1 Shoei RF200
1 Beiffe Mod-4 (trusty service!!)
2 Nolan N100 flip front - mediocre fit
1 Schuberth Concept - never fit right - Americans have ears.
1 HJC Open face - circa 1992
1 HJC Symax - retired
1 HJC CL-Max
1 Shoei X-11
1 Shoei J-wing
The last 3 are the only active service helmets. The rest are in great shape, but unused for several years.
Another timeout. Will I ever learn ?

6, and expanding:
1 - Arai Quantum/e FF to match my old Triumph/new KTM 950
1 - HJC CL-12 FF to match my Speed Triple (impulse buy, stupid!)
1 - HJC Symax flip-up for the wife (like new!)
1 - HJC cheapo FF kids helmet, just in case
1 - HJC Moto in Gray, now the "loaner" dirt helmet (smells great!)
1 - Scorpion Moto in Orange to match the KTM's
Coming soon - new Scorpion EX400 FF to replace the Arai and HJC street lids; they are amazing helmets and a deal! Also, I'll likely add the Arai XD sometime in the next few months. I need to do something as I'm out of shelves for helmets in the garage; might need a bigger garage!
Just another Dharma Bum, drifting in the void
