new helmet ??!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1,1&item=8059132392&sspa gename=STRK%3AMEWN%3AIT]http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1,1&item=8059132392&sspa gename=STRK%3AMEWN%3AIT,http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...RK%3AMEWN%3AIT[/URL]

so i got her friday pretty good deal since they usually go for like 350+ new, and this has one lil scratch on the back, not on the helmet really but some of the 0 from rf1000 is missing no biggie, plus i got an extra mirrord shield.

o man this thing is so friggin comfy, i never really knew what riding was like until this thing came along, its like half the wieght of my old hjc, cooler inside, and fits like a glove.
so just sharing

ya, you got a good deal, but you should get the thing cheaked out. cuz if he dropped it. the only thing its good for is eye protection. thats the thing about buying like that.

Its a great deal, but shoei helmets form to your face after a while to offer maximum protection. By wearing a used helmet theres a chance you may not have the same face shape as the previous owner.

Congrats on your new helmet. It's hard to make the jump to brands that cost twice as much as the one you usually wear, but boy is it worth it

I switched from HJC to Arai and I just love the extra comfort, quiet and overall quality of the Arai. I don't know why their face shields are so much more expensive, though.
