so I'm going to get a helmet tomorrow, before I go for my L's next week. No better way to start, than safety first yeah?> Anyway...have been looking at helmets for a while, and from what I know...and quite obviously...the FIT is the most important factor. As I don't give two shits about graphics and colors, I will be buying a plain black helmet...one that fits me the best and that isn't super over priced. i KNOW you can't really put a price on safety...but I'll have to. I'm spending up to and including $400, to accompany me on my 250cc bike. I'm looking at the Shark range, $399 at Peter Stevens... but would LOVE a flip face helmet. Reason being is that...I have a fairly large head...more wide than large, and have had trouble putting a helmet on. I fit a Large comfortably...but its only comfortable once it's actually ON. The problem is getting it on, as my head is wide, at the top. The Shoei flip face I tried on was amazing, and super perfect fit. But its also $800. I heard Nolan flip faces are about $400, and same with Lazer...but where do I get em from??? I'm in Melbourne, inner city, and travel to outter suburbs is not a problem. Any help/info is WELL appreciated. Thanks guys!
