I have to travel a lot on my motorcycle due to my job. I had a helmet(cracked) before, but it's of no use so, I am planning to buy a new helmet. I have seen some reviews about Safest Helmets, but I am confused between VEGA and HJC C70,
I found both amusing, but still, I have to buy one. So can anyone give me some personal experience of it? Which is better?

Great subject.......
I always rode with Bell. Not sure how they rate now. I will never forget my Eddie Lawson Bell,,,,,,I loved that Helmet.
Not sure if it is still going on but a few months back they, (cycle gear) were giving you 150 credit to turn in your old helmet for a high end bucket.
Makes a $500 helmet suddenly approachable.

Just a heads up for the thread starter and others....The link has been removed.Not sure whether it was a spam attempt or not.Time usually tells.

Update.
I'm disappointed.I was looking forward to more posts from Vamos.Says he's from Madrid but his internet connection is in Pakistan.
I still stand by my helmet recommendations.

I like the Shoei half helmet and an AK88 is my usual hat to wear. I have a Bell open face for my ears during toy runs. The toy runs never run on a nice day.

Sucks when you find out your helmet blew open, I've heard the ribbed kind are stronger, give those a try

Well I have endeavored to wear the best that I could afford. The Shoei half helmet is a hefty few $$, but it has a neck curtain if it gets cool.

I wear a Shoei J Cruise when I commute on the bike. It is a 3/4 and the face shield is pretty nice on the highway. Around town I have a Harley half-helmet that I wear. There isn't much worse than getting caught on the highway in rain without a face shield.

I use a schuberth C3 Pro modular, I love it, it pretty quiet, and very light, the sun shade that pulls down is very handy I don't even need sun glasses.
I use ear buds hooked up to my phone with Spotify.
These helmets are 700 new. I found mine on ebay new for 500 dollars.
