A Nolan Trilogy is on my wish list. I have tried one on and it fit my head very well. The field of view is very good with the large visor too.

Full face all day every day!

I love my Shark S700.

I wanted a vision R because your field of view is HUGE!!! but I couldn't afford it at the time. I got Mine in the UK and it comes with a 4 star SHARP rating which blows the dick off of DOT and SNELL's minimum requirements. I've ruined a few helmets in my time and my advise is buy a good damn helmet. Who cares if you look cool if you've got brain damage or a broken jaw.

Arai profile in basic white.  I've worn other brands, but Arai actually makes their helmets to fit different shaped heads- each model is different, from round to oval so you can find one that actually fits you properly.  That's also why you should try on several helmets/brands to find what fits you the best.  My noggin is more oval, my old Bell Star was an XL, my Arai is a Med.  It's also a lot easier to wear if it feels good!

gsdapollo: do you have a link other than youtube (blocked at work)?

dane: I couldn't find it or any other Bell local either.  Got it from leatherup.com and they have a great return policy so I figured if it didn't fit then no problem.  It fits great.  Just wish I had a bike to try it on.  I get a little claustrophobic in full face helmets when there is no air moving through them, like when I'm starting my bike, so I thought the modular would be great.  I don't feel comfortable riding in anything but a full face.

Good to hear.  Do you have a rounder shape head or more oval.  Mine is definately more oval...

got a full faced shoei. but i really want to get a 3/4 with big metallic flake that so ugly its cool, to wear on special occasions. i have seen what happens to guys who land on their face with a 3/4, its no pretty. but sometimes you just gotta take chances i guess.

I wear a 3/4 Bell around town, but my main helmet that I use is a Shoei RF1100.  It is one badass lid.  You can find good deals on them, I think I paid $150 for mine.

Ditto on the RF1100.  It's a comfy helmet, but has a fair amount of wind noise.  I'll be choosing something else for my next one.  My buddy let me wear his Arai RX-Q on a 6 hour round trip and I loved it.  Definitely on a level above the RF1100.

One more question, when you tried it on, was the sun visor really small?  On the photos and reviews Ive seen of it, it looks like it doesnt come down very far leaving a pretty big open view with no sun protection...  What did you think?

It seem adequate. It is the same sun visor they use on their full face helmets so it doesn't look as big with that large clear visor. If you look at their other helmets you will have a better idea of how good the coverage is.
