best place to get a helmet...

Looking for the best place, I guess with the largest selection, to get a Helmet on the Houston area.

I have a big head, and most helmets… if they fit, have so much padding inside I look like a mushroom.

I’ve borrowed from time to time helmets with less padding, but can’t find one of my own.

Motorcycles Unlimited. They have the most knowledgeable staff (IMHO of course).

They can look at your noggin, measure you and help you pick out the right helmet.

I have found a large number of dealers (MC) have a limited supply and are a bit off with their price range.

I have yet to stop at K's and see what they have.....maybe I will take off work a bit sooner and stop in. I'll report back
