[RC] tipperary sportage helmets - Tina Rushing

I have this helmet and I like it.  Mine is green, I chose green because my
riding buddies got the other two colors and we thought we should have
different colors so not to mix them up.  I'm not picky about appearances.
We all bought Tipps at the convention a couple of years ago.

Previously I used the Troxel Sport.  Reasonably priced, it worked well for
me.  I didn't *need* a new helmet, but I got excited at the convention and I
bought the Tipp on a whim.  I'd say I like the Tipp better, but for the

last year and I like it a lot.  The salamander attaches to any helmet with
velcro and comes in a variety of colors and prints for the fashion-conscious

I saw someone post about this helmet and I'd like to hear from folks who
like them as my old troxel is about due for replacement and this Tipperary
has caught my eye.

 What do you like, dislike about them...and where's the place to get the
best price. None of my local shops sell them and Ebay had a limited supply
(READ---UGLY COLORS) so where's the best place to get them reasonable
