What helmet do you own/ride with your KLR?


Online, I've seen a few folks riding their KLR with the dual-sport helmet. What helmet do you own/ride with your KLR?

In the cold weather I use a modular helmet. Once it warms up I'll switch to a 3/4 helmet with a built in face shield.

A bad day on the bike is better than a good day at work...
There's no such thing as enough storage space...

I've got one of these http://www.revzilla.com/product/scor...sformer-helmet

I like it but I wish it had better ventilation for hot days. I think next time around I'll try one of the dedicated dual sport helmets.

I use the AFX-37 and have always really liked it. I'm thinking about getting a new one in the hi-viz color.

Hi-vis Scorpion modular/full face...at least, that's what I used to wear, until my last get-off. Haven't ridden since Halloween, but as soon as I can, I have another hi-vis Scorpion full-face (not modular, tho').

ATGATT, brothers and sisters!!

AFX DS-39. Great "value" priced helmet. Very good airflow, goggles fit under shield if wanted, peak is long enough to help shield sun without catching too much air. Build quality is very good for price. 10k miles on mine and zero complaints, other than it's a bit loud. That's primarily due to the amount of air flow, imo.

I wear an arai xd3. I love it. Most comfortable helmet I've ever owned.

Most of the time I wear an HJC CL-MAX modular.

Occasionally on hotter days I'll wear an HJC CL-33. Its much cooler and lighter than the MAX.

I like the looks and the idea of the dual sport helmets but I have come to appreciate modular helmets (wearing glasses sucks).
