Default Where can I try DOT helmets on in UK?

Hi guys, I'm looking to buy an open face helmet and like the biltwell, bell, fulmer, daytona helmets but having tried various brands of uk/eu helmets I know the sizes differ greatly between brands. And as no melon is the same shape this also comes into account!

I am aware the DOT helmets are illegal on UK roads and also aware it is illegal to sell them as a road helmet in the UK.

Does anyone know anywhere that sells (as novelty helmets)any of these helmets in the south of UK?

Thanks in advance for any info or help

P.S did I hear correctly on the news that we may have a great British summer on the way?!

If you can't find anywhere then use the net and take advantage of distance selling rules!
Have you tried Davida? http://davida.co.uk/

Summer? is that still on backorder?

We should start to see light at the end of the tunnel by the start of next week so 'they' say..wont hold my breath though!

Ive tried on the davida lids but still too egg head, and I know I am trading safety for looks, which doesnt sit that comfortable with me, I have my eye on a 'daytona cruiser' and found a uk seller so will cost me £10 to return if its wrong so not too bad, could cost me that to drive out to a shop and back to try some on I guess.

Where abouts in Leeds do you ride out?

I grew up near wakefield and doncaster and spent a winter in Yeadon last year.

I got a nice lid, an Origine from a friendly potential supplier http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct...txX2_Wse1ivueg

If you see anything on our site www.getgeared.co.uk then we do Freepost returns and also free postage on size/style swaps etc.

Best fitting lid i ever tried was the Arai Freeway, at the moment i am wearing a Shark Speed-R, Arai chaser, Held Heros and my Origine Primo.

As for riding in Leeds its work work work followed by more work but i only get to a 80 mile radius in any direction especially now i have raised my tank 2" got mates in Barnsley so sometimes its a ride! Other than that its all northwards! Going to try Manor cafe in layburn soon.
