RE: Snell95 M rated helmets

Definitely need to go to a shop with a decent selection to try on a bunch.
Different brands do fit differently.  I ride motorcycles as well and would
say that spending extra for comfort is worth it if you plan on using the
helmet a lot.  

Paying over $300 is way out of line though.  Dennis Kirk has great
selection, but is WAY over priced (I always shop there, but never buy
there).  Motorcycle Accessory Warehouse has much better deals.  And you
local shop may have some good deals as well, if you're willing to haggle a
little.  I bought my AGV from a local shop for $220, and can't see ever
paying more for a helmet.....

Good luck.
