    Distracted riding

    Forum Sponsor
    I'm all for new technology if it is needed and if it can be used safely.But this Jarvish helmet is way over the top.Shoulder checks are just fine thank you.A rider doesn't need to check in with Sirri or google while on the road.I think kind of crap is for the i-pad wielding younger crowd.

    VR goggles and a Playstation 4 strapped to your tank for half the price.

    Technology is wonderful. People can text each other whilst they are all sitting at the same table. Duh.

    I'd be in for the noise cancellation if it meant I could ditch the ear plugs.

    why TF would a helmet need a front facing camera?

    this is like the parents you see at kids sports or whatever
    watching their offspring through a 4 inch phone screen

    put the phone away
    your kid is right there in front of you
    in real life, in widescreen HD

    To replace the GoPro stuck to the helmet now.

    The parents are recording it for posterity....

    ...I was the dad shooting with the long lens at the rink. Being an ex-pro shooter, I got a closer view of the action thru my lens. ;o)

    Ya,love it for the other ingredients.Onion lime chiles cilantro.....the avocado has no flavor.It's just like pasta.It only tastes like what you put on it.

    My 6 yr old grandaughter said it best when offered avocado toast by mommy one morning."no mom,just butter"
