I paid $400 at the BMW Rally. No tax or shipping.  They shipped from Aurora but it took 6 weeks.  They were b/o’d.  Had to wait to get them from Italy.  Normal price is $439-$459.  The NCom unit B901 r was $250.00 plus tax. Nolan’s fit my head and are very comfortable for me. This is my 3rd one.  The Helmet House was the best price I found. But since I was at the Rally I bought there.

That's about the same price here and we're hit with 24% sales tax. (not a typo). I've ALWAYS had Nolans and love them but the price is getting to be a bit much!

Taxation update!!!

Most of the helmets sold here are in the €50-€100 range. Just enough to keep the cops off your butt.
Of the helmets actually expected to provide protection €200 is the average number.
IMHO, €400 is about the starting point for something worth while.

So, in light of all these facts they've (finally) figured out they're lowering the sales tax to 13%
Life is good!
