Hi Guys Well I bit the bullet, dragged the visa card out and went to bikemart to get a 'decent' hemet. It was either a shoei trz or the arai vector. Having had trouble with not getting my previous Nitro not snug enough, I found the shoei fit alot more firmer then the arai. BUT ... after trying it on at home ( havent ridden in it yet as its a xmas pressy ) It's so tight to put on, thats it actually HURTS my ears. Removing it is WORSE OUCH My Question .. can a helmet be TOO tight? Its bearable once its on, but I'm worried that after riding in it a while my head may swell to the point I may need to get it surgically removed Will it give? I dont need a $600 ornament .. should I get a larger size .. or go for the arai which seems to have a larger base?
