    Helmet Recommendation

    What type of helmet would you recommend?

    Where is a good place to get it (local or online)?

    Thanks

    I think that the best approach is to go out to OG Racing http://www.ogracing.com and try on a number of different helmets.

    I second going to OG Racing. They spend a lot of time with you and give you good information and education prior to making your purchase decision.

    And after you've picked up a good, comfortable helmet, you can mosey over to All-Sports Grand Prix and take it for a test run (just don't crash test it).

    Just bought a Bell M3 Helmet from OG racing, and found them to be very helpful in making a selection last week.

    Sounds like OG is the best place to start.

    Thanks for all of the help!
