    i like icon helmets they seem to be the coolest and they aren't that expensive. if you are willing to pay 600 for a helmet go for an arai they are the best. Don't buy Shoei they cost too much and they fit really funny.

    take your pick, they're all pretty damn good. Whichever one you get just make sure they are Snell and DOT approved, which they all are.
    it all depends on how much you're willing to spend. Personally, i've gone through a few helmets. I've had AGV, Arai, HJC, and Shoei. I liked the Arai the best, it fit the best out of all of them, but it's up to you. Here are a few of the brands that i could think of.

    Shoei
    Arai
    AGV
    Bell
    Nolan
    Bieffe
    HJC

    i've always liked Honda bikes better than any other one. i've had a CBR600F2 and CBR600F3, loved both of them.

    my vote goes to the CBR600 series as a started bike cuz it's a light and nimble bike but it's also got some balls. if you're looking for a new bike make sure you consider the CBR600RR as well, it's a sweet ride.

    my next bike is gonna be a Duc. i've been riding since i was 11 so i think i'm ready for a serious bike and not just a crotch rocket any more.

    good luck on finding the right bike for you.

    Shoei are for funny shaped heads.. Arai (what I own) is just a great all around helmet, they fit very nicely, and look sweet, and have vents that ACTUALY WORK!!!!

    i think the votes are in and the ARAI is the preferred brand.

    in case you didn't pick up on it, i voted Arai as well.
    and the helmet only costs as much as you wanna spend. you can get an Arai helmet for about $300. trust us, it's worth a lot more than that.
