Hi all, I'm a new rider, i'm still looking for the right bike, anyway, just thought I'd ask about helmets. I've been to the bike shops tried all typs of helmets. My question is, what is more important, the safety features of the helmet or the comfort? I'm told that I'm a Shoei type head, very comfortable to wear (xr1000) but the Shark helmets not as comfortable are supposed to be the best on the market, but, are they really? I feel that most bike shops just want to sell you what ever they want to clear off the shelf and giving a loaded sales pitch type opinion. What experiences or advise do others have with helmets?
