Egads... $654 for a helmet... wow. Look great though, but big price.

Those are a lot of stars. Looks cool. For some reason, reminds me of all the Evel Knievel stunt stuff I saw when I was a kid.

I have tried many different full sized helmets and my fat head only fit into a Shoei brand. I bought just a plain metallic silver one but the one I really wanted was this

Reason I didn't get it was the price (was almost $100 more). I love that evil jester look....

As I get older, I have come to realize that there is truth in the saying "if you got a fifty dollar head, put it in a fifty dollar helmet.":soapbox:

For my big fat round head, Arai is the only way to go for a full face helmet. VERY NICE.

Not true my fiend (pun intended), you need to check out Motorcyclist's real world helmet test, otherwise you will waste a ton of money and not be as safe as you could be! Startling results, and bullshit answers from the Snell Foundation, it's all a scam!

$80.00 helmet provides the best protection in real world conditions!:hitfan:

Snell Foundation was not happy, but has never proved Motorcyclist wrong!

YES, do your research. Just because you pay $600 for a helmet, it doesn't mean you are getting any better protection.

Of course, the look is the most important part anyway, so the $600 is worth it.

Seriously, anyone wanting a new helmet, do some research before you spend a lot of money.

Wow, I read MOST of that anyway.

Interesting reading at the least. I still think there is more to a helmet than just protection. There is comfort and style.

I want a low noise, high comfort helmet that will protect me. I wanted something with great venting and little to no fogging and something that didnt leave my head feeling like a grape after 6 hours.

Guess I will find out in a week.

When i saw the $600+ price tag an the Arai I said WTF??? who in their right mind would pay that $$$ ????

I tried it on and busted out the debit card.....the comfort level was off the charts for me with the Arai. Worth every penny......

I just ordered this from helmet city which I have seen here on this site.

I have grown tired of my fxrg helmet. It is too noisy and fogs too much for my taste.

Not to mention the new dx looks like more or a sport bike to me than the other vrods. So I got a sport bike helmet.

Excellent selection as I have the same general type but last year's model.
