Rkt 101?

I will be needing a new helmet before the new season, the old one is cheap, loud and smells funny (like my ex lol) Anyways, I don't wanna spend $600+, or anywhere near that for that matter. I was thinking of the joe rocket 101. I could get it for $160 off ebay wich is alot better than paying $270 from my local dealer. Are they too loud, are they true to fit, and over all are they good helmets?
Thanks

not sure about Joe Rocket's helmets but the rest of their gear I hear is good stuff...

I'd look into Scorpion or Shark helmets... in expensive but good quality. I have an Arai helmet... I like it but it was $500 and was thrown in when I bought the bike. I thought it fit perfect until I tried on my bro's Scorpion... I will be buying a EXO1000 when I get back to the states...

Take a trip up to your dealer and try on a couple different ones until you find what you like the best, then go ahead and order it online for a lot cheaper.
