Here's the opinion of Timberwoof's in his Motorcycle FAQ:

The best helmet for you is one that you can afford, that fits, and that you'll wear every time you get on the motorcycle. A Snell and DOT rated helmet is just as safe as a one ... but not as comfortable on long trips. Just because a helmet isn't required in your state, don't assume that the laws of physics are any different. Get a good helmet and wear it always.

AnswerI always buy the best helmet I can, and only those that are certified for Race Track use as well, you cant put a price on your head. Living in Europe, I always buy "ACU Gold" stickered helmets, certified for racing.

If only I could afford an Arai, I would get one, so what if they're from ?350/470? or more, they have the toughest testing per batch of helmets, than any other helmet manufacturer. MotoGP, F1 & Indy Cart Racers use Arai (or Craft - but they're not road legal over here)

P.S. I don't work for Arai, I just want one.....

AnswerThe answer to this question is pretty easy... Is your head worth 24 dollars or is it worth 250 dollars?

My suggestion on buying a helmet is buy one that fits comfortable for you. I would also suggest buying two or more helmets.

One: Buy a full faced helmet. Upside: it cuts down on outside noise and provided the best protection during an accident Downside: They can be very hot in the summer and heavy during long rides.

Two: Buy a half faced helmet. Upside: They provide a level of protection but not as much protection as a full faced helmet. They are cooler in hot weather and if you wear glasses like I do it is easier to put them on. Downside: They don't offer much protection for your face in you are in accident. For long rides you can have problems with your hearing.

Three: Flip front is a very good helmet Upside:provides more protection then a half face and are more comfortable in hot weather. Since you can lift it while waiting for red lights or other long stops. Downside: They can be more noisy and cost more then full face or half faced helmets.

AnswerDon't lust after an expensive helmet (Schuberth S1 Carbon= £750-£800 ), get the one that fits properly and has all the right safety stickers(kite mark and ACU Gold). A full face will protect your jaw and chin. Flip front are great if you are going in and out of checkpoints or working as a courier/riding instructor, but they are more noisy than a full face. More mechanics=more noise. Never use a helmet that has gone past it's replacement date.

The laws are different from place to place. You might not be legally required to wear a helmet. But for what they cost, I think they're a good idea. Even a minor head injury isn't much fun.

It is dangerous to use a used helmet, it could be dented or broken and you wouldn't know. A new helmet is much much safer to use also there is no hair stuck in it.

It depends on what store your going to, and how much tax they charge.

The ranges are about $250-$999
