out of a totally random curiousity to see which brand and model of helmets everyone likes, I'm asking what everyone wears and how/why you chose that helmet.

myself, I asked around on a local motorcycle forum, heard good things about the Scorpion EXO400 and 700, and bought an EXO400 and mirrored shield for it.

so far, I like this helmet because its quiet, comfortable, and very light. the mirrored shield makes an incredible difference in how I feel about riding.

I've got a Scopion Exo700. I like it alot. Having tried on a Shoei TZ-R I like the weight a bit better. The TZ-R is quite a bit lighter but I can get 2.5 exo700's for the price of a TZ-R. I don't remember why I chose the 700 over the 400 though. I've tried to find out the differences recently as I'll be buying another helmet soon but couldn't find anything online. Nothing talks about the 400. Everything is always only about the 700.

I've had a Bieffe Pole Position for a while. Nice helmet, great build quality, light weight & a bargain price. Plus, they make F1 racing helmets so I trust the company.

Additional bonus; the helmet is a dead nuts match for my bike's color:
