    dammit, snagged a deal on motorcyclecloseouts.com. got a 280 dollar helmet for 150 + 10 shipping.

    i went to a local store to see what size for that partictular model i needed. needed an xl, so thats what i ordered.

    helmet came today and its too big, so i gotta send it back, then have them send me another one, costing me another 20 or so in round way shipping. :mad:

    and i found out the helmet has some stupid azn cartoony chick on the back that wasnt seen from the angles of the photo i looked at. i guess that can be covered with some type of sticker, cuz the graphics look fuckin sick in person otherwise.


    :hs: more than i wanted to spend

    Wait, you paid $160 for a KBC? Its $140 at cycle gear and prob 10 to ship it.
    You should have got a scorpion for that price.

    what the fuck is your problem? you dont think i know cyclegear is online, fuck you dumbshit. i know how to shop around and i had already been on cyclegears site days before your stupidass made a comment. its a 2005 model helmet and thus quantities are limited, and cyclegear doesnt have this helmet in large.


    fuck, youre stupid.
