Default Half Helmets

I bought a new HJC CL 17 last year and its great when its cold and the lady uses it when shes on the back, but I was wondering what everyone else straps to their noggin as far as half helmets go. Most of the time i have been going without but have longer trips planned this year and probably wouldnt be a poor idea to have one sitting up top.

So what model half helmet do you guys wear, as always, pics are fantastic.

I took a chance on a $55 helmet from Daytona helmets after reading some reviews to find the least mushroom/bobble head looking helmet.

And for $55 I don't think I could have gotten a better helmet. It is very bare bones but construction seems good, used for the past year now and no issues with it.

Those Daytona Helmets look pretty good. I've got a half helmet polo style I got from J&P cycles... I just can stand helmets... however IF I can find a good fitting 3/4 that doesn't make me look like a Space Ball... I'll probably get one of those. I don't know... I still don't wear the one I have now.

I have a Z1R ZRP-2M I picked up at the Hardley dealer a couple years ago after I bought the XR. I really wanted a half-helmet, but I have a very round head and round face, and almost everything made me look like one of those little Mushroom Kingdom guys from Mario Bros. This one actually worked out pretty well for me. I imagine if you found one someplace that didn't have the Hunnert-Dollar logo out front, you could get it for a bit less than $80.

You can call me Billy. Or Luci. But don't call me Shirley.

Mine:
2011 Cross Roads, crimson red
Lloyd'z ATS, IAV, VFC-III. Vic "High Performance" air filter. Ness Big Honkers. Funsies.

Hers
2015 Vegas 8-Ball

I really like the look of the Head Trip Helmets but the price is pretty steep compared to others, I have a skid lid dealer right down the street from me but i have heard that they weren't too great. but for 35 bucks they seem hard to beat, i need to go down and atleast try one on, anyways those are the types of brain buckets im looking at. Head Trip isnt a dot helmet but then again, neither is no helmet. id like to put on on without looking like i have a mushroom on my head.

Well, not really what I wanted, but it will get you there. Spendy for a mini at about $120.00 some, (shipped). Here is a pic. I'm 6'3" 250+/- I'm the little guy! I sort of have an egg shaped melon, and this lid is really comfortable!

I've worn Fulmer helmets for years. I'm now wearing the 95B, I like having the drop down shades. My wife also switched to Fulmer and wears the 92, zip on neck and ear cover for early/late rides and she likes the visor, you can even get a snap on face shield if you want.

I find them light and fit me great.

Parts added to make her louder, faster and more mine.
Stage 1 filter and pipes, Lloydz VFIII & ATW.
Clearwater Darla, LED GLO, emergency lights and siren.
