Arai Helmets

Curious as to how you all buy them, do you take out loans? or just pay like $700 cash?

Yeah they are expensive if you buy them from the Regular "Internet Sites". You have to order them from Motorcycles Unlimited or Discount Sites like Ebay/Craigslist. And the $700 ones are all the Race Replicas, the normal ones only about $300-$400

The only thing that bothers me is trying on helmets... I want to buy online.. but i also want to know that when my helmet shows.. i have the right size and fit...

I feel like a going into a shop trying on helmets knowing I wont be purchasing there...
