I got this from motorcyclegear.com a couple years old stock, its carbon fiber and it was only $125 new in box.

I have never seen a carbon helmet for that price since (3 years) in any style.

I have more money invested in my teeth than in both motorbikes combined, ATGATT so 'nuff said about that.

Once you have used a carbon fiber helmet you will never settle for putting another extra pound on your head with a fiberglass helmet.

I currently have 4 helmets I rotate. HJC 3/4, HJC full face, Speed + Strength modular and Speed + Strength full face. The HJC and Speed+Strength fit me well compared to most. Depends on weather on which I use. Commuting daily in Houston my helmets get funky quickly. I almost always have liner out of 1 or 2 drying after a good wash. I always ride with a helmet.

Actually the Harley does have red pin stripes so it kinda does match. But one is due for replacement this year.

All Shoeis - X-11 (Full), RJ Platinum (3/4), and NeoTec (Modular). Extremely comfortable, quiet and well ventilated.

I had bought a Bell Revolver Modular before the NeoTec, and it was/is horrible (Not comfortable and loud).

Love the Shoeis. Will probably never buy another brand.

I never ride without one on.

Don't have a picture but I ride with a Daytona half shell in the summer and a scorpion exo 420 full face helmet. If anyone is looking for new helmets scorpions are great.

Got a red HJC CL17 and the open face version, same color. More and more often lately I'm riding without a helmet. Today I went on a 180 mile ride and never put the helmet on. It's with me in case I change my mind.

Bell Pit Boss carbon matte half helmet with visor. The zippered neck curtain with ear flaps is removable and they have speaker pockets. The visor is interchangeable clear or smoked and it retracts into the helmet if not being used. Full face helmets make me claustrophobic.

For mad scientists who keep brains in jars, here’s a tip: why not add a slice of lemon to each jar, for freshness?
