Which helmet do you wear?

Which helmet (your favorite) do you wear and why?

I like the new AGV Miglia I bought recently due to metal to metal locking mechanism rather than plastic to plastic. Better fit too!

I find my AGV Top Vent VERY comfortable and it was well priced for a Snell 2000 helmet. Downside, it is noisy.

Scorpion really should have made your list. IMO, the EXO-400 and EXO-700 are the best budget-friendly helmets out there.

I have the the 400 in the "pull me over and cuff me" red tribal design.

BMW modular helmet made by Schuberth.
Reasonably quiet, a bit heavy, very comfy interior, excellent ventilation and that flip-up ability is just that good, it did not help against the Stroms turbulence though.
Would I buy it again?
Most likely.
Price in Australia: AUD$900(US$775).

I have a Shoi and a couple of HJC's. My latest is the HJC with the flip up front.

The reason for so many helmets is trying to get one to fit just right. The HJC's seem to fit my head best, but being a German squarehead I think the box the helmets come in might be a better choice.

..Tom

My Opinion:
Vee or V= DL1000 before 2014
Vee2 or V2 = DL1000 2015 to 2019
Vee3 or V3 = DL1050 2020 to?

My Stroms:
2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 205,000+ km, 127,000+ miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)
