Comment by Sunderer: On discount they are cheap so I have no problem retiring my old helms to dirt/dual sport and sticking out the moon roof of our van!
Comment by ninjeff: I bought a used, good condition helmet a week or so before buying my bike. I will buy a better 1 that matches my bike after I get other gear such as a jacket, pants, and boots. It should be ok while I'm learning and cruising my neighborhood, until I start heading out on the highways.
Comment by dizeldawg: The helmet is fairly new, so I don't know when I'll have to replace it. I had a Kiwi that lasted me 10 yrs.
Comment by Zeke: I won't replace it unless necessary.
Comment by BrianM: Takes about 5 seasons for the Arai padding to compress enough to not fit right.... so I wear the helmet till it doesn't fit right (should be 7 years for my current helmet). It'll be the 2nd to make the full haul (of 4 non-race lids)
Comment by Payne: After three years my HJC CL-14's internal padding had compressed such that the helmet was no longer snug on my head as it should be, which is the main reason I replaced it.
