Bell Vortex Greaser Helmet

http://www.motorcyclecloseouts.com/s...greaser+helmet

How do you like it? I currently have a Scorpion EXO-400 and am looking for a new helmet. What do you think about Bell Helmets?

I was looking at this Helmet at 2 Wheel Toyz and found it online for 1/2 of what they were asking. I will cal them and see if they price match online prices or can get close since I would rather spend my money in one of our Sponsors Stores.

Motorcycles Unlimited stocks Bell helmets, see if he can match the prices and you can try some on for a good fit.

You definitely want to try them on. I was looking at Bell helmets and found the fit different than Scorpion. For me it seemed to hit the back of my neck oddly so I didn't get one and picked up an HJC RPS-10 instead.

I tried a few Bell helmets on at 2 Wheel Toyz and would need a large, I liked the way it fit. I wear a medium on my scorpion Exo 400

Why are you acting surprised? you used it last night and liked it, because its tight, just perfect for your tiny weiner.

BTW, keep in mind that most of the time you can swap out liners, incase you find a cheap helmet in a size close to your size.

It works well for me cause I almost always where a smaller size cheek pad than liner... so I just look for either size.
