Japanese Santa Claus arrived early this year :grin:

I needed a new helmet (it seems my Snell 2000 Arai and Shoei from the early 2000's are too old to pass track scrutiny these days) and being a sucker for "official merchandise" I decided to scratch my Honda and Yamaha itches with these 2 official OEM parts.

I bought these direct from Japan and saved probably $400 each over an equivalent state side Arai purchase.

In the Yamaha camp - the official YEC color Aria RX7...

And for this years appropriately attired RS pilot, the HRC lid...

Great lids!
I didn’t even know that Yamaha/Honda had their own factory colours that are available.
I might need to get me a YEC RX7.....
Thanks for sharing. Lucky you.
Rgds. :cool:

Well, if you are easily tempted, your bank balance is about to get hammered lol

Web!ke is a great place to spend money frivolously :)

I have resisted pre-ordering many special helmets over the years. IOM TT editions, RC30 anniversary helmet, NSR anniversary helmet and the list goes on.
I am glad I have not been bitten by the helmet collecting bug.

And even after they sell out, many appear for sale from vendors on Yahoo Auctions.

More helmet porn! Thanks.
An RC30 lid, WOW, I wish i had one of those when I owned that bike for nearly 10 years.
Nice to look at something slightly different and departing from the normally chosen.
Thanks.
