I figured Alan's wife got wind of what was going on and was standing right by the camera guy.

A. She does not know what she is talking about. I have two nolan XXL helmets, one fits one does not, the "size chart" is about as useless as Alan in this video.
B. If you turn the volume down, you can imagine that she's French and not care about the helmet advice.

I bet Alan has an alternate place to hang that helmet besides his noggin.
Now if she could demonstrate how to properly fit a pair of leather chaps.
(without Alan)

I've watched this video about 52 times and have not seen any helmets. She does have a sexy accent but I have no idea what she's saying.

Better watch it again.....
