I know I should but I don't wear a helmet 100% of the time, so, I don't put that much $ into them and I am a cheapskate to begin with. That being said was wondering if anybody has the Vega half shell helmet with the zip off cover that goes over your ears and has places for headsets. My local Honda dealer has them at reasonable prices. Also was wondering how close a match the dark red helmet is to the '08 dark red metalic wing.

I have a few of the Vega Shorty helmets. None of mine have the zip off lining but I love the line they have. For me the Vega fit the best.

I still have a HJC 1/2 helmet with the zip off leather. I like it very much. It is comfortable. I lean toward protection now days and don't ware it. but it sure is better than nothing !

I picked up Vega "shorty" at bike week.
I have a BUNCH of helmets and so far and right now I really like this one the most.
Not a zipper ear piece but a velcroed in one
... doubt it would be good for headphones but it does keep the wind noise out pretty good.

I wear it ALL the time... it fits better than anything I have.
I've just finished some very long rides with it and have more planned before I get back home (still on the road).
I can wear it ALL day and almost forget it is on
(wore it TWO back to back 27 hour rides)
... the less fatigue factor I have with it probably does not make up for the lack of protection from a full face
... but for now it's the one I'm using and enjoying riding more.

I've the one with the carbon fiber "look" ...

I've been tempted to get one of those half helmets but know better. It gets here in GA with a full face so I opted for the HJC symax II flip up modular instead. I was at a motorclce shop and they had a few of the half helmets. The Vega felt real cheap and uncomfortable to me. The had a few of the Scorpion half helmets and were very comfortable. A few years back I had I Shoei St. Cruz that was very comfortable but sold it because I just didn't feel like it was a smart way to ride.
I haven't tried one but the HJC half helmets look good as well. HJC are very well made helmets at a great price.

I am on my third Vega 1/2 helmet. I like them alot. My latest one has a zip in storm curtain, others used velcro. I think I got it at J&M Corp for about $50 or $60.

Might be interested. You didn't say what size yours was. What do you want for it? Any reason why you didn't use it?
