Does BMW do anything like that in the BMW Touring apparel range ?

Systems like the Sena SRL2 found in the Shoei gt air 2 are pretty neat as they're fitted into the helmet so they're really neat and tidy. Downside is you're limited to using that system and it's non transferable.

Almost all decent helmets have a recess in the liner for speakers. The new cardo freecom 4+ I fitted in my new shoei gt air is incredible and tops the list in sound quality and volume with the JBL provided speakers. Highly recommended.

When life throws you curves, lean into them.

Yes I have 2 aria I love the fit especially as I wear glasses but they don't seem to do a model with integral sun visor which is a shame.

yeah, Arai doesn't do that, they believe it compromises the integrity of the shell.

I wanted an internal visor and went with the shoei gt air (first gen). You can pick them up cheaper now that the gen2 has been out a while.

Kali Naza Carbon Fibre composite, the only helmet with the Australian invented conehead protection within; as for noise, all helmets are noisy to some degree, but rather than bugger around with earplug, I cut some lambswool to the right size and shoved it in the earhole rebate in the helmet and that gets rid of most of it.
