word...i just got back from the shoei seminar at D & B. it was tight. saw alot of the new line. new stuff for '06. and a behind the scenes look at shoei. P.I.M.P.

oh, also note the visor. see the little tabs? thats the new pinlock system. a little insert fits onto those tabs...on the inside of the visor. the insert comes in like 5 different colors. this way you dont have to carry a whole different visor around with you...just a tiny insert. its also made of a new high tech water absorbing material, that is said to FINALLY be something we can use to truly deal with fog for once.

well let me know, ill take care of you. they passed one around at the seminar and it was simply stunning. the pic doesnt really do it justice at all. im thinking about saving up for a shoei, too. i've got an icon, and its ok...but now that im riding faster and more often, im noticing things like helmet lift, buffeting, noise, the weight...etc...all things that shoei has allready squashed like a pro.

Bad looking helmet but I really hate the way Shoei's screens fog BAD regardless what anti-fog you use

I got to have it! It looks like an RF1000. What do ya'll think? I really feel the RF1000 is an extremely comfortable helmet and very light too. The X11 feels uncomfortable, but it is trully light though.
I hope this new Gangsta helmet from Shoei is below $600.

The 06 RF1000 above is called JOUST TC5. It's MSRP is $474.99. That's a sure helmet for me. Maybe you guys can hook me up if you guys know where I can get it cheaper.

Just looked on newenough.com...they also have one with some blue accents. I'm feeling that helmet for some reason--wouldn't normally be my style but I think it's quite pimp...and I decided that in the next few months, when I save up I'm gonna buy a more expensive helmet so maybe this one will be on my short list of "try-ons"

Oh yeah guys, that means I'm selling my current ICON helmet. It's a MEDIUM Scorpion [Mainframe] helmet in yellow. I'm letting it go for $150. It's very comfortable, I had it to match my 06 R6 in 50th Anni. color.
If you guys are interested, hit me up with a PM. Oh by the way, the price is negotiable. Thanks. I have to give it up to make room for this new bad boy from Shoei.
