So now that I've got a bike again I guess its time to update my gear. I currently have a couple off brand full face helmets that I bought a long time ago when I didn't have much money. I'd like to get something new that will better protect my head in case of an accident. My local shop doesn't have any big brand name helmets because "we can't sell them and end up having to sell them below cost just to move them." Looking for brand name choices and models, and also wondering if there is a good website to order the helmet from? Also looking for some new gloves. The last pair I have are Joe Rockets and they are years old and pretty shot. Probably will not be going with gauntlet style gloves, not really looking to do any extreme type of riding, just commuting. Any advice for either subject is greatly appreciated. Another note on the helmet. I had borrowed one that had a slide down tinted visor, that went back up into the helmet with the push of a button. That was a pretty neat feature that I wouldn't mind having. Budget on the helmet is probably going to be about $500. I'd like to stick around $100 on the gloves. I forgot I also have a GMax flip front helmet that I bought for snowmobile use. I don't think it was very expensive so I'm not sure I want to trust my life to it, or if its even good for street use.
