I have a scorpion exo700, nice helmet and they're cheap. Different brands all fit different so try on a bunch and go with whatever fits snug and comfortable. Shoeis and arais are nice but the exo700 is half the price and fit my head better.

I picked an exo400 up for 80 or 90 bucks at cycle gear, and it is a decent helmet for the price. I wish it had better ventilation, but for less than 100.00 you can't beat it. If you need something cheap check them out. Oh and you can take the gay scorpion badge off the forehead of the helmet.

They look nice, but poor design, at least from the two that I had. Riding with them was like riding with no visor, and extremely uncomfortable on the inside. I love my scorpions tho. On my third exo700.
