Worth noting: with my Moto 9, I am using a Medium liner with Large cheek pads. Not quite sure the mm measurement of the cheek pads, but they're a little thinner than the cheek pads that came in the Medium liner kit. Excellent fit for me. Also I JUST ... more »

i rode with mine a few times and no, it did not get one-bit better. I sold it right away, went to a Bell Moto 9 Flexx and its been great, albeit on the heavy side. With that TLD, I was constantly trying to fidget with it to get it to be comfortable while ... more »

Fly needs to rebrand really, really badly. From a designers perspective their identity and mark has always been dated and off. It’s killing their design. I always feel like their designers don’t study design itself and trends (not even trends in moto, ... more »

I highly doubt that is true. The world isn’t one big conspiracy. I’m sure there IS a factor of “setting the pricing bar” higher which then opens the door for others to follow snd reach for that bar as well. But Bell has the resources and likely the desire ... more »

Great point.

I’m sure having a light helmet at 1200 grams isn’t the be-all end-all in regards to what can he called a “high end helmet” but they can at least pinch grams where they can. Get rid of those fancy flip-up visor screws and go minimalist Ti, and ditch the ... more »

I assume it is the same weight or very close to the Moto 9 Carbon Flex? I can't find the weight of the new 10 anywhere...so I assume its not in the 1200-1300 gram range. I have the 9 Carbon - Love the look, fit and tech. But my medium is 1540 grams. ... more »

Awesome. I’ve done that before too (remove casting marks). I used a right angle air grinder with a scotch-brite type of attachment. Lots of work. This is going to be good -

You should be...again - way to think outside the box. Love it. Heating up the welds to give it that raw look is awesome. I may totally copy that!

Tell us about the frame - did you have it bead-blasted then powder-coated in a clear? Looks outstanding, and unique.

Yeah we want WAY more detail on this. The KTM200 is the most-fun bike I've ever owned - this has to be a blast to ride. Holy crap.

I don't even know if thats the problem (oval VS round) - I've worn almost all of them (Shoei, Arai, Bell, M2R, Troy Lee Air), and this one fits unlike any other, ever and not in a good way. As Team Green suggested, try them on....but I can tell you, ... more »

I thought it was great as well - 'listened to both parts end-to-end. i've met Broc a few times when I was an industry-bro and he was always incredibly nice. I liked his input about the des Nations and think he would be a great (and fairly unbiased) manager ... more »

Can’t get enough of these podcasts GuyB. Tony has proven to be a great person to interview as well - he has come full circle, owns his mistakes but justifies them in my opinion. A good one, but like you said, could have been longer.
