Flat out best deal on a helmet

This is not a "which helmet is most comfortable" or "should I go with this or that". I'm just seeing if anybody knows of any ridiculously good deals going on right now. Dennis Kirk outlet had RF-1000's for $180 but they are all sold out of almost everything. I have about $200-220 for the helmet but don't necessarily need to spend all that. I always see people posting deals like $300 jackets on clearance for $80 or $130 gloves for $30 (btw both of those threads made me pull out the CC and order instantly.) I'm not picky just looking for the best deal on a nice helmet.

Check eBay too...but be weary of helmets off there. You want to make sure they are new. But deals can be found from reputable dealers on eBay.

What's the point of getting the "best deal" on a helmet that doesn't fit your head? $200-220 can get you a decent helmet from Scorpion, KBC, HJC if you go shopping for one. You don't even know which one fits your head yet. Do that first and then go shopping. Get a list of helmets, models and sizes that fit your head and then go shop for the best prices on these helmets THAT FIT YOUR HEAD.

My plan is to go try on a bunch of helmets at local shops to see which one fits the best, then if the prices are too high at the stores compared to the internet I will look for best deal on the best fitting helmet.

Thanks guys. You're totally missing what I'm asking. I'm new here but I'm not new to sportbikes. I was just wondering if anyone knew any good sales going on right now like that deal I posted for the HJC.
