Re: helmets

I own two TMS helmets, as well as other name brands, and have no problem wearing them or offering one to a passenger... They may be less expensive, but I have found the quality and fit to be pretty darn good. Not everyone has the money to invest in the Shoei (or other high end) name...

DOT approval is DOT approval... the brand name is a status thing in most cases. If it is comfortable, keeps the bugs out of your eyes and has DOT approval --- then what is the issue?

Seriously??? $50 for a helmet?
The old adage about a $10 head comes to mind....

Re: helmets

That might be a good way to cover S, M, L head sizes.
