Go past Fairy Plaza as if you're going to the sports stadium, continue looking on the same side of the road as Fairy Plaza, you'll see a small shop that sells very good full face crash helmets and the lady will give you discount.

Just curious . . . if the lady will give a complete stranger that walks into her store a discount, who does she charge full price to?

I have never managed to buy anything in Thailand that was not "discounted"   I save so much money here it's unbelievable......LOL

Just make sure that the manufacturer of any helmet you buy has used a decent spellchecker on it. LOL

Got myself a Real Helmets G-Force (http://www.real-helmets.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tpl&category_id=2&option=com_virtuemart&vmcchk=0&Itemid=4&product_id=31&product_color=%E0%B8%AA%E0%B8%B5%E0%B8%94%E0%B8%B3%E0%B8%94%E0%B9%89%E0%B8%B2%E0%B8%99&product_view=2). I'm gonna look soo bad ass when I roam KKC on my little scooter Pig - anyway, safety first Smile
Bought it at the small shop down the road from Fairy Plaza. And no, she didn't give any discount - quite the opposite. When I came home and saw the price on the website I realized she had cheated me for 200 Baht (and I even bought a new helmet for my wife as well) Censored
