Australian Standard Helmet Sticker

Postby lemotea » Mon Sep 12, 2011 11:26 pm

Well I know this should be illegal, but just in case, if I want to do a race and at that time haven't bought an Australian standard TT helmet, how about I used my normal TT helmet (bought from US) and glue a Sticker from another road bike on it? If just say, I got an accident and I show them my helmet, will it be slipped by for the insurance or not? lol

Do you really want to give an insurance company an easy out, if they found out...? Or a possible DNS from an event if the commissar knows you've pulled a dodgy move by swapping "SECURITY" stickers from another helmet?

Limar Crono have been on sale around the place for $60AU.

Is the risk worth the small amount of money you save? Not IMO, but each to their own.

You'll also find that the stickers aren't meant to come off.

If you try to remove them they disintegrate like those price stickers used back in the I've heard :oops:

I have personal experience of a helmet sticker crumbling off.

Had to a take my helmet into an insurer to be retired after it was bumped in a crash with a car (her fault, therefore her insurer paid for my helmet).

Thought I would see if the sticker would come off before I took it in (dunno why, just curious). You can't peel them off, they rip.
