Some may have seen the Real M/C Helmets @ the BKK Motor Show. They now have started appearing in Shops here in CNX. I had to pick one up for SWMBO a the last moment, and popped into the helmet shop on the Chang Moi road expecting to have to get an INDEX. They now stock Real Helmets and I was really surprised by their quality [DOT & QC Stickers FWTW] - a real improvement on INDEX. Their tasty Matt Black "Stealth" with tinted visor set me back 1900THB, which included a box & helmet cover. On the Real-Helmet website they quote 2100THB http://www.real-helmets.com/product/pro ... 40&lang=th In the English version they are quoting $360!!! http://www.real-helmets.com/product/pro ... 40&lang=en Note that when you click on the helmet for details the price drops to $62 - so it is a translational glitch. The fit, finishing, materials and overall general construction appears to be close to that of Japanese helmets. Check them out if you are looking for an inexpensive back up helmet.
