Well I found it on ebay for 240 with less than left on the auction. It fits my head and a great price but you know I find it boring looking.

Lmao!

Style is more important than first for me personally... to a point.

What I'm hearing is a variation of "The women look better at closing time" - i.e. the helmet looks better at discount time.

But in the end, it comes down to "Do YOU think it's good looking"? That is all that should matter.

- There is some perverse beauty about being up in the air looking down at your bike during a high-side get-off.

I like the helmet! Here is a place I've bought a few helmets from, they mainly specialize in Arai helmets.....Arai Full-Face Helmets. Hope this helps and good luck!

Like.

I almost bought that. It was a toss up between that one and the ID. I went with the ID.

Here's a discount code I found on Arai Helmet Specialist, Amazing Prices, and Firstgear Premium Apparel if anyone is interested. Code is "discount8". I think it is just for their Firstgear apparel though but it's worth a shot.
