I ruined my Thor at Splendora two weeks ago. I bought and M2R Rev2 off of e-bay for $70!!! They are $200 helmets. Alot of people really like them because they are super light (2.8 lbs or something). Then again some people don't like them for one reason or another. I figure for $70 I can't go wrong.

You only have one head, use it wisely!

I am a big fan of the TLD, Shoei and Arai helmets for comfort and protection. You get what you pay for! I just bought a new TLD after a few to many years in my Shoei.

But the HJC Chromiums are a very nice lid for the money.

I have to put my vote out for HJC AC-X2 helmets. They are very affordable and have a vaiety of colors to make people happy. Oh, I forgot to mention that they are one of the best helmets made. They also make helmets for a number of clothing companies like Thor.

No body like the no fear helmets? :)

Who cares? If you like the look and the helmet fits you good, go ahead and get one. I don´t think anybody tries to sell a non-certified helmet any more.

I have the Arai with the detachable nose or whatever. It is pretty much the lightest helmet made and I like it a lot.

Shoei and Arai are not even close in how they fit. If the shoei fits you really well you better try on the arai first. Totally different helmets. I have an Arai head can even get the Shoei in the same size on. Good luck
