    My 2 cents on Helmet Fit and Ear protection

    I use the Big Ears, they are built from a foam casting of your own ear canals.

    Most of you are probably already aware that Arai (I do not know of other brands) have different thicknesses of pads to custom fit your individual head shape. This made a big difference in fit the for my wife and I. We both wear Arai Profiles but require different pad configurations.
    I learned of this at a bike show a couple of years ago. The factory trained salespeople were very knowledgeable which resulted in a great fit, this is a much better approach than buying a helmet off the shelf at a dealership, but the helmets without ear protection are still too noisy for the two of us.

    Hope I helped

    A review of the Shoei Neotec is now available @ Webbikeworld.com.

    Sounds like they were impressed.

    Neotech

    I was out at my friendly local dealers yesterday. He said the Neotech was due to be shipped at the end of next week.

    Sooooo I found the ultimate noise fix for me! I installed a 1990 K 75RTunder my rear end in place of my 1978 R80/7 and the noise issue vanished! I'm still going to upgrade my helmet thou. Boy oh boy at moderate speeds that K 75 is so quiet.
    Cheers

    Thumbs up Schuberth C3

    Another vote for the Schuberth C3 here. It is the lightest, most quiet and well ventilated helmet I've ever owned. I'm planning to add the SRC unit to complete
    the package. Very pricey, but a really nice helmet. Don

    Nick,

    Wait until late summer before you get too ecstatic about the K75. The residual radiator heat provides a nice sauna effect for the groin. However, the RT fairing is a sure cure for long distance wind load and noise.

    Enjoy

    The K75 may get a little warm, but the K1100LT gets quite HOT!!!

    The Shoei Multitec has always worked for me; actually my favorite helmet of all time but wished for the integral sunshield. Pre-ordered a Neotec and am hoping for the best...will advise.
