I heard a rumor on another forum that Arai will go back to selling Helmets on-line. I heard that they were losing to much money by not offering them on the internet. Has anyone else heard anything about this ?

That's cool...Arai makes some great helmets. The RX-7 corsair is still the best helmet I've ever worn. My Vemar is close enough to it that I haven't wanted to spring the money for a fourth helmet (three is good enough for me, I figure, even if my other two aren't so great).
I probably will spring the cash on the new Dainese helmet though...the Dainese Airstream Bluetooth helmet...supposedly the shell is the same weight as the RX-7, but it has a built in headset and bluetooth for cell phones (and talking between paired Bluetooth helmets)...so basically it's an expensive ass helmet with the quality and construction of Dainese producs with a built-in $200 bluetooth Chatterbox, all for like $600. And the bluetooth is actually integrated into the helmet, so there's no bulky boxes anywhere, nothing to distinguish it on first glimpse from a normal helmet, and the pairing button and (I believe) volume controls are built into the helmet shell. Really bad ass.
