Helmets?

Sorry if this is a bit off topic...but...I am looking for a new helmet and I was just wondering what the concensus here is. Do you other dual-sport folks like a full face helmet a module helmet or an open face helmet?

Arai Profile. Unfortunately for my wallet, it's the only one that really fits my head.

When in doubt, gas it!!!

I have a plethora of helmets for different riding and different bikes. When touring I use a modular mainly for convenience. That said, one of my favorite non-flip helmets is the Scorpion EX-400 for it's fit, value, and 2 features that are a must for me... anti-fog (that actually works) and anti-scratch. I've got helmets that cost 2-3 times what the Scorpion does but oddly they collect more closet time than the Scorpion.

May I suggest you call and talk to "Jeff" at "Helmet Harbor" @ 1-866-303-9786 (toll free) or contact thru http://www.helmetharbor.com/index.htm. - he's your brain bucket man!

Some helmets are reviewed in the Product Review section. I have the Nolan N-102 and love it.

Typical Chick :roll:





:lol: Just kidding. If I had more than one bike at a time I'd have more than one helmet, too.
