I don't mean to sound big-headed but...

...I am. Can anyone point me at someone selling XXL size crash helmets in the UK (preferably in the central London area so that I can try before I buy) that really are XXL and won't cost more than the bloody motorbike?

What seems to have happen is that Chinese companies have taken over the crash helmet manufacturing industries and are shipping in the small through XL sizes by the hundreds of thousands, but can't be arsed to make XXL because most shops only get a handful of customers that need them. That leaves European manufacturers or hand-made as the main sources, both hugely expensive, and me with a head that's too wide to go through the opening of any crash helmet under £150 or so.

I think I've asked this before - for various reasons I've been putting off looking for one, and it's beginning to get a bit urgent as the visor on my current helmet deteriorates, since it's a type that's no longer available.
