how much is your head worth? get a helmet to reflect that?

you got a $250 head? Didn't think so...

29-01-09, 08:23 PM
its true that. cept its a pressie from the old lady.

oooft that's a nice helmet. I got my HJC Matte Black/Blue Barbwire design for $250 on sale at helmet warehouse about a year ago. The design isn't as subtle as that, but I'm still happy with my purchase.

Looks like this:

chip in the rest yourself, PLUS put the question on her, GUILT :D

I have the same shaped helmet...

See how they angle out at the back? Looks really cool, but not so good when driving on the track in your car... pushes your head forward because it hits the headrest :(.


Here's that back bit:


...for riding, I think your head is worth more IMO.

Garth. i like your style man.:twisted:

wilch-...that looks SICK. i think the word to describe my reaction is *frothin* haha.
i wont be riding all that much. it's mainly for track purpose's

i cant afford to spend more than 20bucks on anything for the next fewweeks.. im buying a car very soon and ive got insurance (two fucking grand!!!!!) on raods and shit...

ill most likely just get an entry level one for the time being... im a growing boy anyway haha, i dont mind the look of the RXT boss helmets. ive herd there great bang for buck. im sure mum will prefer the price aswell..plus, if i drop it and fuck up the paint, its not the end of the world...ill just spray it flat black haha

im pretty sure my mate brad sell's RXT's aswell thruough his buisness... should get a good deal :) http://shop.sydneycitymotorcycles.com.au/picture.asp?PictureID=1343740

Yeh KBC arent too bad, quite a few of my friends have bought them. Im not too sure about the quality though, cause one of my friends got a VR-2R and the lining at the bottom of the helmet started to come apart. Took it back to the shop and they said that they just had another guy who came in couple days before with the same problem.
Also ive noticed that whenever he puts his visor all the way up, it starts to rub against the helmet surface leaving some marks and scratches...

My review is.

- A little heavy, but no too bad
- Wind noise is a bit much but I use ear plugs so it's all good
- The little clips on the visor break overtime and the visor won't stay shut properly, the new range of visors are better but still break but over a longer period.

- The are AS and Snell dot approved
- Resonable pricing
- The tinted visors are ADR approved. not race only ones
- Large range of designs (I currently have the Mat Mladin replica)
- Many visor options to suit the design of the helmet
- Used by many ASBK and some AMA Superbike riders, which gives me faith in the helmet if they are using it

/Cool story hansel

I have a KBC VR2 Stealth with a black tinted visor.

Not a bad helmet.

Not the best either, but I'm more than happy with it.
