    Who's gotten or getting a new Lid for 2017 ? what brand and why.I'm staying w/ SHOEI,the RF-1200 will be my choice.I also want the Transition face shield but at $ 170.00 it may have to wait,lol..Head safety does not come cheap in my book...

    I got a Bell Star for Christmas this year, and after wearing it a few times, I just had to concede the fact that it just doesn't fit the shape of my head well. I got a big melon, and it constantly pinches me at my ear lobes. I went back to my Shoei R-12 after that.
    Funny part is I tried on a Bell dirtbike helmet and loved it, bought one right after I tried it on.
    Braaap!

    I gotta Bell Star Carbon with the transition shield on sale a few years back. The transition shield is well worth it. The helmet doesn't fit my dome quite well but its sufficient.
    Ride safe and Have a nice day!

    It's time's like this that we soul search for the right lid.Make,style,paint and trust.We search every where at every stop to find price ranges and such.I must say there were times i would grab that Bilt lid and say the price is right then for some un-known reason i put it down,lol.You see experience takes hold and know's my head deserves a lot more than price.I have my list of makers to come and to show you all then maybe you can show your 5 top makers..At one time i had 4-5 but there all gone except the 1st one my 07 Shoei,I can't let it go,weird how that works..This is the 2017 Shoei Flagger RF-12 in the pics..
