I'm heading back up to Thunderhill this weekend, and I'd rather not take a chance on not getting a helmet to fit my big head.<p>Anybody know of any good places to get a helmet in SF Bay area, preferably South Bay? And one that would have a bunch in stock?<p>-PhilJ

Phil, I got Sean G a helmet at Honda of Fremont. They have a pretty big shop. They are located on the frontage road that parallels the 880 Freeway, just south of Stevenson Blvd. You can see them when you go north on the 880. They are on the west side of the 880 freeway just down the street from Costco. They carry Arai, HLC, and maybe Shoei. Try them out...the price was right for the one I got Sean....<p>Steve S.<br>97 2.8QM<p>P.S. Don't blow those boxsters away too bad....they may not come out and play again.<br>
I got my helmet from Bell Motorsports in Oakland. In shopping around, I found that they had the best prices on helmets. I got a Bell Sport II in fiberglass for $262. They have a huge selection of Bell helmets and some Bieffe helmets among other race related stuff.<p>There number 510-531-2248.

At some point I'm going to have to own up to the fact that my well-loved clam shell helmet (it's a BMW helmet to boot) is not legit and get a new one.<p>Are you guys getting helmets just for car use? If I'm going to replace my helmet, I'll want another motorcycle helmet as I'm the occaissonal passenger on the evil husband's motorcycle, but I don't do enough of either to justify two helmets. Are there any do's or don'ts relative to buying a motorcycle helmet that will be used in the car?<p>Sharon
The only drawback of getting a motorcycle helmet is that the material used in the lining of the helmet is not fire retardant. If it is SA95 rated then it's fire retardant. I think all motorcycle helmets are rated M95. Hope this helps.
