I was wondering what helmet you guys are using and how well you like it? I have a cheaper AGV now and want something a little better.

I recommend whichever helmet fits "you" the best. Regardless of how expensive, if it doesn't fit right, it will suck. Try on a bunch of different helmets. The quality ones will be worlds different than the cheap ones. There will be a big difference between the way the quality ones fit as well. There will even be a big difference between different models of the same brand. Everybody's melon is shaped a little different and there is nothing worse than a helmet that doesn't fit quite right. Though personally, i like Shoei. Good luck.

HJC and Shoei are the only brand's that I have tried and I like them

both. There are so many brand's and so many model's of each

brand you will need to try them on and see for yourself. If you are

thinking about getting a chatterbox then I would lean toward's an

HJC.

I bought an HJC AC-10 last year, and I love it. Word to the wise - if you like the HJC, stock up now. This small company has been price dumping their helmets for some time now, they ain't gonna be this great of a bargain for ever.

I agree, helmets that fit are best but if you want to get a SWEEEEEEEET lid, get an Arai, Shoei, OGK, Suomy, etc (ya know, the most expensive ones<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"> )

Arai's are consistently the top rated helmets.



They have different shaped shells to accomdate different head shapes. Their web site has a lot of inofrmation on sizing and head shapes.

I look at it this way. #1 it hast to fit right ( if you 're unsure of what the right fit is ask some one!!!) i dont think even hog riders would not help some one get it right. #2 how much is you're head worth? if you buy a 25 dollor helmet thats just what you get!!! I have seen people get into some nasty crashes, some with good helmets and some with not so good helmets ( wether its fit or quality ) and thoughs with and with out lether , gloves , and boots. Guess who wound up alive and who is not. Dont get me wrong NO helmet in the world will help with a 200+ mph kiss with a wall or car. Crashing is just a fact of life. Neither you or i or any one on this bord can change that. But what we can change is our chances if some thing dose happen. And its all in the desichions we make before we even get on the bike. Helmets, gloves, back protectors, boots ect ect ect. Yes they get expencive. But how much is you're life worth? Personaly i would rather spend 3000 and be ok after a crash, than to spend 25 bucks and get in to a crash and have the damn thing split open exposeing my head to the pavement. In the end its all up to you and how you want to stack the odds when some thing dose happen. Theres nothing like rideing, and i wouldent give it up for any thing. Just remember there is danger out there. Have fun, keep the rubber down, and ill see ya out on the road.





Sorry for the rant i just feel verry strongly about this subject

Just my 2 cents worth

I had a Shoei before, and an Arai now. They say the Arai is cooler (better ventilation), but I haven't notice too much difference. The Shoei was definitely quieter. Since Arai has chosen not to sell their wares over the internet anymore, it makes my next helmet choice easy. Shoei all the way!

I have an HJC and its allright for a budget helmet. But I do belive you get what you pay for in helmets. My next helmet, I will spend the good money will be a shoei. I had an RF105V many years ago and it was the best fitting most comfortable lid I had.
