Went over to Daytona today and tried on some different helmets. Weather was bad so it was a great day to do something like this. Tried on Shoei, Nolan, Bell, Scorpion and the HJC RPHA Max helmet. The fit was best on the Neotec and the Nolan N-104. Looked closely at the ventilation and fit and finish of these two helmets, the only advantage easily discernable that I could tell was in the ease of removal of the visor. Shoei wins this hands down however the Nolan is fairly easy as well. So, for the $200 + difference in price I picked up a large Nolan N-104 and a Scala G9 Rider comm system. Side benefit of the helmet was that the rest of the buffeting I was experiencing is pretty much non existant now. Lowers helped the most and the aerodynamics of the helmet did the rest.
