I'm between this and an Arai. Seriously leaning towards the Nexx. Nice to know Chief has a hook up! I'd like to find a way to try one on, but I don't know anywhere near me.

Re: Choosing a helmet...

I've got two Bell Carbons so far and I love them. Will be picking up an AGV lid next.

That's what I keep hearing. I think the Bell Carbons are awesome with the exception of wind noise so I'll probably think the AGV is like heaven and tits once i put it on my noggin.
