Yeah, saw that last night.. Pretty tight stuff...

Again, the Japanese always get what we want first... Then, when we're able to get it, they got something else that's cooler...

Later,
Leo.

Sweet helmet! But at over $700 I'll pass.

They had helmets similar to that Momo one for about $50 in the department stores while I was in Japan, they were for mopeds though haha

Now that is perfect. I just have a " thing " about open face helmets after seeing disasterous results first hand. Just the thought of an air bag in the face is enough to make most people go full face .

just curious... why are people concerned about cost when your talking about your life? Is it not worth 800 to you? (not just talking about this helmet)
