Has anyone found a helmet that does well with the krt green? I like it from a high visibility stand point and, since I need a new helmet, I think I might go this route. Anyone have a model that seems to match well or accent it well?

Purely a vanity question...I know!

Shoei x-14 Laverty




Also, I did some research as well for green helmets...here is a list that I composed before I select my Laverty:

Perfect! I anticipated a pile of "who cares...it is safety equipment" posts. I really appreciate the help.

I keep eyeing this one... but I don't know if I can justify the update just for the color...
ok ok..if we want..we can justify anything we buy...:grin::nerd::grin:

If I had TiaMc's money, I would probably be eyeing the X-14...:)

Helmet colour is always a very important issue.

That's a nice helmet. The RF-1200 would be more suited for the N400. A nice safe sport helmet without the aerodynamics for insane speeds. And I think the X-14 is also lighter, hence the big difference in price.

This is what you need Fuby, Its a modular helmet - Shoei NeoTec watch the video review NeoTec II Revzilla I wear last yrs model and love it.

The front flips up so you can talk to the girls at Arbys, Eat & Drink while you ride.. You dont have to take the helmet off ever.

Ofcourse..we have to check the safety factor besides the Graphics...

Worth EVERY PENNY imo. I realized the other day...when I was stopped at a light, people were slowly inching forward in their vehicles to get a look. I attribute it to my helmet and my bike MATCHIN'! It's hawt I must admit. When i see my helmet resting on my bike i'm like "Snapppp! Yass!" LOL!

Also, it feels amazinggg...air flow is wonderful. Just make sure all of your vents are open (ofc).

Only thing is the Shoei x-14 doesn't have a tinted drop down lens...so I bought the transition lens that goes with it. Really simple to replace. But that transition lens was freakin pricey tho bruh. If you get the transition lens with the helmet you gonna pay $1k. Transition face shield was $160 and I got that after the discount.

Lovely! But it doesn't match that Kawi green tho.

At 550.00 cheaper than a x-14...umm yeah..I can see some green that matches in the Airmada Lepricon (it certainly has more Green than Mr Mike's black helmet..):grin::wink::grin:..

I am sure the X-14 must be worth it... but, for a person who use to never wear a helmet (granted, the safety first Gods are right) .. then a beanie(laws go into effect)... I am just not a 1000.00 helmet buyer... even if I believe my head is worth every penny.. there are only so many pennies...lol

Then there is always the 30 dollar option for Kaw Green with a black helmet.. a Fur cover..:)
