Are Expensive Helmets worth it? And Where to Buy Helmet In Canada?
Hi all, I would like to say that I am new to the forums, but not to bikes, I am currently looking for my first bike, a CBR 600RR.
Anyways, I have a crappy HJC helmet right now, and my safety course is coming up in 3 weeks.
The helemt I have would be good enough, but I have been using it for my car when i do 1/4 race days, so I am uneasy about using it outside a parking lot.
Anyways, I like the way the shoei hemlets fit. But looking at the different models I dont know what to get, sitting on the shelf they all seem to be the same besides the graphics. Is there a benifit to spending 400 instead of only 150? will it save my head better? fog less?
I really like the RF-1000 Picotte 3 TC-5, but dont want to spend double on a sticker job.
Also being in Canada is there a good recomended place to buy from? I have been looking on helmetharbor, but shipping from the states to here usually kills me in customs charges. So somewhere cheap in Canada would be great. (they want 800 in the local stores for the helmet i listed)
Thanks in Advance
EDIT, looking it doesnt seem helmetharbor ships to canada anyways.
