I wear a matte black HJC CL-17. No need to post a picture, because it looks like every other matte black helmet out there. I like it though - fits well, and since I wear glasses, it accommodates those nicely as well. My brother has an Arai, but since he recently damaged his helmet when he laid his bike down at speed, he's going to purchase a CL-17 as well.

I like the HJCs too. I wear a white and a yellow helmet, both plain solid colors, both Arai. I like them but I really like the chin curtain on HJC rather than the pull-down chin guard on Arai. HJC also has a better visor mechanism.

I really like my Suomy Apex helmet.

Mine is all white and got a free smoke lens with the purchase. They have different shells for different sizes.

Pretty light and fits my semi round head. It is a bit on the louder size though.

My first helmet was a scorpion exo 400 which i really liked.

oooo white with a smoke lens sounds really cool... I will have to google it to see what it looks like! (if you included a pic, I can't see it cuz I'm on the computer at work lol)

I have some down time here and I'm bored so I'll post up my main helmet now.

I painted this one right around the time I painted the Spidey one. It's just a cheap TMS from ebay but I love how it fits and how the visor clicks and the price was right. I've loved Slipknot since the 9th grade (even though the more recent stuff I don't much care for) and so it was an obvious choice for me to paint a helmet like Corey's early mask.

Same as the other helmet, I spray painted it and then did all the detail work with sharpies. The dreads are material I got from Joann Fabrics.







I do have a clear visor for this one... for riding in the rain. If the vinyl print on the visor gets wet, I might as well just close my eyes  :icon_sad:  I love when I come up behind someone in a car and they start turning around like omg wtf and I wave at them and they wave back haha

Bell qualifier, Rally Hi-Vis graphic. Love this helmet but the standout is the Transitions face shield. The face shield actually cost more than the lid itself but I honestly won't go back, perfect visibility at any time and in any conditions without any messing around. Honestly so worth it if you ride in all sorts of weather or commute on the bike.

This is the AGV Diesel Full Jack. It's gonna be my second helmet. Pretty soon here, I'll be riding my GS500E for the first time after it was stolen last summer. Its since been stripped down, repainted and rebuilt all by myself. My first big motorcycle project.

I'll be riding around the Seattle area in a few days. If we cross paths, throw me a wave, yeah?

Just ordered a Bell RS-1,  will try to post more once I get it.  I was going to an Icon but found this Bell for $190 on closeout, normally $400.

Open face with a flip up curved and removable visor. I cannot stand the reduced visibility and claustrophobic full face helmets.

I own one of these, and it saved me from what I expect would've been some nasty road rash on my face recently:



Can't recommend HJC enough, inexpensive, DOT and Snell approved, and lots of styles to choose from.

Well alrighty then... I posted a couple months ago in this thread about wanting a clear visor for my helmet... Never got around to it since I typically don't ride at night, but....It's quickly becoming fall around here and now when I leave for work in the morning and come home late at night, it's dusk/dark. So I've just been riding with my visor up and wearing clear sunglasses to protect my eyes. I said 1 thing to my wife, just 1 thing, a minor passing comment, about getting a clear visor for my existing helmet, and she sends me a link for a local helmet for a good price with a clear visor already. Duh, I'm not about to pass up another helmet, they are nice to have. This one is a HJC and it's my first SNELL approved helmet, I can definitely tell/feel a difference with this one. Much better protection with SNELL. Just picked it up last night so no pictures yet, but it should work nicely for these early morning and late nights! Yeesh, spent more on the extra helmet than I would have on a visor, but I can't complain about that!

Takachi TK-30 - First one in the nearest shop that fit, about 8 years ago. like this but in blue.



Its pretty horrid, fogs up whenever it can and buffers pretty badly above about 50.

looks like the Dept. for transport gave it 2/5! Yes!

Crashed in an HJC, staying in an HJC though I ended up with a 400 dollar model.. only thing I regret is buying in MATTE, NEVER BUY MATTE HELMENTS, THEY TURN TO CRAP SO QUICKLY.
