    Where and how do you obtain them?

    Four motorcycle helmets - two in current use, one bycycle helmet, one ski helmet, four retired firefighting helmets (plus two that I still use that are actually owned by my employer).

    I can't wait to retire and have a fixed income. The one I have now is always broke.

    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.

    Trips to Germany until the last one, which I found on MOA Flea Market.

    You can order one here: http://www.designerhelmets.com/index.php

    And, BMW dealers sell them in Canada.

    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?

    I only have 1 helmet in use which is an Arai Vector. I have all my previous helmets except the Arai that backed into with my truck. I was so pissed, I had to throw it away to keep from looking at a reminder of a stupid moment. Doh!

    No longer in use.
