    I'm looking for a new helmet and cant make up my mind. I figured others would find this useful as well so here we go.



    Does anyone have experience with cheaper entry level dual sport helmets? Fly Trekker, AFX FX39, MSR X-Pedition, GMax GM11D, maybe even ($$) the Speed & Strength SS2500.

    I have an AFX FX39 and love it.
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    I have this one and it is awesome. It seems to run a size smaller than normal.

    I have the Fly Trekker and I like it. I have nothing to compare it to, but I give it a B+. It fits well and looks good. Problem is it tends to fog up. Its been a great helmet though. Its lighter in weight than it looks.
    If you can't find it, grind it

    1 vote for the GMAX GM11D. I still like it a lot.

    I too have the fly Trekker ... great price at $125, looks cool (I put on the mirrored visor), fits comfortably, light and overall a decent helmet. Purchased from Motorcycle Superstore, free shipping and literally arrived 2 days later.

    I echo Rainman's statement exactly. My wife and I both have the Trekkers and the only issue we have with them is a fogging problem when the humidity is higher. Oh, and I wish the visor had a "click stop" at the point where the bottom of the visor is just barely cracked open - that could help to prevent fogging issues but still prevent bees from entering.
