It's not like a helmet is protecting anything important, so get what you think it's worth

DOT tests to a minimum standard like all gov't test

idk know if they are still doing it but 2 Wheel Toyz will give ya $100 off on a new lid if you bring in an old one
if you dont have one at all just get something but if you do save up some money and get a good one.
i tried my brothers scorpion on the other day and it was pretty nice dont know what other reviews say
but me personally can vouch for shoei after slamming head first into a fence post leaving a huge dent on the top of my lid. helmet was trash, but at least im still alive with no brain damage

Scorpion exo700 was perfectly fine... never noticed it being heavy. UNTIL I wore a lighter helmet. If you aren't spoiled by a light helmet yet, then get a scorpion (or other decent helmet), get some boots... and look into the best fitting lighter helmet later on.

FYI...get boots that are perfed... MUCH better in Houston.

Helmet first and then boots. The BiLT boots are actually pretty good. Mine are holding up really well but the sole is starting to wear down from all the walking I do in them. I have had them for over a year now with 2 minor lowsides with them. I replaced the insoles for more comfort.

built stuff is better than no stuff... if you are riding now and built is all you can afford, go with built, then save up for the better stuff down the road....unless of course you have the inner drive to stay off the bike altogether until you can afford the big bucks stuff.
