Go to a good Bike Gear shop like Motorcycles Unlimited or 2 Wheel Toyz that has a large selection and also knowledgeable people. If you are close to Dallas or San Antonio go to a MotoLiberty. You will not find a shop with more knowledge about the gear they carry IMO.

Don't know if it's current or 100% accurate but here's a table describing among other things the internal shape of the helmets listed. Hope it helps.

i think this makes him look human. you always get people thinking they soooooo perfect, well your not. at least Obama was cool enough to be himself. thats why i look up to him, he's like an average black male but with intelligence. -Actual Quote from a Barack Obama supporter
