I just hope I can get by with my helmet. I went out and bought a new one at the local motorcycle shop. Its 2014 DOT certified, but Gateway says they want your helmets to be 2005 or 2010 snell certified. I would think that a 2014 DOT certification would be better then the older Snell certs, but I don't know. From my understanding some people get by with them just taking a look at your helmet while others inspect them.
Dont worry about the helmet, not one track Ive been to has ever inspected my helmet. Hell, a couple of tracks Ive been to just ignored it when I started going through WITHOUT a helmet.

I dont like driving with a motorcycle helmet because the top of my head hits the roof of the car. Im going to look into getting a smaller, auto helmet.
