Helmet was gouged, and damaged all along the left side of the chin bar. When I approached her at the scene, she was unconscious. Thought she was dead. Couldn't get her to respond. Only after a few minutes, did she wake up. Impact with the ground at idle speed crushed her body, helmet saved her life. She's ridden since childhood. I have also. 40+years of riding. I consider her one of the best, experienced riders I've ridden with.

Soft head, hard ground.
I get it! Glad she is OK and has recovered from that experience. I applaud your courage to share the story. You got me thinkin' fo sho!

Now, on the Sena, I've used the Scala system for years and then moved up in technology as I say, to the Sena system. Love it. Can't ride without it. BT phone, music, turn by turn direction, good mic, decent speakers, good battery when used and maintained properly.

Cool. What SENA system are you using? How long have you been using it?
