New Shark

A Ghei Latin Helmet Fairy had something delivered to me today.

First impressions.
- Fit and finish are superb
- Very light
- Nice vent location
- The most comfortable helmet I've put on my head
- Not as claustorphobic as my Suomys
- I like the lines and curves in helmet ... not the usual "ball" shape

I usually get M in Suomy and Shoei. I got a M and it's just a wee bit loose. But, I think a S would be too tight.

A tribute to all my fond memories my friend! I know everytime I look at it or see it, it will put beautiful memories and thoughts in my head and always put me in the right state of mind for riding!

I'm feverishly working on an acquisition in Brazil as we speak!

Yes, I'll buy the shields. PM sent. Some lame a$$ illegal immigrant forgot my shields!

If the helmet would have fit ... I would have bought it in a heart beat. I've actually talked with two friends in Brazil that want the same helmet and they are both Shoei Mediums.

Nonsense, not such thing... heavy gray matter is all you got there!

XX, do you need the smoke shield to shamefully hide your embarrasment from people because they are looking at your chesticles?

Besides, this is all you'll ever need.

My Shark Carbon had three tight fit spots. I pulled out the liner and did a LITTLE fine sand paper custom fitting! I love that feather light helmet!

They no longer call it the "Barros Replica", they now call it "Brazilian" and, even though it resembles and is very similar to the old Barros replica, it is not the same, sans the Brazilian flags. I heard something about Barros not getting paid for it or copyrights, etc, etc... what-e-va!
