One other simple way is to open the image in good old MS Paint and then CTRL+W and change the Stretch Horizontal and Vertical parameters by 50% (or smaller depending upon the reduction in size that you need)and voila you would have a smaller size image.

Guys, i am picking up the ninja 250R and need a good helmet within 5K.

Where in bangalore can I buy a good lid which has removable linings (for washing / cleaning) and safe for my head within the above budget.

Please suggest brands, prices and location where they are available.

Check the shops near Urvashi Theatre, there is one called "Balaji" which stocks some good helmets. Look for the brands Cross, GP-One , LS2 and also Vega has some imported helmets now. I found the Cross helmets to be best looking ones. Once you finalize a particular helmet, look in the other adjscent shops to get the best price

Hi Guys,
Can you suggest a good place to buy helmets in Mumbai. I stay in the eastern suburb but travel town side for work, hence any place town side or Mulund/Thane/Vashi would be ok for me. Would like to buy a good helmet. Budget max 1.5K

Thanks

I hate this Balaji place. I went there looking for GP One, but the guy was hell bent on selling some Chinese GPR Brand. I suggest you stay away from this place.

Hi,
i have heard that there are a few shops around the 3 petrol pump road on the way to thane station. have not been there and therefore do not know how good they are.
there are however a couple of places in andheri / jogeshwari . it might be worthwhile to go there . google AH helmets for the address.

Are you getting it from Pune? Do post the pics of the helmet once you have it.
Any idea where in Bombay I can get one?

Thanks

Yup, me getting it from a place called ProBiker in Pune. No idea about its availability in Mumbai. Other members can comment on that.

You can get AGV-MPA combo helmets which are for example like HeroHonda(hero and honda).They are available in the markets. I don't think Pure AGV's are available for 2.5 or 3 Ks. You have to shell out a minimum of 6.5K for the base helmets of AGV and other imported Brands. So try AGV-MPA combos. they are of good quality,long lasting and available in a wide range of colours and designs.. Aditya , if u can stretch your budget for 2Ks more , u can get genuine AGV's. Or try Kawasaki helmets available @ there showrooms.
