best place to buy? (shoei)

So its time to lay down and buy new helmets, I'm getting an RF-1000 and the wife's getting a TZR. The best deal I've seen seems to be Helmetcity.com, with free two day shipping and the lowest prices. Anyone got any better sites that they trust? It seems like all of the ones I've seen are sticking pretty close to the same price, at most varying by $20.

Any worries about ordering helmets through the mail? I'm just picturing it falling off the back of the UPS truck and the insides being scrambled before it gets to me...

Don't buy from that Moto Lube guy... he's a freak!!!

Seriously though, pm me the prices you have so far, size, model & colors and I'll see if I can help a bit more...

Here's a good place:

Bike Bandit

They also offer a discount to AMA members so have your AMA member ID ready.

That's a good price! The plain white ones are most visible and lowest price. Unfortunately they only fit autocoms' speakers leaving out the cheek pads.

That is a good deal because you can choose your shield. I had to spend extra 40 bucks on tinted shield.
Otherwise good choice. RF1000 is the best helmet I ever had.
