Oh yeah, I can't read about anything with "Aria" on/in it via the web. After all, the web isn't good enough for them to peddle their helmets on. Aria has ban web sells, so I've ban Aria from the web...


'02 Blue Quantum/f bought on the web last March before the ban. I'm in the market for two more helmets. Guess which brand I won't purchase...?

Just a few thoughts...

1. Learn to spell.

2. I think Arai's logic, to prevent unncecssary returns becuse some nimrod thought he knew exactly what model/size, and most importantly, shape helmet he needed, makes sense. This is perfect for the first time Arai owner, like me (Signet GT) who needs to try some on. Your argument is of course, try it on at the store, then buy it online. Lame, but your choice. If some dealer stocks $20k worth of lids for me to try on, and then spends an hour with me, I reward him with the purchace.

What, you say? You already own one, and know exactly which one to buy? If you've got the cash to buy another of the EXACT model while it's still in production, then stop whining about the $30 you'll save online. I buy every 5 years or so (SNELL), and I"ve NEVER seen the same model for sale than I currently have.

Bottom line, if you're giving up a superior helmet for a few bucks and/or convience, fine. More for me.

First ,it's Arai and second, go ahead and buy an inferior helmet. When you crash and split your head open you'll have plenty of time to think about Arai in the hospital or possibly the morgue. It sucks to have to pay more at a dealer but at least it will fit right.
