Shoei all day long IMO. However, in decent priced helmets, HJC's or Answers aren't bad. You just gotta go to Honda of houston or another dealership and try a few on for yourself. If it's comfortable and in your price range, roll with it.

Just go try some on.....

I tried on a few, found one that fit and was comfortable and bought it (MSR)

I tried quite a few they just felt like a foam ice chest.... :(

buy one that is comfortable, and fits your head.... don't worry about what it looks like etc...

I just recently upgraded from a Bell Moto 8 to an Airoh Stelt. Those things are sweet. My Airoh weighs only 1000 grams. (Bell Moto 8 probably weighs about 1500 grams).

Not sure what your budget is though. Biggest issue with Airohs is that there are no US distributors, so you have to order via the UK. Still worth it though IMO.

Dont get a quad. I think some tracks dont allow them to ride, or at the same time dirtbikes are on the track.
