    BMW Cruiser Helmet

    Does anyone know where I can get my hands on the BMW Cruiser Helmet they use to sell for the C and CL series? I would love to have a silver one to go with my Silver CLC. I know there is probably not a chance in Hell that there is one out ther but I had to ask.

    The best marketplace to find one of these is likely to be on the Chromeheads forum:

    BMW hasn't brought any of their branded helmets here in 20 years.

    Perhaps someone in Europe will look for one for you.

    I am going to check out the BMW dealer in Hong Kong on the 24th of this month. I hope they will have one of the Enduro helmets in stock that will fit me.

    I'll keep my eyes open for one of these, but my guess is you're out of luck.

    I think so too. Goog luck in HK. You might be able to get one from these guys but it aint cheap. I am assuming your head is not cheap though;-)

    I think BMW stopped making that helmet 4 years ago. If you did find one it has most likely 'expired'.

    i seriously doubt that BMW ever "made" any helmet that gets sold with their label on it. just like oil- they are in the vehicle manufacturing business, not the oil business.
    regardless- this is a pretty nice "cruiser" helmet. i use it when teaching on the range. http://www.agv.com/dyn_prodlist.php?k=147728 not silver, but steel grey. has built in clear and tinted eyeshields. kinda looks like RoboCop.
    on the road- well, i like to eat food (as opposed to drinking my steak), so i wear a FF all the time.

    It's missing the chin protection.
    Remember the ruckus a few years back about a female rider on the cover of ON (IIRC) wearing something similar?Good luck in your search.I'm heading to Macau and Singapore between now and June and I'll try to locate the dealer if time permits.Always interested in what dealerships carry outside the US.

    I love Singapore. Get some Pepper Crab at Jumbo for me. Here are a couple of other Cool helmets I am considering that are not sold in the US.
