Helmet harbor and such

Hey Gang,
Is buying helmets from places like helmet harbor and helmet express ok? They aren't seconds or abnormal helmets? I'm ready to take the plunge on a Shoei
RF-1000 and they are 50-75 dollars cheaper than my stealership.

Thanks,
Pluggy

I bought my last helmet(Shoei) from Helmet Harbor...as they were cheaper too. Make sure of the size you need and order away.

One last thing you may want to do...as I do like to support local...is ask if the local place can price match...but if they can't...oh well.

And no, they're not seconds...if anything, fresher(sooner "made date") due to their volume.

BTD.

We will beat any advertised price on Shoei helmets
