Between the two of us, Mrs. Wahoo and I have at least 4 HJC full-face helmets.

CL-16's for the Wing (with headsets installed). I'm not sure what model #'s I have for Strom.

Very comfortable (for us) and quite functional as well.

So, using the $10 head analogy, I guess mine must be worth somewhere around $129.95.

I really like my Bell helmets. The most recent one is an RS1 which is quiet and really comfortable.

I really wish Bieffe mad a helmet with an eye port large enough for motorcycle use. I used the SA rated helmets in the car, and have never found one as light and comfortable as they are. They weren't all that expensive either.

I had a Bell and it was nice. They seem like a good value.

I think it was Bell that started the "if you have a $10 head" advertising campaign wasn't it?

Don't know about that, it was something my dad always said.

I like the HTC helmets, just have never found one I could wear for more than 15 minutes! Hated paying for the Neotech, but it felt so good on my head, right out of the box.

I had a nasty crash back in 1990 while wearing a Shoei, I'm sure it saved my life! There's a spot about 2in dia on the back, where spine and scull meet, ground about 1/3 through. Keep in in the garage as a reminder...

I remember when Bell used that in their ads...
