Hey, as long as you have the cash, why not?

If it fits your noggin', you'll love it. When I ordered my Shoei Multi Tech several years ago(From Dennis Kirk) I wasn't sure about the size so I ordered 2 of them. I kept the one that fit & returned the other one. It cost me $6 to return but it was worth it to get the right fit. None of the local dealers stock high end helmets so I couldn't try one on. I have since replaced that Multi Tech with the new Neo Tech. This time I knew what size to order

I live in my own little world, but it's OK, they know me here.

I think I might get a Shoei at next years motorcycle show unless someone has a sweet deal going on now. My brother bought a Shoei helmet at the motorcycle show 2 years ago and he still raves about it.
