Finally got pics of my new lid. Great helmet for the price.
I also got the shield in GOLD finish. Ordered it from
tricktape.

Basically this is what I look like in my commute rides.
Keeping it a tade safer except for the Converse Sneakers! :hammer

Yeah...how do you like it compared to the arai in the background? I was thinking of picking one up myself.

I really love it. The fit for me is very similar to the Arai I also have.
I have th Corsair in small (Yeah I know I have a small noggin) & I got the same size for the Scorpion.

Quality is up there with Arai & Shoei. There are enough vents that really work. They are good enough for street riding. The only thing I noticed are the paint. The Arai has more layers than the Scorpion.

Did I also mention the shields are "SCRATCH PROOF"?? YES THEY ARE!
I had a chance to scrape off the surface from the edge of the garage door.
I thought there was a gash but it was only the paint from the door itself!! I did the same thing with the Arai the gash was there permanently!

For the price $170+/- is effin' great! I considered getting the cheaper
Shoei's but I feel this one surpasses it in quality, fitment & bells n' whistles [scratch proof shields, venting, removable liner w/ quality similar to Arais & it's non-wick, & fiber glass/kevlar shell (EXO-700)]
I am very happy with my purchase!

The price of the shields (chrome, tint etc.) was only $35.00 compared
to Arais $80.

I am planning to pick up the blue raider model. I have only heard good things about this company and want to get one before they jack up the prices.

Now your all set as soon as you get some new rubber mounted on that ride behind you.......
Might be alittle drafty without the fairing.....

One word of caution, they might run a little small. I have a medium HJC and tried to stick my head in a medium Scorpion....my fiance damn near had to pry the thing off with a crowbar. That being said, the Large was all sorts of comfy. The dealership here likes them a lot.

that's my biggest fear with ordering online for helments, gloves, boots, etc... anything that might not fit...
