    well, i bought one helmet in oregon because i got a killer deal on it. it was the last one they had in the corsair to. oregon doesn't have sales tax so i grabbed it to lock in the price. i'm going exchange it here in washington for the one i want.

    $520=oregon
    $650+10% tax=washington

    You have tried it on right? you're not just picking the helmet out based on a website and what they say should fit your head?

    I've found that a lot of people don't. My Shoe-i is a med and fits like a glove, while another model of shoe-i in small fits a tad bit on the lose side.


    I'd go with the first helmet unless your bike has some yellow in it, then go with #2.

    I was trying to find the Arai dealer training video posted a long time back, anywho I ran into this.

    this post was from a good while back, so when they said late feb, they were talking 4 months or so. there was no follow up on if he ever found one.

    Guessing a quick google search should give you some answers on that.

    I do have to say I'm 100% happy with my RF900 but from what I've read Arai edges out Shoe-i in comfort, of course comfort is in the head of the beholder...

    no matter what helmet you buy, ear plugs are a must in my book.

    Once you use them, you can't go back.

    Nope, I tend to ride by myself. I dislike riding in groups. people end up doing stupid things.

    yeah, groups suck. but as for hearing loss, i use to work on f-16's in the air force. i'm kinda fucked already. but i need to keep what little hearing i have left.

    You can hear horns and sirens with earplugs in?

    Yup, in fact I think you can hear even better, the sound of the motor is fucking awesome! If you put earplugs in and just walk around your room, you'll hear things like how loud your footsteps are as with any running water or weird sounds in the room. its really weird,

    Also, with earplugs in you can easily ride around with your visor open.

    If anything blocks the sound of horns or sirens, the main thing is the wind noise, next in line would be the exhaust of the bike. then I would say earplugs.
