$583.....otd

There were a couple on ebay (Hayden Laguna and Pedrosa) that I was looking at for a little less ($549 and $579) but I had a bad ebay experience recently. Got it through a good friend of mine who has an vendor account and can get stuff from Tucker Rocky, obviously he's not on the "big discount" list cause cost on the helmet from TR direct is $427 if you can get on their direct dealer list, but he gets them through someone who gets them from TR.

List price on the helmet is over $700...most retail places seem to sell it for $600-650 + tax....and after getting burned on ebay for some Joe Rocket gloves I'm not inclined to give someone $600 no matter how good their feedback is.

yeah at that price so do I!!!!! it's definately not disposible like my HJC, even it was around $180

But I guess if I do "need" it, I'd like to have my head in the best that money can buy within reason.

Yep, I like the fit....one of the only helmets that fits my head well. Not sure if that's a good thing or not.


not necessarily a Pedrosa fan, just really like the helmet.

thanks....got it finally. Had a bit of trouble with the shipping, should have just paid the $5 for drop shipping.......the company screwed up and sent it to NY and then had to have it shipped here. (its a long story)

I've ridden with it a couple of times (today included) and its AMAZING. I've owned a TON of helmets over the last 25+ years of riding and this is by far the best. It's my first Arai and unless I can find something 'better' I'll buy Arai from now on.

Definately worth the money.
