I'm a brand new rider after a 40 year lay off and I hate my new modular helmet. It fits great but the wind noise is just too much to take. I have even tried ear plugs but no help. I'm not ready to "dime" the maker yet because it just may be my fault. First it is a major manufacturer and I only paid $160.00 for it new so maybe I didn't invest enough money. I went back to the shop to ask what I could do and was told that modular helmets are like this. I've tried to adjust the windscreen on my 1150RS and this helped a little but seemed to add more buffeting. I don't know how I could take several hours of riding at cruise speed and not go crazy. I bought the BMW because of the smooth sound but I can't hear anything. Please help the new guy.
