Ah right. I'm West Midlands. Fluked my yellow one from 30 mins away in Warwick. I did score a 2004 from Wales last year (A1 Motorcycles in Flint)

I guess you're looking forward to some good weekend weather now!!

I swear by Sportsbikeshop for both range and price. However, I haven't been to a physical store, I do mine online.

I've been fortunate. My first HJC I purchased from a bike shop. Later changed to AGV K3 /K5 and found a slight variation, but still a good fit. Some people will try at a shop and then order online. Not very fair, but that's what happens.

Sportsbikeshop does have a good return and exchange policy though.
