F.W.I.W. it was a Shoei RF model. (900 series from what I remember)
How do you know how good it is in from the factory? You should cut open your new one to check
Hell they probably bounce those things out the factory into truck, and off.
Guys are probably using them for forklift joisting.
In my travelling heart, there's an urge to see
