My New Helmet

Well, after waiting almost 2 weeks it is finally here My brand new Arai RX-7 corsair

kind of plain looking until you get it in the sun, then it sure brightens up

I was custom fitted by Robert at the service pavllion, who I have talked about before. He is AWSOME customer service, selection and the right products a HUGE to him.

Well enough yapping Here is the lid, It is the Matsudo cobra, I was going to go with the Roberts rep, but...I liked this one better hope you all like it...Now I guess I don't have any excuses not to come to grattan next year

Oh yeah don't mind the mess on the table, we are on the move again

Re: My New Helmet

I just got back from my first ride with it...I have to say I am impressed, while it is considerably louder than my old helmet it surpasses it in EVERY other feild by leaps and bounds

It breaths very nicely and all I can say is it is sure nice to have a helmet that fits properly.

It is still very snug but, I have only had it on for about 20 minutes so I am sure that it will loosen up after a couple of rides

Over all, I am super happy Can't wait for the rest of my goodies to come home

Re: My New Helmet

Nice looking lid. What was the sticker if you don't mind? PM me if you don't want to share in the open.

Re: My New Helmet

I love the metal flake affect, looks so sharp on a helmet. Never thought I'd like something that was that "loud" but at least two of my current lids have flake in them.
