Maybe go with something NOT a modular?
I was a "return to motorcycling" rider 13 years ago at age 40. The helmet I chose was a Nolan N100 modular. The fit was perfect, and very comfortable. The noise was unbelievable, and yes, the windshield height on the bikes I was riding most definitely played a factor.
Consider trying a one piece, non-modular full face style. I picked up an HJC CL15 a few years ago almost entirely because of how it fit me and was so comfortable. I've come to really like it.
I [B]always [/B]wear earplugs, and never listen to headphones or music. It took me awhile to be converted 100%, but I am now. It isn't just the wind that's an issue for noise, it's also the traffic. I commute a lot on my bike. Getting next to, or passing an 18 wheeler or other trucks on the freeway can be a loud event. Why not save your ears if you can?
DISCLAIMER: I'm not trying to be an advocate for either an HJC helmet or a non-moduler full face. Just sharing what works for me. I am, however, a HUGE advocate for wearing earplugs. Honestly, I just use the Max's green foam ones. They work great for me. Use the same ones out at the trap range.
