    They say if you have a $100 head, then buy a $100 helmet. Choosing a helmet includes many factors such as fitting, design, cost, features, graphics etc, so with that in mind, show us ya lid.

    Mine is a KBC Dragon and I bought it at the riding school that I went though - I paid $350 with a tinted visor  ;D

    I picked up a new AGV T2 today, I wasnt shopping for a new helmet, but i dropped into Bayside Yamaha to pick up some 2 stroke oil  and noticed they had one on clearance, usually $595 and I picked it up for $350 as it was last years model.

    I went into my favorate bike shop after getting my l's and tryed on just about every helmet in the shop before coming back to the first one I put on. checked prices around and he was about $100.00 cheeper so I walked out a happy little Vegemiter. I had a helmet and a licence now it was time to test ride some bikes.  :occasion14:

    Finally did the dirty deed, went and bought a new Helmet.
    Had been looking for some time and found a great deal
    via an E,BAY site, the firm is Sydney based.
    Price was right, delivery was even better. I'm happy.  :Thumbs_up:

    Sorry if this is a repeat post. not sure if the other one worked as it dropped out while i was trying to figure out how to post pic. Hopefully pic works as well.

    Got my Icon helmet a few months ago.  Great price at mates rates.  Very comfy helmet and extremely happy with it. Anyway hope the post works this time. :icon_scratch:

    I've only used it a few times and I will be putting it away because I think it's too good to wear as an everyday helmet, I love the design too much. This was the last one my mate in the bike shop could get me in Oz and that was 2007.

    It will be my "oncer" helmet.

    Yeah it has been a good helmet. It is a bit loud. That's about the only gripe I have with it. I'm glad I went to M2R for the offroad too. Really light confortable helmets.

    I like those flip down lids on the shark. Great idea I reckon.

    Don't have a picture of it yet. I have a kbc rock hard limited edition slipknot helmet. Don't know if I want to wear it or keep it and get a new one.
