If you're planning on dating Amy Winehouse, I'd recommend one of those Abe Lincoln hats for all that hair. Eck! Can you image that skank wrapping those junkie arms around you, breathing on your neck with the stench of alcohol?

Sorry, what was the question again?

Wow, what a tool... You really know nothing about helmets (or women for that matter) d'ya?

Head/helmet size has nothing to do with the size of the rest of her. (heck a few of us were having this very discussion on a ride yesterday ). I have one female rider friend who's average size (maybe a bit wide through the hips) who wears an X-Small... another girl we know, very similar in size to the first, wears a L or an XL, depending on the lid. I wear a M in Arai, but a L in Icon... the "right" size is going to depend on what brand, and what shape her head is. Helmets aren't one size fits all, so why not just find a girl with her own helmet (and her own bike, for that matter )

I'd probably go with medium too if you can only have one extra helmet BUT as already mentioned....there is no "one size fits all".

I wear a medium HJC and my wife wears a medium Scorpion but when I rode her R6 and went to put her helmet on to "match the bike"...it about squeezed my head like a pimple.

07 blue R6

Here's a question...how much do you love your current helmet? I'd buy me another helmet and let the pillions use my old one. For casual rides a helmet doesn't have to fit a passenger perfectly,besides,size can be different based on how the girl is wearing her hair that day. Obviously,if you get serious and want to take a girl for more sporting or longer rides,then you worry about fit. Neebs is right btw,Rosie Odonnel probably wears a small and Angelina Jolie probably wears a large. Heck,my ex was 5'2" and 100lbs and wore a med,ofcourse she had hair down to her butt that she tucked into the helmet when we rode....

Since when are helmets adjustable? The only helmet on the market that's remotely "adjustable" is the Scorpion EXO1000.

He's probably thinking that you can buy various cheek pads,etc to tweek the helmet's size. It won't help the crown of the head tho'....

Haha I would suggest a medium!

This is why I hesitate to join any bike forum, let alone one that lets piggy men in it.
Typical "right side" sexist comments.

I am a woman with large feet, hands, and head. I'm cute and I can suck the chrome off a tailpipe. I have lots of female attributes. I have to wear a large sized long oval helmet.
