I got my patch yesterday. I thought it was some sort of ticket when I saw the envelope. Thankfully, just a patch inside.

I like the AFX helmet a lot and for the price it is fantastic! I had an AGV street helmet before that cost twice as much but was half as good.

I even bought another for my wife, and one for the kid. I guess we have three!

Bilt?

I saw the Bilt helmet in a magazine yesterday and it looked pretty good. It is one of the only Moto style helmets that has an additional internal tinted visor. I love my road helmet with that option so I will order one tomorrow. On Sale for $99 too.

I am not a rich man. So I must spend my money wisely. But the extra money I spent on a Shoei RF1100 was money well spent.
Best venting street helmet I have ever owned.

That does look nice. I do find on the AFX with the dark flip down that it can be sort of hard to clean and when both get bug smear it sort of sucks. I think the internal tinted visor would be really nice. I'll have to remember this one.

Bilt

On Hot days I leave the external visor up and just leave the internal tinted one down. Under 45mph it works great. I would assume that this would work the same.

As a reference, I run an ICON Variant and like it a lot although they retail for $350 and up. 2 years ago my local dealer had a new one in the box for $130 so I swiped it up and have been loving it since. Good deals are hard to find on these now...

That is the Halo helmet, correct?

That is a good deal for that helmet!

I put a few photos from the Rustic Road ride here and you can see some shots of Zaboo's and my helmets.
