Scorpion EXO-700 (my second one of these). It's seen many thousands of miles and millions of mosquitos:

Sorry to say it, but this is not my cup of tea (or beer, coffee, whiskey - you name it!) It's way too Storm Trooper - which is its appeal, I'm sure.

Mine is a Bell Vortex, the color scheme is "Flack." Bought it last year, along with the bike. :) I got a tinting faceshield for it, as well. Since I wear glasses, that's nice - I don't have to take sunglasses on and off.

Joe Rocket, red to match my bike. It was on super sale at motorcycle superstore and I needed a replacement after my first one got stolen.

I should probably start another thread for this next discussion, but maybe this is as good a place to bring it up as any.

Has anyone heard of the ReeVu helmet? It has a fully optical (non-electronic) rear view system. I'll find some good links to add to this post, but you can find info at (go figure) http://www.reevu.com. The helmet is good-looking, as well as extra functional. It comes in different colors and styles, including a convertible model for glasses wearers. The price is about as much as any premium lid, but not even as much as the average Shoei. Here are some images.
