Well, I'm curious. I personally wear a white lid with bright, almost day glow graphics (a Quantum e Numata rep to be exact). While it might not match my bike perfectly, it's loud and makes me easily seen by cagers. I think a solid white lid is probably best in this regard though.

I had a solid Anthracite Arai but it got dinged when I had the shoulder blade crash. Since I've got obnoxious yellow leathers now I decided I needed something bold for my helmet as well. Now I've got a Jimmy Moore replica Shoei, replete with flames and a skull & crossbones with a tophat. :D

Blaze Orange, baby.

In '96 I was rear ended by a pickup driving octogenarian with caratacts while riding my Triumph and wearing a pearl silver Shoei. So I decided that fashion wasn't going to be part of my riding apparel decisions anymore.

Now Shoei no longer makes that color, and it's time to replace the lid, so I'm going to purchase either an X-11 or an RF1000 in white, and I'll custom paint the helmet in a couple of flourescent colors, including orange and yellow.

With my orange leathers, I can be seen by the legally blind. People don't cut me off or turn left in front of me anymore. ( though I still don't trust that they won't...)

I wear a Shoei Nobby Replica, size XL. A little more flash than I'd normally choose,
but the price was right, and the fit was and continues to be excellent.

Put it up on a shelf, might be worth some money someday.

RIP Kato :(

I was thinking the same thing, but I don't have the cash to go out and get another lid. and this one is so comfortable.

I've always worn a black Arai. But I just couldn't resist the new silver quantum. Kind of a champaign silver. Very comfy.
