Spammers are parasites making their living off other people's efforts - so why would anybody expect quality of service from them.
The other problem spam is links that don't really lead you to anything useful but generate "hits" on a site that makes money from the advertising on that site as well as making payments back to the spammer that posted the links.

If I felt that a particular company was legitimately offering a worthwhile service to people, I would consider letting them ride, at least for a short while, as the only "effect" is to help out forum members that might be looking for such a service.

An example is that we have several members that operate businesses that do provide useful service to our members. Clearly they are making money out of the forum, but the flipside is that they are also providing good service to the members. For me (I can't speak for the forum owners though), that is a satisfactory and fair return for both sides. I keep a close eye on these guys and would not hesitate to jump on them at the first sign of anything less than sterling service.

Replace the helmet and don't skimp. Go Arai or Shoei and look at comp-acc.com for closeouts. Online you'll get a helmet that hasn't even been tried on...even better (or fumbled and dropped at Cycle Gear). It's how I buy mine now. At a dealer you never know if the thing's hit the deck and been put right back on the shelf. I wanna virgin lid. Fresh outta the box. And I won't wear anything but the Big Two. For twenty-five years.

I think they also have wide collection of brands until I found HJC and there are also affordable ones.

Is it safe to buy helmets online? How should I know if it fits me well?


BTW, stay as far away from Jafrum as possible. I used to deal with them alot when they were a new company. They have grown to the point where customer service, or getting your order right is no longer the focus. They have become unable to get your order correct. The last three times I dealt with them they screwed the order up, and I gave them the opportunity to fix it. The first of the three times they did. The second time I allowed them a bye because of all the times they got it right, even when they didn't give a crap about getting it right. The third time, they screwed it up, and would not even respond to me. I like baseball and they were allowed three strikes. I will continue to warn people about their company growing to big to give a crap anymore.

I have no doubt you are a real person, they haven't yet developed spam bots with such low ethics as you.
But _which_ person are you of the numerous names you have signed up with?

Don't play the innocent.
You sign up here every couple of weeks, post some innocuous posts in other's threads and then throw in your links.
If you wish to continue wasting your hours doing this feel free to do so.
I have to check through the new members accounts regularly anyway so it's no extra work for me to keep deleting you.
But I will continue directing your spam links to that thread to disuade members from making the mistake of dealing with you at all.
The more you post, the more links will direct to your suspect business practices. If you wish I will also direct your posts to similar links in other places around the internet.

If you continue to spam this forum instead of paying to advertise your crap I will continue to direct every one of your links to that thread to ensure nobody is unfortunate to ever end up at your site.

lol, call it a hunch, but judging by the grammar, I don't think "donna" is who she says she is...

if I'm wrong... Icon all the way. It's 112* outside right now. Need all the ventilation I can get, and Icons have the most that I've seen

But the best helmet for YOU is the one that fits properly to your own shape of head.
