What did I buy....??? I'm still reading
I purchased a Bell SC-X Python. It's usally around $150.00. I paid $77.00 to the door. It is both DOT and Snell 2005 rated.
One thing I'm challenged with is that it requires some effort to get on my big "melon". I'm told that after 30 days or so the helmet will break in a little making it a bit easier to get on. Also I'm told that it is normal to have to pull the helmet open using the straps. Once it's on it is comfortable and not too loose (which is one of the biggest fit mistakes that users make).
