In my option you can't beat the HJC model AC-3 helmet. You can get them on the web for a little less than 100.00. This helmet has gotten great reviews. They are 3/4 helmets but you can get a flip shield for it also which works great. They Snell and Dot approved. Here is one sitejoded said:i have 200 dollars for two helmets
Don...Here's a little copy and paste from HJC's web site that you might want to read before you make that bet....lolI'm willing to be they are DOT approved but not Snell approved.
