Good news and bad news. First the good:
Took both the OGK FF3-GP and the Aegis out for their first road test. Took my chances with the traffic and rode down along Highway 1 to Big Sur and back. Wow! The Aegis breathes! Plenty of airflow, which will be appreciated in a few months. The leather is much more "flexible" than other suits I've tried off the rack. Comfy, no complaints at all. Quality is apparent. The OGK helmet was a pleasant suprise. I was worried when I ordered it, but the fit is perfect! Snug, (a bit of a sqeeze to get on and off) but no pressure points. It is very light. It is the lightest weight helmet I have ever seen or tried. Graphics are good, styling unique. I liked the AGV XR-2 because it was so stable at speed. This helmet is even better. You just forget you are wearing a helmet at all. Some have complained about the noise in these but I always wear earplugs anyway and had no complaints at all. Actually, I was surprised at how quiet it was. Like most full face helmets it will fog while stop & go in town unless you keep the visor cracked open a bit, then it is fine. Good ventilation. Extremely pleased.
Now the bad news: I honestly don't know how I did it, but when replacing the rear bodywork after doing away with the hideous mudflap, I must have torqued or tightened too much at the front most anchor bolt (right side) I didn't notice any problem at all when I was retightening everything. I tried to be extra careful. But today when I checked the bike before my ride, I noticed a web of tiny cracks spreading along the bodywork, emanating from around the bolt.
issed2: The left side is fine. This is why I don't like to do much wrenching on my bikes or cars. I have the worst luck/karma.
