That's like everything else what you want & who's doing it, I have somewhere around 15 helmets from dirt bike to boat racing over the last 40 years of punishing my body (& wallet) one of my desert truck racing helmets cost a grand & took him 2 months of air brushing, that black one pictured has gold leaf in the lettering & Sylvester the cat rubbing his hands together was my painters idea cause I'm always scheming up crazy ideas while riding that one took all of a day & cost $400 (gold leaf)
It's whatever you want to spend if you do the troy Lee thing it starts around a grand & goes up from there plus a year wait if he's never done one before.

Everytime I walk into cycle gear some tight azz is bickering about helmet costs & me being me blurts out while walking past "if you have a $100 head buy a $100 helmet" witch usually gets me the evil eye from the customer I don't even know.

Or care to

In 1995 this us what happens on a 500XC 6 speed husky when your tapped out on a lake bed when you go "speed blind" thinking you've scrubbed off enough speed before the road crossing in goldfield Nevada & clearing the other side by oh idk 100' doing somewhere around 70 when you THOUGH you were doing 30 hitting the flat ground bottoming out everything including your footpegs then bouncing over the bars into more pavement with your head stopping the fall then braking a collar bone, 3 ribs & my right wrist.
Shoei wanted it back for display purposes but I couldn't part with it (it

So the moral of the story is buy the best helmet money can buy if you can't afford one you shouldn't be on ANY motorcycle.

All I've ever owned is Shoei helmets..... PERIOD!
