Hi guys and gals,
I got my new riding goggles today and now I'm trying to find a helmet to complete the look for my bike.

Any idea what helmet would work best?

Here are my goggles and bike:


I'm looking forward to your input.

Thanks and merry Christmas!

    So, where did you find the goggles? How pricey were they?
 Very cool!

I have a WWII German style helmet.  I really like it, get compliments on it.

I have the DOT approved style, its a little big.  The non-DOT ones aren't as big and don't look as goofy... but of course they're not as safe.
260 Rear Tire, Freedom Curves exhaust, DIY BAK, DIY integrated turn signals, DIY sidemount plate.  More to come.

Those goggles remind me of Iron Man. Maybe look for something down that route.

I have not found the "right" helmet yet, but found this and ordered it.
Definitely not DOT!  ;D
