hey guys...
i'm planning on getting a helmet prior to attending bike course this season... as u can see.. i'm a newbie, but i figured i could use the helmet anyways at my workplace too (go-kart track) :D....
i dont plan on dishing out many $$ for a top-o-da-line shoei or arai so i was thinkin of an HJC....CL-12 SIII to be exact....
(even though bl1tz thinks its uglay, n wants me to go for a suomy!)

dunno what to do... :confused
just wanted to hear some opinions n suggestions...
advice greatly appreciated....

heres a pic of the HJC i was thinking about.... only $US 150 @ helmetharbor (approx. $250 Cdn)

dude make sure you wear a helmet for like 10-15 minutes.
until the padding compresses you might get incredible headaches after wearing the helmet. Everyone told me that the helmet should fit snugly. Both large and medium fitted me fairly well so i went with the snugger medium which i regretted for a few weeks. it's ok now though :)

Another thing is, do you wear glasses? If you have to take your helmet off and on, and you do wear glasses consider one of these helmets where the whole front swings up, not just the shield. Mine doesn't and it's damn invconvinient sometimes. Take off the glasses, put on the helmet, put on the glasses...

anyway hope this helped.


oh yeah i got the extra cheapie Xpeed from Burnaby Kawasaki for 130 bucks :)
