Default Cruiser Helmet Help!

Hey after a loads of jhol jhal with some dealers i finally got my Bike its a bajaj Avenger... and yes i do feel like GoD when i Ride on it ,,, seriously forget everything else juz because of the amazing ride comfort of it.

Its seriously a nice machine.

Now the best part ,,, I want to buy a Nice helmet for myself.... but ya it has to be cruiser types... i mean AGV'z and stuffs are good but i need something which looks good on a cruiser bike. My preference would be a half face but with a visor.

Now my budget is anywhere between 2K's but i want something real nice.

Please help me guys... i looked a lot in THANE and all are pathetic.
(couldnít go out as i don't have the reg. no. yet..) i'll be going to mumbai and navi mumbai for the search of a nice helmet on this Sunday or saturday night.

Tell me if there are any good shops and which are the best brands for a cruiser helmet.

well i've seen helmets like this in thailand.

they were more of harley types had some leather ribbets around it and one had fixed glasses in front of it. and mind u the glasses were not like a visor but something like a sunglass. sexy stuff bro.

Price 1000 Bhatt ( may last bargain u might get it even cheaper)

which is equals somethere around Rs 1600.

Thumbs up

hi there guys ,

Well i have seen both the helmets you have mentioned bellow for sae in delhi .

The one with the visor was in black and is i think around 2500 . it had some thai markings so could not make out what was written , but looked nice . only thing i found them to be too fragile ... seriously they feel very unsafe once you hold them in your hand . or may be its just me ....

the other one posted by sinner is available in a clothes shop in noida, again Thai markings are was priced at 1700 .

it also somenice designs on it , however the base was black . looked really nice .

Any of you wats to get them , let me know your address and i shall send it to you , or else if you come to delhi , you will be in for a bonus , drinks on the house with the Helmets ..

take care guys
