Re: On the subject of Helmets
Little Joe....I used to be one of those guys looking for a "resonably priced" helmet. After getting a shattered jaw, wearing a full face helmet, I quickly surrendered to the idea of the most expensive helmet is reasonably priced if it protects your melon.
I now wear a modular helmet (Nolan N-104). However, I also know that the helmet one of my road dogs may think is the best helmet out there is no where near as comfortable for me as the Nolan N-104. And they think the same thing about my helmet.
And yes, one of them did cause pretty serious headaches in short order. I think it was due to the way the pads were pressing against my temples. But the guy that owned it thought it the best thing since sliced bread.
So, in short, I think you have to go to one of those stores that just has a huge selection of helmets and start trying a bunch of them on. But I'd suggest looking for quality protection while you're looking for comfort....what ever the cost. jm2cw
