      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

Need Helmet Suggestions

Recommended Posts

I am thinking of upgrading to an actual Snowmobile helmet. I used my SHoei Motorcycle I had and it worked great when it was -25 out compared to the other guys that had snowmobile helmet. Just didn't feel the greatest with the Balaclava on. I would like to keep it under $150. Do I want a modular? I know Skidoo makes the Modular2 that is good but spendy. Are the other brand Modulars any good? I seen DK had a Z1R Phantom helemt with an electric shield for around $140. Are these any good? I haven't owned a sled since 95 and just picked one up mostly for ice fishing but want to do some riding also.

I am newbie, but used my HJC modular with the "fighter mask" and it worked GREAT! I think I saw the basic or at least similar same thing at the big online or MN bike/sled supplier, on clearance for about $100. I am going to get another. My wife didn't like the mask part, but it sure kept the fog/breathe from going up to the mask. It is not the best one out there, but comfy, easy to use, and not foggy.

Do you happen to have a model number for the HJC? I have heard others are happy with their HJC and am looking at them a little closer.

I bought a HJC AC-11 this year and have been really happy with it, i got it on e Bay new for less than 100 shipped, comes with the double shield and a breath box, i have had zero fogging issues. It is a carbon fiber one so it is a bit lighter. I also have a HJC hsolist-14 that I have used for a few years, that has been a real good helmet also, i had some fogging issues with this one when real cold out, even with the breath box and double shield, i am going to put a heated shield on it this year. I looked around forever for the best price on helmets, found a guy on e bay with good prices and service, if interested pm me and i will send you a link to his store.

I don't think we can PM unless we are staff. I think I want a Modular but if you can tell me his store name or something I would appreciate it. I would like to see if he has any of them.

FYI, PMs are not enabled on the forums, regardless if you are staff or not.

I have a Fulmer Modus SNM1 modular helmet that I got from L&M Fleet a couple of years ago. It was on sale at the time for $130. Not even close to being top of the line, not even a "name brand" for snowmobile helmets, but it fits well and the price was right.

HJC is much better than paying for Name Brand helmets like Polaris or Kitty Kat.

I have an HJC hsolist-13 I think and I love it. My wife does too.

Great helmet at a cheaper price.

Heated shields are a must and are much cheaper than the name brand ones too.

I picked up a nice Mossi modular helmet at Dennis Kirk last night. It was on clearance, almost have price. Right around $70-$80.

Fits nice! I like how the front flips all the way up. The little riding I did last night after getting home, it did not fog up at all. I figured for that price, I would give it a try.

    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!! 
    • I know, you hear about them everyday in the News burning and terrorizing the good atheist folks of Belle Plaine MN.
    • Are the houses built on an order basis only?   How long did your build take from order to delivery?
    • The one I installed in my previous house was the same way. Like Tom said, be sure to watch the humidity levels. When they get too high you can start to get mold growth. I always watched the windows. When they'd start to get a lot of condensation on them I'd turn it down.   Be sure to check the filter at least once a year. I lived in town and still had to replace the filter every year because of buildup on the filter. When it would get clogged the water would pretty much run straight down to the drain in the bottom. 
    • Looks different to me, or probably just the light and shade difference.
    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
    • Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR. It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.
    • Yea, well down in Belle Plaine you got all those gun toting Christians to protect your ars!
