My dealer usually throws in a helmet when you buy a bike from him. The HJC freebee helmets didn't fit so I started trying on helmets. A new '04 model Arai Quantum 2 in Tattoo Red fit great and was really comfortable. After the salesguy offered me a deal on it so they wouldn't have to order me one and then with my credits and discounts, I walked out only $267 lighter. ;)

Re: I think I got a great deal on a helmet today..

Nice! I've been looking at an Arai as well. By the way, what size did you get? I tried on a Medium, and it felt really tight, too tight I think and my head isn't exactly the size of melon either. Do they run a bit small?

My arai signet is smaller than my HJC CL-12. But you can choose a headshape with arai and get a better, closer fit. Signet for oval shapes, quantum for round shapes. There's even one in between but I can't remember the name. The right shape will let you get a snug and theorectically, safer, fit. I only thought my CL-12 fit until I tried the various arai sizes and shapes.
