Online helmets

I'm looking for a new helmet, specifically a Shoei RF-1000, and wanted to find an online dealer with good prices. Any suggestions?

Try Helmet City. The owner and the manager there are both personal friends of mine, and I'll vouch for them 110%.

Motorcycle Accessory Warehouse usually has very good prices - I hear people complain about their customer service, but I was very pleased with their service when I bought my Shoei.

I'll ask, but I'm doubting it. Arai is tight about who their resellers are. They want them to be trained in fitment and so forth, and that's not compatible with online sales. Do you have a model/size/color scheme in mind?

Yea,

the XD in Large. I don't understand Arai's point on this. What if you've been wearing the model/size already, and are just looking to purchase another?

great video ;-)
