a pair of gloves. I know its asking for a lot, but would it be possible for you guys to just tell me what my shopping cart should contain?

Please advise whether any additional stuff is required.

PS: This is the max I can extend the budget for now. Upgrades would be slow to come by for another year. So, I would prefer having all the essentials.

Thanks!

Running on a tight budget I would recommend you the GPR helmets, they are the best bang for the buck you can get here. And DSG Gloves/Jacket you cannot go wrong with it. But also try the Joe Rocket stuff which is similarly priced.

Will DSG and Joe Rocket fit in my budget? I thought they would go over 10k for the jackets themselves.

How does Cramster work out?

Any good helmet shops in Delhi?

Thanks man!

If you have acquaintances flying down from the states, it would be worth the wait for quality gear at attractive prices.

Going for gear locally, your shopping list may look somewhat like this :

Jacket : DSG Spike/Nero / Cramster Pulse - Around Rs.5500/-
Gloves : DSG/Cramster - 1K - 2.5K
Helmet : AGV/GPR -around 2.5K

These moreorless fit your bill.

I hope it's not too late for this request, but can you please write a review of Picus? I am planning to buy them soon.

@ESSYOUWE . If i were with you in the same budget. Instead of a Jacket purchase now I would have gone for Knee protection first costing 1500Rs. Jacket will contain the elbow protection so you need not purchase it separately.Gloves,elbow and knee Protection are Important.I would rank Knee protection more important than elbow protection.I might be wrong but I feel so. If your budget doesnot allow you to buy a Jacket now,you can wait and get it later.But first Helmet,Knee protection and gloves.

Default Riding Jacket.

Need some opinion's and views:

I am looking at a mesh riding jacket somewhere in the range of $ 90-100.
Have narrowed down on this one:
Fieldsheer Congo Air Mesh Jacket - Street Bike - Motorcycle Superstore

Don't know of any more websites or sources hence couldn't do much of a comparo.

Would need some views on the same.Was looking at alpinestars, but couldn't find one at that price.Any other brand or website i should consider before ordering this?
