I am currently staring out the window of my office at over 40 of the current model Arai helmets that I own. I don't really want to own them all..... If you'd like to own one on the Forum Friends & Family plan:

I wear Large in everything else man.
Also, I can get this for about $950 and wouldn't ask for it less since you are a dealer trying to keep the lights on yourself buddy. Im not even ready to pull the trigger on it at this VERY moment but perhaps when Fall hits us or tax time!

I will shoot ya a PM later my man. Thanks so much!

Gunny out.............

i loved my spec 1r but dont feel the sr sport is the same shape do you agree? suomy is extremely under rated.

I enjoyed my Spec 1R as well.

The SR Sport def. has a different fit(shape) but with the accessory cheek pads I have found it to fit better. It is the first helmet I have ever had that has no/minimal wind buffeting on the track. I just can't explain how stable the helmet is at speed. The air vent closing and opening is weird at first but the airflow is typical Suomy stellar. The fit and finish is to be expected and the price is half what I paid for the 1R.

I chalked it up to being a new helmet but the SR Sport is the best helmet I have ever had. I can't point to one thing it is just better in every way. Pretty much just like the Panigale

I do agree that Suomy is under rated and overlooked. OK by me, because I don't want what everyone else has anyway.
