Got an Arai based on articles stating they fit some folks better than Shoei (seemed to be true in my case). Liked the original Schwantz design, so bought a black one and had painted to match my Concours. Got a Chandler replica 'cause I wanted something to match my 6R, and I was too lazy/cheap/in a hurry to have another one painted.
If Arai stops selling on the 'Net, I won't buy another. I've been impressed with the quality gains made by AGV over the years, so I may give them a try next time based on Arai's actions.
Heck...if I could'a found an AGV painted to match my 6R, I might have gone with 'em this time!
