I think this is something you should go with your heart on.
Only you will be trully happy with your choices if you make them yourself, everyone
has different tastes so our opinions on this matter may not be what you really
want inside. We trust in you and will stand by you with any decision you make.
You may look in certain directions of your life to decide this, such as the size
of your wallet, the one that has a cool design that you may like, or simply the one
that has the colors you want.

Be strong my son.

Both good helmets. Go with the one that fits you best first, then pick out what graphics you like.

i just picked up an Icon. they seem to be up pretty up there in quality, but are alot more affordable. i got an alliance one, but was hoping to find a rubatone in stock.

it fits really well, and looks good to boot. i guess if i pick up a reguler passenger i will get a rubatone, and the homegirl can look good in the alliance.

I've got a shoei and hjc, but if I had the option of getting another one I'd definitely struggle amongst Suomy, Arai and Shoei...all of them have graphics I like, and I think they're close in fit too (not sure)

Suomy all the fricken way! I love my RF-1000s don't get me wrong, but the Suomys are just a cut above the Arais and Shoeis.My Suomy's wieght is low and airflow is great! Come into Cycle Gear and I'll hook you up! Or I have a used (not wrecked in) Shoei that I will sell for way less than we sell them at the store.
