    After reading the the article below, I _didn't_ want a Snell approved helmet, but one that met the European standards.

    I bought an HJC helmet, (model FG-14) at Paddock, in BKK. HJC is the top helmet mfgr in the States and those helmets are all Snell approved, but they also have a factory in Korea which makes helmets to the European standard. Paddock stocks HJC helmets from Korea.

    Thanks for the links....

    They don't go to an electronic company but as they say its the thought that counts...

    I dont understand how a helmet can be too small for your wife and fit me! no insult intended!

    My wife has the cbr already it gets sprayed pink and white during the first week of april!

    My guesses are i will just look in chiang mai for a helmet and if i dont find anything great keep my fingers crossed and hope i dont crash....

    Thanks again
    matt

    Just bought HJC AC 3 helmet at Paddocks BKK. Good value for 5,000 bht.Buy another one 4 spouse. The price is a little higher than on the website, but they say that they have to pay tax.
    Wonder what the price should be then.
    Still cheap, considering the quality.
