THANKS, yea spring is slow to spring this year but we had two days in the 70s!! this weekend. TOns of bikes out. Ride safe, I lived in Waukegan for a few years when I was in the Navy. Don't miss the salted roads or the lake effect snows!I have a Hornet DS, but since it is my very first motorcycle helmet, I cannot not compare it to anything. Further, I have only wore it once driving around a large parking lot, because I am just learning to ride. I can say that it fits comfortably and is very light. I ordered it from parts411.com for approximately $352. I will add more if it every decides to stay spring here in northwest Illinois and I gain more saddle time.
