Default Need some motorcycle helmet advice

So I'm looking for a new helmet for my bike. The ones that came with it are cheap little brain buckets. I really like the German WW 2 style helmets but I have a large head. Anyone got some advice for what to look for? I don't want a full face helmet. Thanks!

If the bike is larger than a 250cc then I recommend you buy this one for it .....







I'm kidding of course. What bike do you have?

I always liked the styling of German helmets from either WWI or WWII. If you're not worried about having a DOT approved helmet I'd recommend searching ebay for helmets from either war, you're likely to find a large size that way.

If you want DOT approved try this site. They have sizes up to 2XL. http://www.leatherup.com/c/German-Helmets/2/178.html

I don't think i called it that, just said it wouldn't be big enough for you. Mines only a 1600. Anyhow like what you ride and ride what you like I always say.

When I rode my Honda Rebel 250 my buddy laughed his a$$ off and said I looked like a duck riding a junebug down the street!

Of course my bike was running and his was on the trailer, so who had the last laugh!?
