Last racer-replica I wanted was the original white-base Doohan, which should have been issued with every first-year CBR900RR.



You can't be who your fakey-do helmet says you are; have the guts to design your own. Besides, the flat-black or white ones are cheaper, no? Support your local airbrusher!

Local dealer is clueless.

Personally, I'm partial to the new Duhamel replica Shoei. The dragon is pretty cool. I can only take so many random swirls on a helmet. Also much less than this Hayden helmet.

Default In defense of the CL-12

The HJC CL-12 is a pretty darn good helmet. I have one for track days, when I can't wear my HJC Symax. Both lids look pretty good with my 2 pc. Roadcrafter.



The days of Korean helmets being inferior are about over. Have you seen some of the new KBC lids? They're pretty sharp. Five years ago, I wouldn't have touched a KBC or a HJC with a ten foot pole. Now they are making high quality, comfortable, durable Snell rated lids at rock bottom prices.

I paid less for my first bike...not all that long ago. It improved my riding skills much more than this helmet could. Am I implying that this helmet will not get anyone around a track quicker than a helmet priced in our atmosphere, as opposed to the stratosphere? Repeat after me, "Buying a helmet that looks like Hayden's will not enable me to ride like Hayden."



How can Maaco paint a car for $300 (granted, it will be a crappy job) but Arai can get away with charging $300 to paint a helmet?

Not to worry. JB is currently sampling Honda's new ST1300. We also have new model information from Kawasaki, as well as a Suzuki Volusia.

Default Re: $700 for a helmet?

Amen on last year's closeouts.

Harada replica. It's got enough different colors to clash with anything I wear!!!!

You may as well run a comparo on the ST, and the Volusia. Someone will will ask for it.

You can get an Arai RX-7RR4 for $425 bucks at www.kneedraggers.com and get it painted for cheap by an airbrusher. The badest helmet I ever saw was on the Las Vegas Extremes 2 video. It was a Shoei and it had pictures from how should I word this um "Gentlemens Magazines" of women performing a certain act on each other. It was coverd with them. They somehow laminated them on the helmet it was awsome.
