    I don't even drink Monster! I'm with you Buddha, no thanks. The helmet design and features are nice, I love my Arai and will definitely get another one, but I'm no walking energy drink billboard.

    $670 for a helmet that's good till 1st crash or 5 years? NO WAY. i could buy more protective gear like new flip flops, wife beaters, and shorts with $670.

    yea it probably won't be for everyone. I am a Hopkins fan and like the design. Even if it is a helmet billboard.

    Cool design aside, there's something about paying $600+ for something slathered in company logos that doesn't sit well with me...

    What he said. I can't stand Monster Energy cause I associate it with rally drivers I don't like.

    Re: new Hopkins Arai for 08'

    Lots of people have been looking for this helmet to be made for awhile, I guess they finally got the licensing all set.

    It's one of those things, I doubt I'll ever have some guy walk into the shop and convince him to get that one over another Arai rep(it actually retails about $30 more than the others), but for someone who wants it cause it's Hopkins, or cause it's Monster, or cause it's green, they'll drop the money for it. You'd be amazed how well the Monster off road stuff does. The Oneal Monster off road helmet is their 5 series(bottom end) helmet, but because they slap the Monster decals on it, it's marketed seperately as a Monster line, and it retails much higher.

    Thats why I want it. Hopkins my favorite rider even before he switched to Kawi, and I love Kawi, and all my stuff is green, so at least Ill be cool and match.

    Someone told me that you can always tell a true rider from one who just wants to be cool, simply by looking at their gear and bike; if it matches, you're a nub!
