I'm thinking I should get a new helmet this spring... The old cheap-o HJC has been a good lid for me, but I have had it for a long time too!

I am really looking for something with an internal sun visor. You know, because I only get to actually ride to breakfast and bike night....so I need the versatility

Scorpion Exo 500 seems like a great value, and the 1100 looks nice, but a tad on the spendy side.

Modular? I don't think I need it, and I'm afraid it'll be noisy.

Anyone have experience with Shark or AGV helmets? There are several AGV's that I think look really cool, and the Shark lids are a bit expensive, but look to have nice features and good reviews.

I have an EXO-500, and like it a lot. It's lighter than the EXO-1000 that preceded it.

Biggest thing is finding one that fits your noggin just right; don't get wrapped up in one particular helmet until you have a chance to try on a few. You'll find one or two that just "feel right". That's the most important criterion.

hello huskers,

I am looking for some help recovering an artifact placed by Dux in the game www.Venatu.com My name is Wade, I am in the USAF, and this is not spam.

if you check out http://www.venatu.com/archi.html you will see me on my old ride.. just traded it for a K1300S. Then a dude from Tampa just bought it... back on topic...

My wingman runs the clues,
I operate the map
... and then we need a local runner.

I need someone near Kearny or in Kearny to check out a lead for me! please help.

PM me if you are interested! there is a $333.33 cut in the prize monies if you find it. hook me up!
