    I had been away from motorcycles for a couple of decades when I decided it was time to start riding again about 7 or 8 years ago. I came across a 1983 Honda VF750F Interceptor not too far from me and had always loved the look of those back in the day. I had no riding gear at the time and wasn't sure I was going to want the bike so didn't want to go and quickly invest in a bunch of gear without doing any research. But, I also knew that I was going to need a helmet to satisfy local law enforcement if I ended up liking the bike and buying it. So, I went to our local Goodwill and found an old helmet that looked a lot like this...same color and everything. The padding was essentially non-existent and was probably more of a danger to wear than not wearing a helmet at all. But, I bought it for like $5. I ended up wearing it to ride that Interceptor home. I wish I would have taken a pic. Me riding that bike wearing the sparkling blue 70s helmet and my business casual attire from work. Needless to say I quickly went and did the research to start buying some real gear. I've gone through a few helmets as I've honed in on what I like. I just bought my first Shoei. A GT Air 2. Expensive, but it is the highest quality helmet I've owned (previous were Scorpion and HJC).

    20190515_192045.jpg20190515_192115.jpg20190515_192144.jpg Carlos got his new lid and mine showed up today. HJC RPHA 11 Pro Carbon. Unbelievable lid, full race system. Emergency side pods that I hope I NEVER have to use, EMS can pull em in case of a get off that leaves the rider incapacitated and the helmet can be removed safely and quickly.

    Thanks gentlemen, 3lbs 1 ounce. Sportbike track gear gave it rave reviews and Revzilla said it is hands down the BEST race helmet money can buy.

    I looked into it and wow! That's a whole list of legit 'race' features at a price attainable by us regular humans. Might be my next lid when the AGV times out soon

    ^^^^^^ Shaughn, I think I would suggest the HJC RPHA ST 70 instead it's more of a street/track helmet. The 11 is full blown race, no power windows (drop down internal visor), and it's shape is not designed for 3/4 street riding position. To be perfectly honest I think the 70 is a much better looking lid. If I didn't need full race specs I would've bought the 70 all day long.Screenshot_2019-05-18-23-36-40.jpg That is one damn good looking helmet!!!!!!
