Well, I picked up a Fulmer M1 helmet today and have ordered a J&M headset. I wore it for the first time today (on the bike) and found that it hurts my neck. I normally wear an Arai Classic M 3/4 helmet and didn't realize that the Fulmer is almost twice as heavy. Looks like I might have a new Fulmer for sale in the near future.

I had same problem with the new Shark Evo. I did 2000 miles with it last week and my neck was throbbing mid day each day I used it.

My vote goes for the HJC carbon, I have both the 3/4 and Full Face, each equipped with Scala Rider headsets, and have been alternating between them for the last year.

Highly Recomended.... -...................Don

I bought a new Fulmer modular helmet. Took it on a 4600 mile bike ride. My neck was killing me. I remembered that my back rest had been adjusted prior to the ride. I readjusted my back rest so it would not push me forward as much. That alleviated the neck pain. It was not the helmet weight as much as the backrest pushing me forward. I would check out your backrest and adjust it so you set back a little more. Worth a try.

I actually saw a girl in Cartersville with her helmet on backwards. Riding her own bike with the tail light duct taped on. Was having a terrible time at lights because something was wrong with her shifter and she kept stomping it to go in gear. When she wanted to wake up her left hand she would have to reach over with her right to keep the clutch engaged.Now that's the kind of rider I want behind me in a group ride

Come up to the Dells Ride Joe. Those are the precise riding habits I've been cultivating for years to entertain Pitt.

Hmm... sounds like the gene pool needs a little more chlorine.

Could you add a little more description as to what this is and how it is used. With a cervical disc problem, I'm looking for some help in this area. Thanks.

I remember the fibreglass helmets used to be very heavy. My wife won't wear a helmet weighing anything over 3lbs as it kills her neck. Some helmet makers need to address this issue.

Just think how cool you're gonna look when your neck muscles buff-up to handle that new helmet. lol
Actually, I think youv'e got a good idea there.

Shafer, you might try wearing it for the first half of your trips. After a while I'm sure your neck and shoulder muscles would get into better shape and it would be OK.

Stronger neck and shoulder muscles would probably make your longer trips a lot more comfortable. Your old helmet would feel like nothing at all!
