If you can find areas that sell scooters, there is usually part stores close by that sell helmets. Chinese helmets suck. They have no impact absorbing material. basically just a hard hat. The helmet would never pass a DOT safety certificate for use in North America. It'll keep you from scraping your skull but won't absorb any impact. I looked at a full coverage helmet and it was the same.

 A good bicycle helmet would probably be better, it has styrofoam lining, to absorb shock, but maybe not enough of a hard shell. All the motorcycle taxi drivers just wear construction helmets with no straps, which offers little safety and will fall off in a spill.

 Wearing a proper helmet, you won't feel anything in a crash. Head injuries are serious. At home kids are supposed to wear helmets on bicycles. Think egg hitting the floor.

Look for something on line that has DOT certificate

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
