i dont think helmets are things to go cheap on. If it's not Snell, I'm not wearing it!

Bill probably should have been wearing a better helmet while racing , but putting his last name on the back of a helmet isn't the only criteria I use when purchasing one.

I don't like the dual sport helmets, I find the beak acts like a sail and pulls up on your head.
