    PERSONAL opinions of an OPP SAVE officer

    It depends on how his license was lost. But generally, no he can not just get a sled licence and go on his merry way. And yes we can check the validity of his licence trail side.

    This is similar to what is supplied with our FXR helmets... https://www.amazon.ca/Helmet-Buckle-Release-Motorcycle-Disconnect/dp/B07GFCMJMQ/ref=pd_sbs_263_1/144-7221595-0800522?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B07GFCMJMQ&pd_rd_r=92a363b0-0246-46f7-a757-dc3829d50983&pd_rd_w=MLuI4&pd_rd_wg=egyiH&pf_rd_p=3885b243-7797-4c4b-b0ae-97ca9ec36283&pf_rd_r=6TV1VQ3M7HPRFRPRRF69&psc=1&refRID=6TV1VQ3M7HPRFRPRRF69

    This is the one we use... https://www.amazon.ca/Echo-Quick-Release-Black-Size/dp/B002MQCY7C/ref=pd_lpo_263_t_1/144-7221595-0800522?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B002MQCY7C&pd_rd_r=f0966f8f-dae5-4158-aa55-f7455ad16f11&pd_rd_w=6gw7c&pd_rd_wg=nJxT3&pf_rd_p=256a14b6-93bc-4bcd-9f68-aea60d2878b9&pf_rd_r=PMQ5C3FTXYYB97VK4SAH&psc=1&refRID=PMQ5C3FTXYYB97VK4SAH

    All the helmet losses I've seen (and I've seen way too many) were the result of no strap, or the strap being way too loose. I've noticed many times this year people using the small plastic snap to "buckle" their helmet on. The snap that is used to secure the access strap out of the way. Not caring or noticing the strap dangling easily 2 inches under their chin. I've yet to see a quick release fail. Having said that, I'd probably go for the more expensive ones. Ours are a combination of metal and plastic. They are hard to manipulate with gloves and even bare hands at times. But they work well.

    Hey Dave, great questions!!! We do use quick release buckles on all our helmets. I honestly can't tell you what brand as our equipment is supplied to us and comes ready to wear out of the box. I've never seen any failures bot personally and in a collision. When helmets fail in collisions it's because they weren't buckled tight enough or not at all. There are no regulations against the buckles Go to your local powersports store and check out what they have. I find some are more of a pain to use than others. Sesn

    Weird. Haven't heard of anyone having problems like that. Let me know how it goes. If I can, I'll check from this end.
