I wear a Shoei NXR. Very comfortable in the heat or the rain, and the quietest helmet I have ever worn. Around town I don't bother with ear plugs anymore, just not needed below 110kmh

these are the 3 i have. all full faces. i wouldn't dare chance it without a helmet and i've personally seen what can happen to peoples faces or lack thereof even with a half helmet.

icon chieftain. wish i would have got one in white.

icon battlecry.

icon mainframe skull. i hardly ever wear this helmet anymore.


and i'm looking for one of these. they don't make them anymore so i'll have to find a good used one. but i search allofcraigs and have a saved search on ebay. soon as i find a nice used xl in this helmet it is mine.
icon airmada thriller
