LOL I merely took a glance at it and my brain thought it was the auto start/stop button.

I don't feel as if it's darker than the normal tinted ones are.

I don't really use them unless it's super bright out and I have a windshield banner. I'm the guy who can't stand sunglasses. Lol

I hate it. Swag is the coolest parts of the automotive industry. Stickers, lanyards, everything.

Then you get to track days and you get yard sale stickers.....

On my Arai, I found the mirrored shield to be great on most days. Only once or twice was I finding it borderline too dark, and that was on some of the very late run groups early in the season (think 7pm in April).

The mirrored shields do have a tint when you look through them. The smoke ones do not.

Ever since my mirrored visor in page 1 took a nasty impact from some tire clag and ruined the finish, I've been running a more sedate dark smoke visor. I actually prefer the look to the mirrored one -- it's more sinister looking.

I might add a Corvette Racing "jake" somewhere one of these days.

TNIA should have changed the color of the 2019 sticker.

I haven't been yet in 2019, but my 2018 sticker is the same color. Who wants the same color sticker on their helmet?

Looks like the RS7.

Get a helmet that fits your head shape the best. Fitment should always take priority over aesthetics. Find a local race shop that stocks lots of helmets and have them test fit you.

Thanks. Yep I've been riding bikes over 10 years. First car one. I'll get a good one. Looking at the G-Force cf one. Don't wanna pay an arm and a leg either. Thanks again.
