I've owned a lot of helmets and I can say that this is hands down the best helmet I've ever had. if you happen to be in MotoLiberty, scope out the OGK helmets then order one from www.ogk-helmets.com and save over $100.

I thought you were going to say that you had boutght something like this Vemar Limited Edition VSR 1SC Carbon Fiber Helmet (http://www.motorcyclecloseouts.com/detail.asp?PRODUCT_ID=VM1013-01). I saw it at Motorcycle Closeouts (http://www.motorcyclecloseouts.com/) in KC when we were there a couple of weeks ago. It is a nice helmet, but not $680 nice.

I much preferred the Caeberg Justissimo Modular Helmet (http://www.motorcyclecloseouts.com/detail.asp?PRODUCT_ID=NM601-1000) that they had, but not in my size. I like the integral smoke visor inside the clear one.

I bought one of those and it seems really well made. One day I will get to try it on a motorcycle.

It would go great with a Tuono Carbon........

I liked it, but the price is more than I want to spend.

Kneedraggers.com just had a closeout on that Vemar Carbon for $300 a helmet.

As for the OGK FF4, it's lightweight, with quality construction, a supremely comfortable liner, great ventilation and it seems to cut through the wind with great resistance to buffeting in comparison to the Shoeis and Arais that I have tried to include the X-11 and RX-7. Not to mention I got the helmet with deluxe bag, tearoffs, and spare dark smoke visor shipped for 265.

Yeah. I got it from Kneedraggers for $300. They had about 100 for sale and most were bought out by another store. They sold out in a couple days.

I went from an HJC to an Arai and was amazed by the greater comfort and lighter weight.

That Tuono in the pic is sweet!! It's the first one that really appeals to me. The normal one's just don't do it for me for some reason... Of course, if I rode one... :twisted:

this is one of the prime reasons I spend more money on a helmet

I ride every day and I ride a lot, so the light weight, free flowing, and greater comfort is of utmost importance to me

but they all generally protect your head roughly the same!

I wanted to get one of those carbon helmets but they only had them in large and XL...and I wear a small....those things looked cool (I still want to see yours philip!)

Back in August I picked up a silver Scorpion exo700 with two sheilds on Ebay for $162.50 shipped.

I tried on all the Arai's, Shoei's, Icon's and this helmet is all that they are except for the price.

Removable machine washable liner, cannot fog it up no matter how hard you breath, vents so much that I would not recommend it for contact wearer because it will glue your lenses to your lenses, sheild swap in a few seconds with a nifty twisty system.

Needless to say I love this bucket. Although I do miss the flip convenience.

Next trip might be the Caberg Justissimo with the topgun sunshield.

:scratch:

I've worn Arai's for the past 10 years or so (shoei's 15 before that) and they have a great feeling interior but light? Not the quantums and signets I've worn.

Funny, I finally put aside my "snobby" attitudes and bought an HJC cl-max a couple of months ago. My first impressions were not too good until it broke in. I recently spent about 11 hours in the saddle and on my final gas stop of the day I decided to make a phone call home after filling up. It was then I realized I needed to take my helmet off (it's a flip up design). Normally I can't get a helmet off quick enough at any stop; especially at the end of the day. Also, my neck wasn't sore as it's much better aerodynamically when I turn my head at speed. Great price too.

If you like the HJC, go try on a Scorpion, they are all that and a bag of chips baby! Not a flip though

Actually I did and found them to be nice, comparable to a shoei I'd say. But I was wanting to try a flip-up after strong pressuring from a fellow rider/friend. Try one if you haven't. They are so **** convenient that I don't want to wear a full face again.

Do you mind sharing where you got it in the US? Thanks!
