I came very close to pulling the trigger on a C4 but ended up going with a HJC RPHA-90.

Sweet deal.

I really like the look of the Flagger. For whatever reason, Shoei helmets just don't fit my noggin right. I think in technical terms, I have a "round" head, and Shoei tends to cater more towards an "oval" or "intermediate oval". Even by replacing the pads with thicker/thinner ones to compensate, it just never comes out right.

My most recent helmet is an Arai Quantum-X and it doesn't have the best aesthetic but it fits like a dream.

A comfortable helmet is one that gets worn. That's all that really matters. If they wouldn't have accepted my offer I would have gone matte black plain.

I have the RF1200 as well, my first "real" helmet, and I have to admit I'm fairly disappointed by how noisy it is. It's pretty light, has really good visibility, fairly good airflow, and it's a great fit, but it's much louder than I was expecting it to be given the reviews I'd read before getting it last year.

To compare, my last helmet was a basic Scorpion, and I only wore earplugs on longer rides. With the Shoei, it's earplugs every time, even just for a quick run to get gas.

Interested to *hear* your experience with it!
