Darnit; I just got a brand new helmet a few weeks ago for my 900, and was storing it on a washing machine box in the garage. Well, turns out we had a leak in the garage, and when combined with the **** rain from the storm San Fran had, caused the box to collapse, dropping my new helmet about 4 feet or so.
The damage? About a square inch work of scratches and scuff marks on the backside. The scratches aren't very deep, so aside from the lesser aesthetics, is the still okay to wear?
insurance companies, and even some manufacturers would say if the helmet fell off the seat of your bike onto the ground its no good, shock can do "unseen" damage- but NO ONE in there right mind would trash a brand new helmet from something so light, i guess in the end its really up to you...:|
