I also have no problem using previous generation items especially if the work and the difference in design is not so revolutionary that going with the new gen is a no-brainier. Luckily the new helmet fits perfectly. Who says I'm not lucky.
I'm so weird I have to put my gloves on in a certain order. Left glove first, THEN the right glove. It's stupid, but there it is.

My local BMW dealer has them on sale also.

I tried on the Pro. Still feels like a round helmet on an oval head.

You bet. I think I'll go for the Bluetooth only.

I thought they may be trying to get rid of them. Lucky me.

I will equip my helmet only. She will learn. I will teach her.

one would think the Schuberth would only fit square heads (snerk). Nice helmet though, I had a System 1 helmet back in the 80's when I had my K bike, in fact it was sitting on my shelf for years after I started wearing Shoei's and just got tossed after the Great Garage Purge of 2012....

I use either my Shoei Multitec in crummy weather or my Shoei RJ Air Platinum 3/4 for nice days, I have the prototypical Shoei head so that's what I stick to.

I like the Schuberth, especially at the great price JM got his for. But my next lid will probably be another Nolan; the N104. According to the marketing hype they've vastly improved the ventilation (the 102's worst attribute), the chinbar is designed to be low-drag when in the open position, and I've always appreciated the easy removal and machine-washability of the liner. Right now they're selling for around $350, but the last two I bought were the previous generation model, so I got them for under $300.

You may want to wait until next year. They are coming out with a new model called the Blindster. It is the first helmet designed with built in equine blinders to provide cover for the wearer's refusal to understand the truth. Any truth.
