    When to replace helmet?

    I've read 5yrs, 7yrs. and anytime it's dropped. Is there an industry standard ? Also, who's building the quietest helmet on the market? I like my Shoei RF1000 but it's 6 yrs. old.

    When did the RT get cruise control?

    Thought the first cruise came on the R1200RT but was just told by a BMW tech that some of the later R1150RT had cruise. Anybody know for sure?
