So a few weeks back I get the new bike and figure a new cap would be needed also. A quick trip to the shop and I was trying on a few caps priced between 200-300 bucks. They were ok but just did not give me that warm and fuzzy. the sales cat says "you want to feel comfort?" what was I to say? so we went over and he say "try this on" it was like a pillow..... Shoei Neotech and man is it nice. Its a mudular with a built in sun shield. Clearly more than a guy needs for Dual Sporting but its great and lhas lots of air flow. I once again stuck with my "be truthfull to the wife" and told her what it cost. This time that again did not work out so well and I am thinking that in the future I am going to resort to false advertising when it comes to what things costs. The girl found no humor how every with the sun shield I do have plans to be a Star Wars Fighter Pilot next time I need a costume.

That's a nice helmet, man. There's a lot to be said for comfort. When it comes to helmets, the low-ends will suffice, but once you put on a really nice helmet, you can definitely tell the difference. I don't have one, but I've tried a few of them on here and there.

If your wife doesn't know anything about motorcycle helmets, tell her the protection offered is commensurate with the price and that you spent that much only because you wanted to be as safe as you possibly can for her sake.

I'm assuming it has the internal flip up/down sun shield? They're pretty cool, aren't they? I use mine all the time.

Congratulations on getting such a nice helmet. Enjoy it!

Try the new Nolan modular for this year. Built in retractable visor and a heck of a lot less than the Shoei.
