w/o an LS2 dealer in a city of more than 4million is kinda,,, how do i put it?

so, i had to go the next route and try on the speed and strength branded LS2 dual sport.

i wear a XXL,,,, i found the long oval to be a good fit, but the chin bar and room in the front of face is small, too small for my liking. must be the shell size cause it really felt like i was squeezing into a too small helmet shell.

looked and felt like a great helmet though.

EDIT: I just checked AM website and they do not seem to have the progrip goggles any more only the 100% Accuri. Sorry for the misinformation.
I did just receive a pair of Progrips with the light-sensitive shield, purchased via Amazon (thank you Prime). They were in the $50 shipped neighborhood, which isn't bad, since I was able to order them with the light-sensitive lens included (most of the other options I've seen required ordering that separately). They seem to fit well in the helmet, but I won't be sure until I get a chance to ride with them Friday or over the weekend.

Thanks,

Phil, got my MX453 today, haven't ridden with it yet, but initial test fit seems great, no pressure on my forehead at all!! Quality seems great, liner, paint, general fit and finish, everything looks great for a helmet of this price. I'll get a chance to ride with it this weekend or sooner and give a report!

Anyone locate a source for the 386 pin lock anti-fog insert? My fog city got moisture behind it after I washed it so I need something better.

I'm using this:

but there are less expensive options that are completely clear and remain fog free:

This $15 option works perfectly:

That is what I used, I forgot the brand name. It works great but once it got moisture behind it I had to peel it off, I may try to install it again but now it has some scratches.

I believe Atomic-Moto can order it for you, even though they don't have it listed on their site; you can also order from Amazon:

I see you've gotten some good response as to where to find the Pinlock for the FF386. The part # is 02-420.

Hope that helps.
Phil

Helmet color's effect on heat of the rider.

Have you ever wondered if the color of your helmet mattered in regard to how warm or cool you are? Have a look at this video. The answer might surprise you.

got to do a short ride today with my new mx453, and all I can say is WOW, what a great lid, especially at the price they sell for! fit is fantastic, no pressure on my forehead, yet the helmet fits nice and snug everywhere, just slightly tight, so in a few hundred miles it will feel even better. Can't wait till the weekend to put some miles on it! just gotta say, thanks for making such a great fitting helmet!
Ordered up one of the modulars the other day for my girlfriend, excited to see it as well!

I'm really glad to hear your helmet's first impression was so good. Enjoy the weekend and get some riding in! I'll look forward to hearing your thoughts after some miles.

Thanks for the vid! I'm often surprised by the threads on this subject here on ADVrider. Everyone in southern AZ knows whether color makes a difference, but apparently some in cooler climates are confused. ;)
