dont go until you are ready to buy. he wont fit you unless you buy it then. just fyi if you want to get fitted and shop around on the internet. that way you dont waste a trip up there. but they are great people and are super courteous.

all brands of helmets fit differently... just because an XL HJC doesn't fit you, doesn't mean an XL of another brand won't be too big...

it's crazy like that... you'll want to compare before you purchase

Man get a seamstress(sp) tape and measure your dome. Start just above the eyebrow and around the dome. Then when you are looking at different brands look at the size chart. All helmets will fit different for sure. Get what fits you best and is most comfy to you

eximport is off of 59s between bellaire and fondren, southbound side. thoughts on the scorpion helmets? like the exo 1000 with the flip down shade deal? or just get a lid and a smoke visor?
