New Honda Bike gift promotions

Post by Barney » May 18, 2018, 1:48 pm

I purchased a new Honda bike about 7 weeks ago and was told the usual story of free rego, free 1 year insurance, a free jacket (cheap type), free helmet ( not sure of the standard ) and a free Go Pro. All arrived
Was totally surprised that the GF was rang after the 7 weeks to go pickup the promos. She said jacket is a cheap one, helmet is OK, but, to my surprise is the Go Pro Session, is waterproof. These cant be that cheap. Now when I get home on the next R&R I can do the university course to understand how they operate. I ain't tech savvy.
Any one know if this Go Pro Session is a costly device and if the model is easy to operate?
Bike is a Honda Rebel 300.

Certainly not a throw away item Barney..
In September, GoPro announced the launch of two new action cameras: the Hero 5 Black and Hero 5 Session. Both of the new cameras are now available to buy in Thailand, with the Hero 5 Black priced at 14,999 baht, while the smaller Hero 5 Session is 10,999 baht.
Go-Pro produce quality products & the manuals are fairly easy to understand..

Of those the helmet is certainly OK and if you have a use for it so is the GoPro. You will see that many police have them on thier helmets now.

nice bike, nice go-pro, I'd take the helmet back to Honda and politely ask if you can trade in and up on a full face. They're hotter but offer much better protection.

Personally having ridden hundreds of thousands of Miles on bikes over the last 45 years in both hot and cold climates using both full face and open face helmets I will not use a full face helmet in Thailand. For me the extra protection is not worth the discomfort. My experience of accidents is regrettablely quite a bit less than zero and while I have tested :lol: a few helmets a full face one was never better protection in an accident then an open face one was.

If I were in the UK full face would be good but not here.

The caveat is that my helmets were always good ones, currently I have two Shoei open face.

Also if you want SWMBO to use a helmet you are not going to have a lot of luck getting her into a full face one.

Everyone has different opinions, I shared mine, you shared yours. Good to have different perspectives, the OP can choose as he likes.

Everyone I know/ride with here in Thailand that rides big bikes wear full face. Interesting enough so do their Thai ladies. The Thai ladies are also ok with proper jackets and protective pants for touring. Possibly we just hang out in very different circles or do a different style of riding.

I do agree with you 100% on getting a good helmet whichever style you choose.
