    Something light, but approved for MotoX. I have had to many concussions, and I need something that in your oppinion, "The Best"! Money is not a concern right now, I just want to ride.

    I am talking to a neurologist soon, like in the next week, but maybe a TLD. My old one is a 661 which should have been replaced a while ago.

    Smart move! Without any doubt I would get the TLD moto helmet.

    Nice - I'll be switching to a moto helmet too for next year. I've taken way too many hard hits.
    I'll be sticking w/ a TLD one too.

    That's a good looking lid for sure. The Dainese one looks pretty cool too.

    LOL Yeah, 'nutsack' - awesome. The raw colour reminds me of HL2 textures for some reason.

    They also have an aluminum weave one for this year that is supposed to be stronger. Still not MOTO tho, if hereally wants moto. It protects really well however.

    Also, paint it nice and it wont look funny.

    I am not sure why but I have taken a liking to the new Thor top of the line helmet....more specifically the primer one.

    :think:

    Check out the Fly Moto Lite series. Snell & DOT approved and very light. I have been really happy with mine so far.

    Just remember that all DOT helmets go to the same standards and that's all you can say about protection. As long as it fits and is of reasonable quality (which is basically anything that's not total crap), then I think you'd be hard pressed to justify a more expensive helmet being more protective than a cheaper one.

    yeah, but anything non-TLD is just not METRO enough.

    I came home last night and found an empty box for an Azonic T-55 helmet sitting in the living room. My wife bought it for me for my birthday which is next week. She hid the helmet some where and left the box out to tease me. Grrrrrr!!!!!!
