Ok, thanks everyone for there thoughts. Ignoring the fact that a full face is in theory (reality?) safer, I have decided to still get a modular and have pulled the trigger on a Schuberth C3 Pro helmet. I researched and researched and all roads seem to lead to the C3 Pro, assuming that the $$ cost is survivable.
I've order the C3 Pro in "Racing Red" color as a protest against the popularity of "matte black". If that helmet won't fit my head then I will return it and try the Shoei Neotech. It that doesn't fit then maybe the Lazer Monico. The difficulty for me is that no one in Canada will ship to the Yukon and let me return the helmet if it doesn't fit. So I'm having to order from the states (Revzilla) and have it delivered to Skagway, Alaska. Excuse of another 2 hour ride down one of the most beautiful roads on the planet!
What drove me to the C3:
1. Quiet! Seems to be about the quietest modular helmet.
3. Quality seem unsurpassed.
Too bad the helmet is soo Damn expensive, but at this point in my life (54), what's another couple hundred dollars?
I'll report back once I get the Helmet.
