    How many helmets do you own?

    How many helmets do you own and why? I am thinking about getting a third helmet and would like a reality check for owning three helmets.

    I have bought 8 helmets since 1970. I still have all but one of them. My first helmet (a stars & stripes) was stolen from my bike in high school.

    2 C2's, used occasionally
    2 C3's used almost daily
    2 Nolan N102's (retired)
    2 Caberg Justissmo's (retired)

    I tried on a System 6 a few weeks ago, and quite like it, but I'm intrigued by the new HJC RPHA Max.

    Anyone have this?

    21 that I still have. Why I don't know. Lined up in my hanger and home. Good for reminising those past rides I would guess.

    Five lined up on the garage shelf: my current helmet, the damaged Shoei that saved my life last year (to remind me that I'm not invincible anymore), two older helmets that don't match my current bike, but I keep them as spares or loaners, and one failed experiment with a cheap modular that won't stay open.
    Good judgment comes from experience, but experience often comes from bad judgment.
