I think i am getting a K3 or a Bell. Motorcycle superstore has a helmet going on right now.

Also check out Sportbike track gear they have a great selection of helmets.

I really like my rf-1000. I think you can even get the rf-1100 for around $450 these days

I love my Shoei RF-1100, and the Qwest models are also an option. I own a X-12, but I tend to wear the RF-1100 more often since it tends to be much quieter.

^ your x-12 shield might need to be adjusted, it vents better so when they are open it should be louder. X-12 martyr was 450 at motorcycles508.com. I wear shoei street an dirt, fits my head shape better than arai/suomy.

find yourself a helmet that fits you correctly FIRST. then start looking at what is available in that helmet. once you find a helmet that fits you correctly, let me know.

just a note on these "low priced" top of the line helmets. a good bit of them are much cheaper than you can buy new, but you give up time when you buy them. if the helmet you buy is $450 and it has been on a shelf for 2 years, you only have 3 years of life left in that helmet. that comes out to $150 per year for that helmet. that means you can pay up to $750 for a brand new helmet with no time on it (5 years @ $150 per year) and be in the same spot. just something to think about.
