Ive been looking for a solid color (flat black/gloss black with gold visor to match the bike) for a while now....but that SHOEI across the side is too big for my taste.

Hmm i dunno, it looks scratched up a good bit, they can be dropped and not be cracked and still damage the helmet enough to not protect your head like it should. Not to mention helmets tend to absorb your sweat among other things and also a helmet's inner liner tends to mold itself to the shape of your head.

Me personally I wouldnt buy a used one no matter what but thats me, you are the one thats gonna be wearing it so you tell me....

When it comes to accidents or impacts, helmets are a one time use type of item. Those minor dings and scratches could be indications of impacts. I have bought used helmets on Ebay but they were spotless and I have gotten great deals on terrific helmets. I would not buy this one, however.

Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.
