Ducati & Arai Helmets
2 Attachment(s)
Had to do a double take on this 2014 helmet they partnered up on together since it is so friggin close to identical to the 2010 Arai they put out when I bought my 1198s Corse! Except for the red/green stripes it looks damn close wouldn't ya say?

Wish they would at least use the high end version of something like the Pista on their stuff since its already a damn grand too! Thank goodness Im not a helmet collector like MarkNYC is, or even some of you others!

Hey, matter of fact - lets see who has the most helmets here on this forum!

Go ahead and post up the number you own - and the most favored of them. Sound cool to you? You can even post a photo of them ALL if you wish, which would be wicked cool to see someone with like 100 or something! (out of my TWO I like the Bell Star better!) lmfao = 2! :eek:

BTW- yeah yeah, I know this crap has already been done somewhere in here I assume, but WTF - nothing else is going on ya know?
Id seriously like to start the Bike of The Month contest like Org does and the winner gets $50 Amazon Gift Card (where that comes from is unknown to me!) :)

others i have had. my favorite helmet was the suomy spec 1 r extream wall st edition. felt like it was custom made for my head but suomy changed their shell shape and its no longer an option. My favorite helmet now is the shoei x12 its the closest fit to the suomy and love the way it feels. A close second is the bell star. i love the features and only helmet i ride in the summer (transition shield and air flow). you can ride all day and night without carrying a shield. It would be number 1 if it fit slightly better but its perfect for the street. my least favorite and yes i have had an rf1000 and have an rf1200 and had a bell rs 1 (i say that because they are allegedly a step down from the premier helmets) is the arai. just doesnt do it for me.

Maybe Its time to delete it. hmmmm

I have a ton of helmets as well, but I cannot take pics of them as I'm at work. I have a defense however... I buy lids for my kids and the girlfriend as well.

None of them are as nice as what you guys have... I'm clearly in the wrong career field! :)

i have the bell star as well (cerswinke, not carbon) great helmet, well ventilated.

until last saturday i was sporting a white Schuberth S1, which, well, did his job well.

now i have a schuberth SR1 on order, found one for 299 euros, minus 19% Vat, plus 36 Euros shipping. = $350 :D http://data.shopgate.com/itemsById/6...2864/0_440.jpg

could have gone with the technology for 379 euros, but since i mostly take it to the track, i didn't bother.
