    @B7ACKTHORN - Sent a PM to you..

    I went to store to try out Bell Vortex / Nolan N85.

    First shop I went didn't have both but had other nice brands like ARAI, Shoei, AGV and other brands called Bilt, Seven o Seven [this is manufactured by Bell].

    AGV K4 Evo was in same price range ($200) that I was looking for and tried it. Although size large fit my head, due to it's slightly narrow shell shape I felt two or three pressure points on the head and the helmet weight was not evenly distributed across my head. I was disappointed as it looked cool and had some nice graphics...

    So just wanted to try a Shoei that was on sale but it was of size medium....and wow...it was a perfect SNUG [too Snug] fit for my head, had a slight pressure on my cheeks too [to the point that I cannot casually chew a gum without biting my cheeks]. Sales person told that it is how it should be and after a break in period, it will be more comfortable. Little googling also suggested the same...and did all the tests with it as described in

    ...and bought it for $350 right away. It is a 'Shoei RF-1100 Divinity'...

    Why don't you do some post some photos, there are very hungry souls out there, who'd drool about a Shoei, (including me ) as it's always been one of my favorite brands. Please do post some photos if you can, inside out would be really appreciated.

    Yes, got your PM, thanks. Much appreciated.

    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.


    THE END

    Shoei's have amazing fit. The RF-1000 that my wife uses fits to the point like it was made for her head shape.

    Default TIH Lids

    Had been to S.M. Studios over the weekend. A brand called 'TIH' seems to have flooded the market with some really neat, DOT Certified helmets. These include both half-face as well as full-face lids (some models have dual visors) ranging from INR 800 to 3500. The high-end ones come with some useful features like the visor lock, sun visor & back reflectors. The owner, Harmesh, informed me that he expects more designs & stock to flow in by the end of March.

    Just bought a TIH helmet. Haven't taken it for a ride yet.

    What confuses me is that it has THH written on the front and TIH on thr back, like the one in second pic in the above post.

    It seems I cannot post pics to this forum.

    Personally have never seen anyone wear the TIH/THH helmets in person, but have seen them in some photos where some superbikers have work the TIH Helmets in IBW in Goa. That being said, I think THH is renaming their product to TiH for in India some reason, or at least that's what I reckon from their website.

    THH is rebranded as TIH which are manufactured in India, and using dual logos on front and back of both TIH and THH

    Thanks VJ, for that info. I didn't check online. Anyways, I would say the build quality is very good than Vega and most others out there. My choice was split between an LS2 Burn 'something' which had this pump at the jaw which could be used to expand the padding, much like an inflated balloon and this TIH one.

    Went looking for Piston head, but it was out of stock. TIH cost me 3250, where the LS2 is priced at 3400 with only one visor, either clear or tinted.

    TIH has this inner tinted visor which could be pulled up when it's needed. Pull up the clear and use the tinted one or pull up the tinted and use the clear one OR use both. No hassles with changing the visor.

    TIH also has reflectors at the back, white in colour. This also has a visor lock which will lock the visor from being pulled up by wind. With air vents at mouth and temple it's good, I guess. Yet, am writing this without riding wearing it.

    Yes, rightly put. I love all my helmets.

    I love the not-at-all-used-currently-Steelbird helmet so much that I wear it when I'm cutting really big sized onions. Initially, my roomie used to laugh on me, but a recent incident of him cutting those "big" onions made him cry so much that he now wears his Vega (the spare one) alongside me.
    [P.S - Idea taken from an FB pic]

    He he.. Crazy bachelorhood!
