Do the hooks and stuff flap around a lot when you ride?

I think it fits a little better than the RF, it feels snug all around and being a flip-up the chin bar fits further under my chin than the RF so it's warmer. That will work the other way in summer of course but for now it's nice not to have the cold draft. As far as I know the shield and latch mechanism is all the same so they're interchangable. Also the chin bar has a breath deflector so it reduces fogging considerably. So far the venting works well, we had a few upper 70's days so far and it was comfortable.



Most of the riding I've done with it has been upper 30's to mid 50's and rain and it's worked well plus the neck seems to be cut a little higher at the back so it clears my spine pad better. With the RF on the Suzuki I was constantly pushing back against the top of the pad and it'd give me a stiff neck after awhile, this one is cut so that at speed the back of the helmet is just resting on the pad so it's much more comfortable and I don't get as much lift at high speed either so that's a plus as well.



All in all I think it's an excellent helmet and if you have a Shoei head it should be comfortable for the long term as well.

What makes you think I use it for fishing?



It'll hold at least 10 different kinds of ammunition, a flask and some HD beef jerky! What else do you need?

As a matter of fact I was responding to Longrides post in a general vein not yours, and I was more or less agreeing with everything you said. Whose being overly sensitive here?



I assure you there's nothing wrong with MY comprehension skills, nor do I have a "Motor Company Alarm". In fact I don't even own a Harley, though I've owned and ridden the ***** out of 5 of them over the years I currently own (and ride the ***** out of) a Triumph and a Suzuki.



Finally, I never claimed to be a bad ass or even a "Biker", I consider myself to be a Motorcycle Enthusiast and wear a Hi Viz Aerostitch suit and full face helmet everytime I ride which is daily, almost everywhere I go.



Will that suffice or do you need more clarification?

That sure sounds like fishing to me (or is that trolling?)

You're right.



I am the one being pissy now. Longride got me all fired up with his stupid trolling and most of that invective was intended for him.



My apologies.
