It's more sociable to remove helmet - but criminy, with earplugs, glasses, neckerchief and gloves which have to come off - it's not worth it at a gas station.

My first flip-up was a Bieffe and the chin bar was pretty chintzy. Beiffe made it pretty clear in the literature that this was a 3/4 helmet with extra wind protection. In fact you could even remove the chin bar and wear it like a 3/4.



My current flip-up is a Schuberth and it's very well made and comfortable.

I had one of the original Schuberth BMW System helmets when I had my K 100RS. I liked it well enough but it did seem a little noisey compared to my RF800. I really liked the reflective panels on each side and the little air dam you could add to the front when it's cold out. I took an Exacto knife to the foam to get a little more clearence around my ears because of the earpiece on my spectacles but other than that it was a pretty nice deal.



If I got another flipper I'd get a Shoei but Suomy's are becoming available now so I'd probably get that instead

If you're into speed and efficiancy why are you going in the store to pay for gas? I use either my gas card or debit at the pump and be done with it.

Looks like the Nolan has my HJC beat. The wind noise is so bad that it's downright painful without earplugs and bearable with them. A Above 80mph it doesn't seem to increase much. Is it possible to wear any of the modulars without plugs?

My HJC works fine with glasses, but I have to put it on with my glasses off. After that, the flip-up is great at gas stations, etc.

My Schuberth is considerably quieter than my old Nolan was.



I still wear earplugs for long rides.
