Best Helmets

Just wondering what helmets others are using when they're out on their 1700. If anyone has pics of themselves while using it would be appreciated. I'm looking to possibly replace mine and I want a full face that will look good with the bike. Preferably with a slide down sun shield and of course, best functionality.

That's what I'm currently using, which I like. I'm just trying to get ideas for something better, if I can.

Also wanted an internal sun visor, got an AGV, upgraded to a Shoei GT-Air, never going to own anything cheaper. If you want full face and internal sun visor, go straight to the Shoei GT-Air.

I use a Roof Desmo modular. Love it for it's versatility. ECE rated so not sure if it is legal in the States but good up here in Canada. Ordered it thru Burn out Italy arrived in a week and pretty reasonable pricing. Shark Evoline is another I considered as both that and the roof flip fully back to ride open or closed. My 2 cents. Happy hunting.
