don't know any physical store, I bought my helmet from www.soloperformance.com

The nj bmwcca uses the HJC open face helmet as a loaner at autox events - it's what I bought.

I think there is a size chart on that site... if it's not there, I must have searched for one. I was on the line between large and x-large - I went with the xl, and it is a bit loose.

I believe I bought the CS-5.

I bought mine from Stable Energies in Garfield, NJ. They had a decent selection, and it's nice to be able to try the helmets on.

It is always best to try on and buy your helmets locally. Sizing with a tape measure does not take into account the shape of the helmet and your head. I tried on a bunch of lids at a local place and found that a couple well known brands were just not comfortable on my skull. I ended up mail ordering a Bell M2 from OG only because I was able to try on a a buddy's M2 in a size that fit me perfectly.

Oh, yeah... I got my M2 from OG Racing for $240 in a group buy.
