Is this a counterfeit?

Go here:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/MENS-...#ht_500wt_1182

and tell me if, like me, you think this is a total counterfeit. If not, then I'd love to know the name of this model. Click on the photo to go to several photos of the article.

19 year old Arai? Wow! Isn't this, like, 14 years too long for safety?

Talking My 1985 Honda Gyro for $500 cash.

This little beauty was sitting at the local Honda shop for a year before I bought it, Only 1000 miles since new and always kept in some farm shop or garage. The small air filter got clogged with fine farm dirt and would not run right, Instead of cleaning it, the farmer brought it in and almost gave it away. One front turn signal was bent alittle and a dead battery it it runs like new. Here are some pictures.

My wife bought me one of those a few months ago. I haven't tried it yet, but looks like it might work great in the hot weather we get down here in Florida in the summer. I can't wait to give it a try.

+1 on the Jet boil stove. It is very easy and quick and light to pack on a bike trip.

Not to re-hash an old subject, but being in the habit of pulling in that clutch lever will keep you out of that mess.

So far the only use mine has gotten is on the tractor moving snow this winter. It worked well, we'll see how warm it keeps my neck at 75mph in freezing weather this spring. Frickin' Idaho, haha

Also, just thought of another useful bit. I get frustrated with the Camelbak and most other brand of bladder because they are a pain to clean and fill and the mouthpiece gets dirty because it lacks a cap. Get a Cabela's branded bladder, they are a top-folding design and have a tethered cap for the mouthpiece. Amazing, something so simple can make such a drastic change. Plus they are WAY cheaper than the Camelbak brand.

Walmart Drybags, dirt cheap and do the job.
