sorry, new to the motorcycle thing. seems i say that alot on here :D

is there any real difference in safety between a $150 hjc and a $600 suomy? is there any need for an 1R rated helmet? the nice suomy's are kevlar i believe, i know that is lighter, but worth the $? or is it mostly a comfort thing? finally, what do some of you use and how do you like it. thanks, paul

Yes, there are differences - but try on as many brands as you can to see which matches your particular noggin... Also, my advice - don't buy a helmet that is too large, make sure it's really snug - it will bed in after a few hours wearing it.... Also, save some $$$ and forget the fancy graphics/paint and spend that money on a higher spec helmet.
