Never sold a helmet. I just assumed no one would want my grimy used helmet.

I have never bought used for the same reason.

I even feel weird about borrowing a helmet, or someone borrowing mine. It's like using my toothbrush. You better be hot, and give great head!

I defiantly see your point,

But i LOVE rare helmets, ones you cant buy or limited production.

This is what i wear on my commute everyday.... stereo bluetooth.... i use it with my phone as i listen to music, gps, and talk to people that really need to get ahold of me (like my boss that can't stay off the phone...).... etc. music never drowns out, and i can talk up to about 90 mph before wind noise gets to be an issue.... yes, it is modular.

sorry for the big pic.

definitely annoyed.
