    Too shy to post my helmet pic after seeing all the gear here. I wear a Showa RF 1000 with a smoke wiser.
    Playajay has one KBC Repsol Medium size which he wanted to sell and I've been eyeing. Haven't seen him around since that post.

    Just got my new HJC AC-12 Yikes lll, very nice helmet. Tried on a Shoei and

    didnt like the way it fit. Was wanting to get something else, but the new

    HJCs are really nice and fit my head great. No one around here sells Arai, or

    Soumoy to try on. Overall, very impressed with this helmet so far. Great lid

    for the $$.

    Cool lid - it's definitely nice having a helmet you're proud to wear. My last helmet was fairly plain, no snazzy graphics. I was actually in the market for a new helmet when I bought the Repsol, so it made perfect sense to get what I did.

    It's the first "cool", albeit the most expensive, helmet I've owned.

    I looked at that Byrne lid myself......I was getting IT if I couldn't find the Hayden limited. I have a Shoei also, check my gallery, and it is MUCH quieter than the Arai. I just ordered a Suomy '05 Biaggi, I've been reading good things about them....curious to see how it is.

    P.S. I'm NOT selling either one of my bikes ....You guys are cracking-me-up over here !!!

    I new a new lid so I checked out this thread. I've been using my car helmet which is too heavy, fogs when not moving and I can't close the vents at night. I used to use Shoei I may end up with the Nicky Hayden Laguna Arai if I can find it, but...

    Here's a few I like because of the graphics and/or price
    Icon Mainfarme Skull Fusion (like graphics)
    Bell Apex Ripper white (like price)
    Shoei RF1000 Picotte 3 Orange TC-6 (graphics/color)

    These are boring but sound light weight
    Icon domain solid color (Carbon composite)
    Dainese Airstreem (has blue tooth)
    There is a full carbon one but can't find my magazine (forgot who makes it)

    So can anybody comment on any of these from experience?

    Yup, HJC makes it:

    http://www.hjchelmets.com/ac12_carbon.htm

    It is a very nice helmet, light and comfy. My buddy has one and I drool over it every time I see it. The helmet that is, not my buddy!

    My next helmet will be the Icon Mainframe, but the Subhuman model. My wife has the regular Mainframe and loves it. I've rode with it a few times and it is light and pretty light.

    Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

    OK, just went to the local Hahm motorsports.

    I was suprised the Icon fit well and was lighter then my car racing helmet.

    Shoei was an excellent fit. I remember my old lid I upsized because of the squishy face and after it broke in it was loose. I'll stick with large. Lighter then the Icon and the quietest I tried on.

    Arai was the lightest and has the under wrap stuff the prevents the helmet from lifting when in a more upright position. The only drawback is the Shoei is quieter.

    They did not have the HJC full carbon that I was dyding to try on and see if it's significantly lighter then the rest. Does anyone know if it has the underwrap like the Arai?

    Oh yeah, Nicky Hayden Laguna was a special edition and no longer available. Arai even had the old school Yamama special edition.

    go racer........it seems like you live in orange county. there is a ducati dealer in garden grove or santa ana.....on senventeen st and newhope. between newhope and harbor blvd. the dealer has closed down it doors for good. leathers, boots, helmets, gloves, ducatis parts, just about everything from protection to posters.....the owner is selling everything for 70% off. 6 months ago i purchased a set of boot for $40 bucks ((agv)) bran spanking new. also a set of leather gloves....one vision, one goal alpine gloves retail $150...i got them for $45bucks. my cousin from orange county mentioned to me that the owner still has about $150k dlls in inventory. it would be a good idea to check it out......lots of arai helmets. once i get back from Utah...i will be making a business trip to Orance county and will check out that place again.

    I went to check them out http://www.ducatipartsblowout.com/index.htm but they were bought out over three months ago by ducman. There are some helmets pretty cheap though. I saw Shoei and Suomy for about $250 but none that I was interested in. I did get a chance to try on the HJC carbon fiber and if it didn't squish my face it would have been hard to tell I was wearing it. Allthough it was a M and it took several tries to pry it off my head "lol". It's now hard to justify the price on the Arai Picote whithout seeing it in person. ...unless I went to the wrong unit #? D'oh!
