Yeah, new helmet for sure. A guy from Nolan once told me, "after some years, all the parts that should be hard get softer, and all the parts that should be soft get harder". Of course he was in the helmet business. lol.
After 13 years, yeah, get a new one.
Highway pegs are always an issue on the wing, because of it's width. I tried the Mick-0 pegs on my 1800, and got about 1/4 mile outside my driveway and scraped the bottom of the left peg. I was on an open road, with a normal curve, not in any canyons or anything. They were nice enough to take them back for credit, with just a small penalty for the scratch. When I had the 1500, I just removed those outboard decorative pieces, it's not that bad a look. Kuryakian makes all kinds of different extensions, and mounting hardware to help you get more comfy. On the 1800, best I can do is have about 3/4 of my boot on the peg, but that's plenty comfy for me.
