Stopped in a my local bike shop today to pick up some stuff I'd ordered. I mentioned the stock of new helmets they had in. Parts manager told me that RCMP is about to turn the screws on this helmet thing, to the point that they will be checking not only dot stickered beanie's for foam thickness, but also checking full face Snell, ECE, DOT helmets for manufacturing dates, with 7 yrs being the magic number for roadside confiscations and fines. He was a bit peeved about this as he mentioned that most of his new stock is 9-14 months old from mfg date.
Guess I can't wear a couple of my Mick Doohan Arai's anymore.
