Default Helmets

OK, so I went to the SCCA Auto-X this weekend, where is the best place to buy helmets, I'm not wanting to spend a fortune, which I realize might be a difficult accomplishment, but I don't want to get one so cheap (old) that I'd have to get one every year.

Any Ideas?

Go to Honda of Anchorage, or the Motorcycle shop on Potter. I got mine at one of those places for less that $100, and it doubles as a decent snowmachine helmet in the winter. (It has the anti-fog shield and breath deflector thing).

Later...Kris

Ben, go see Ben at Honda of Anchorage on Fifth downtown. He had some Aria helmets for cheap. Tell him who you are on the board and he should hook you up.

I got mine from Honda Motorcycles downtown area for like $150. I happend to have a friend that worked there at the time and got me a good deal, was supposed to be a bunch more but since the helmet I wanted wasn't in stock I lucked out

He told me NOT to use snowmachine helmets, something about the lens...grr forget why.

Anywhoo, he pushed the dot/snell approved on me instead of going for the cheaper dot approved only.....took his word for it, and went for the more pricey one.

Most motorcycle shops are the best place to go...usually they have sales now since the newer styles are out.

I take off my visor when I race anyway, and it is great that it doubles as a snowmachine helmet for me.

But eventually I would like to get a better helmet, OK, just one that is painted a nice bright yellow!

Cool, guess I will have to go talk to Ben, or at least just go down there and see what they got. This would be good, because isn't Honda stuff usually red?

Hehe, Honda sells them, but I don't think any are actually Honda brand helmets. Mine is a HJC.... I *think* it's this one, if not, it's VERY similar, and a couple years old now.

Not a bad price, I think it was $220 up here, but like I said mine was 2 years ago and might not be the same exact model. It's comfortable as one can be, and is DOT/Snell approved.

I would reccomend this one if you're just looking for a good lower priced helmet...

both approvals, and not dumb looking (imo).
