Hi all. i'm buying my first bike/gear soon and have been researching helmet protection forever. I know all about the different approval's/certifications, but I wanna know what the bottom line. Is it worth it to buy an expensive ARAI/Shoeii helmet or are the HJC/M2R's etc just as good? I'm a true believer in "you get what you pay for" and I dont mind paying a little more if its protecting my head, but if a helmet is 25% of the price and just as good, how can I not consider a cheaper one?
thanks for the help guys/gals this site has really helped me out!
Oh, and i'm looking for recommendations on beginner bikes too!
