Helmet Noise, is it just me? I have a full Z1R. Nice enough helmet but the wind noise is over the top. I ride every day and would consider a new helmet if someone knows of one that fits so the wind noise is gone. I would rather not wear ear plugs. Thanks

I have a Shoei TZ-R and I don't have problems with noise.

I don't think everyone has the same definition of what is "quiet" that said you just got to borrow friends helmets and see which one is quietest/ comfortable for you

Well thank you all for the input. I'll just have to try some out.
What I was refering to as far as noise goes it the wind. Seems like over 60MPH it is coming in between my jacket and the helmet making it sound as if I need to put ear plugs in. Again, thank you for the advise.

I have a Shoei RF-1000 which is VERY quiet, but the ventilation isnt that great. I just ordered an AGV XR-2 Rossi replica which I think will be a little bit more noisy. When you get a helmet that is quiet you sacrifice ventilation. Its nice to find a happy medium. Good luck!

That AGV will be 100 times quieter than that Shoei. I bought 2 RF-1000's and ended up returning them and buying a new AGV XR-2. I Also have an older Rossi Replica XR-2.
