I like helmet laws, but also agree that the choice should be with the rider. I know that if I hadn't been wearing my helmet when I went down, I wouldn't have a face. Almost ALL the damage to my helmet was on the front from the top of the visor to the chin (visor was actually shredded into little pie...

I got raped by interest and my inability to say no....but I would say a good price would be maybe $6500 or lower. The MSRP is $5999; so shoot for anything close to that.

Went down going 50 mph. HJC CL-14 helmet had the visor ripped off and cracked the inside foam stuff. $25 JC Penny leather jacket took it like a champ (EMTs cut it all to hell though). My gloves (cortech accelerators) got some minor scratches on them. Other than that I was fine. 8)
