Hope this helps

Lazer Monaco Helmet Review - webBikeWorld

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.

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.
