I'll show you mine if you show me yours! :P What do you wear?

My favourite lid is my Airoh GP, but she is getting a bit old now so I bought am X-lite X-802RR Ultra Carbon. Both are great, well ventilated and light. The Airoh has a slightly smaller shell size when you place them side by side. The X-Lite is carbon, so it is black. Not sure how hot my head is going to get as we approach our summer. Time will tell, I guess.

Looks nice, what do you think of it?
I've got the shoei xr1100 and it's a superb helmet, just wish it was newer (for the track) and it had a sun visor.

The GT-Air is the best helmet I've ever owned. I liked it so much I bought a gray one for riding on my other bikes.

I usually buy Scorpion helmets from Revzilla when they are blowing out last year models but my current scorpion doesn't fit me as well as my previous one.

My daily driver is a Neotec Shoei in the way-cool black-yellow. A few years back I took a 15.5-hr non-stop (but for gas) ride and almost wore my ears off taking my Arai Quantum on-off. This moved me to the flip-face helmet.
