Hey Guys, happy holidays to everyone...i am from southeast of Oklahoma, just collected my Christmas gift and could not be more happier:):):). what a lovely machine. took a picture of it from my cellphone but soon will do a nice photoshoot to upload.

I am a bit confused on what helmet to choose for my new baby out of the following two(image attached):
1. Shoei Rf-1100 trasmission($350). or
2. Shoei Rf-1200 Mystify($530).

I think they both will look good with the red beauty, I personally like the color scheme of rf-1200 more, but cant justify the price diffrence? is the rf-1200 really worth the extra green??

Thanks,
CJ.

CJ, the RF-1200 is the latest model of the Shoei sport-touring helmet lineup. Both are very good in their class. Best bet is to choose which one molds to your head better. I have the RF-1100 myself too, great helmet. If I had a chance or enough $$ to get another helmet, I'd choose between the GT-Air or RF1200.

Hope it helps!

Is your MIL Hindu? I've spent some time overseas and know that symbol is a good luck charm in other cultures and predates any of the negative connotations associated with it.
