Into Africa was the first Adventure travel book I read after getting into motorbikes. From the first to the last page I couldn't read fast enough. Straight from the off I found the book captured my imagination. I truely felt as if I was along for the ride.

I love the observation of the road and the people Sam meets on the way. Its a great account of the site sounds and smells of the road. As the other review suggest the only bad point about the book is it will have you getting the maps out and jacking your job in.

I've had my Arai Condor for 4 years. It has covered around 60,000 miles of all weather riding in it lifetime and done very well at holding up to all that I could throw at it! I have only just now replaced it with a new helmet so hears a few words about it

The lining of the helmet is one of the softest out there, and evan after four years stull feels soft and relatively new. Evan up antill replacement it was still waterproof, never letting in water through the visor seal. I found all the vent easy to use and particularly liked the brow vents on the visor.

Things I didn't like about the arai are the noise. It is very loud dew to the side pods, ear plugs are a must on this helmet. Removal of the visor takes several pratice attempts before it becomes easy to swap. I also found it relatively heavy compared to other helmets.

It summery its a good all round helmet. It always protected me from the worst weather and has always been comfortable to wear.
