Is there any reason to avoid discontinued products? The AGV T-2 is discontinued now but I figured if there was no reason not to, I could get a good helmet for a fraction of the price with it being on close out.

Also, what's everyones opinion on the high visibility colors for gear?

If it were something like a helmet I would buy it without hesitation if its discontinued. It's not like there is a lot that can go terribly wrong with a helmet, and if there is then chances are it needs replacing. Maybe just pick up a few spare visors if you intend on using it for more than a season?

I would seriously doubt anyone would say anything if you had a ece helmet vs a dot one.

Anyway I love agv helmets... They just don't even come close to fitting my head.

My issues I had with my only carb'ed bike was when it was super humid in the summer. It loved the cold air though.

My race suit is black, but my street riding gear is brightly colored. Will it help....who knows. You know if a cager hits you their first quote will be "i didnt even see him!" even if you were dressed as the cool-aid man.

The only thing to think about when buying a discontinued model is it's build date. If it is a 2010-2011 build helmet, it's only good for 5 yrs then "recommended" to be replaced. IMO if it's a killer deal, go for it, you'll want/buy a different helmet before that one expires anyways. I got a leftover shoei rf-1000 one year for like $200 because it was the previous years model. Only had 3.5 years left on the build date....but hey, i'm rockin' a shoei lol

Where do you guys put your leathers and what not when you go to work/school? I'm starting classes up again next week and will be riding to and from school, but not sure where to put my jacket, helmet, and soon to be boots. What do you guys do with them?
