Thanks for mentioning the helmet! Not crazy about the color options, but also not crazy about dropping $500 on a Shoei. Will you update this thread after you get a chance to use the helmet for a week or two and let us know how you like it? I could use a new helmet and the price is definitely right on these things.
Having $5 in eBay bucks, I also pulled the trigger on a blue one, so $45 to my door. Got red and blue jackets - fashion ya' know. As to riding with it, I'm sick and it's raining.
Anyway, I live on acreage, so I've been wearing it around the house.
They may run just a tad small, but I bought XXL (my other helmets are XL) so that I could wear a balaclava under it in the winter. It's actually quite comfortable. I often have a pressure point on my forehead, but not so with this helmet. If you have an HJC or Icon helmet, the fit is essentially the same, since they are all made by HJC. These are clearance, so no returns! First dry day I'm gonna give it a go - the only issue will be wind noise, but I suspect it is quieter than either my Icons (not bad) or my HJC AC12 (kinda noisy).
If you need both clear and tinted shields, go with the $65-70 ones on eBay, but make sure they mention the free smoke shield - some sellers have stripped the tinted shields out of the boxes to sell separately. That's OK, since I have tinted Icon shields that fit. I'll admit that the graphics are a bit radical, but I want snoozing interstate/freeway drivers to see me.
