That's what I said - It is NOT reflective of ANYBODY's individual situation... But statistics are offered all the time expecting/demanding that YOU (yes, YOU) should live by them...

Just got the Bell Moto III, $129 J&P Cycle, originally priced on the upside of $300.








Fits my slightly oblong head perfectly.

Shoei RF-SR in White. I went in to get the best fitting full face I could find with pinlock and SNELL rating. I have not owned any other helmets so, I only have the Bell an the MSF course to compare it to. And, I would say this is a nice bucket for sure. Being a geek i am looking forward to their new HUD model coming soon.
