    I'm looking at getting my first motorcycle and I came across this.
    http://slo.craigslist.org/mcy/496793604.html

    Now, I'm not really looking for used gear but, if its a good deal then why not?
    Question is, whats the helmet worth?
    I'm thinking about buying it, not so sure about the jacket as I would want one without old sweat stains :rolleyes:

    And is it a decent helm?
    He says the model is CL-14 FUSE

    don't buy a used helmet. it's the one piece of gear (well, maybe boots too) that I will not buy used, period.


    where are you? I'm a poly student, and from slo craigslist I'm assuming you're local. if you need help with shit, feel free to ask.

    Never ever ever buy a used helmet! Not only because it's like wearing someone else's undies, but because you don't know if it's been damaged. Also helmets should be replaced every 3-5 years regardless of whether or not they've been damaged as the materials do break down over time. A helmet is the most important piece of gear you will wear, buy the best one you can afford. :)
