Hope this helps

Worlds Lightest flip-up helmet... Great ventilation, btw...
Just goes to show how helmet fit is such an individual thing. I tried one of those Lazers. Didn't fit my head at all squeezed the sides, couldn't get my glasses to sit properly. Replaced it with a Shoei Neotec. Love the fit, love the helmet.

Nothing wrong with a Shoei Neotec Greg! Great helmet, my choices were the Shoei, newest Nolan and the LaZer. Fit was perfect for me and I liked the light weight. But, like yours, lotsa good helmets on the market now.

i would be very pissed if i just dropped $20k on an RT and was told i shouldn't ride it.

Think about it...if the shortcut was easier, it would not be called a shortcut...it would just be "the way".

Indeed, however I'd be more upset if the manufacturer wasn't diligent in identifying the defect and recalling it.Note that BMW is doing this bas on a supplier report and is doing the swich without any prdding by anyone.

On the other hand, I was thinking about buying an RT... and now I'm glad I ddn't.

I'm just weeks away from 50,000 on my GS, I have yet to have a piece break other than the stupid fuel strip... which I have a fresh warranty on a replacement. From what I heard, I'll be using it.
