Almost always full face. Did get a 3/4 when I still had my GL500 because it gets hot behind the fairing when it gets in the 90s.

Having a FF is handy when riding around farmland. Gets a little buggy out there.

Full face but with the occasional open face, some days are just too nice.

None. I enjoy the freedom of letting my hair blow in the wind and being in tune with my surroundings.
Helmets make me feel like I'm in a bubble. Cutoff from my surroundings. Dulls my senses.
No thanks.
