How many helmets do you own?

I just want to see how many of us have more than 1 or 2 helmets. Also, reason why we have so many.

You really should let her wear one. I mean really, how can you wear two helmets at once...


Hey, and fix that sig, didn't you just raise that sucker back to stock.

I have 9 helmets in all, but to be fair only 3 of them are street and the rest are dirt helmets. They are kinda like trophies that represent parts of my riding career. I even have one that I cracked in half from nailing a tree while doing a poker run. Each one is a good story even if I dont wear em anymore :)

Couple dozen or so. Some dirt, some street, but many are old and/or crashed race lids. I try to start each season with a couple fresh ones. I nail the old ones to the rafters in my garage by their chin strap.

I voted 2. I have one (Shoei RF1000 Caster TC-5) and I bought my girl one (Shark RSI Karma).

I'm going to be getting another one this summer to go with my new Buell. I'm going to be getting a Shoei X-Twelve Glory 2 TC-2. There are a couple other helmets I like so I might actually pick up another one after I buy the X-Twelve.

I have 3 for the street bike. Bought my Scorpion and got one with 2 out of 3 of my bikes. I also have a dirt helmet and a sled helmet but I didn't count those. My house has probably 20+ helmets between 3 people including hockey and stuff

I have 4, but only 2 are riding worthy - My X11 and a pink girls helmet that my friend gave me, I forget the brand.

I have a Vega that the guy who sold me the bike gave me, but I don't trust it and its pretty beat up.

I also have my shoei RF1000 that I wrecked in last summer that took a good hit to the face and the back near the spoiler. Its did its job wonderfully, I didn't even have a head ache and I would have been messed up bad had I not been wearing it.
