I'm going to tack onto this thread instead of starting a new one:
I'm looking for info on helmets to try to find something that fits better than my Shoei RF-1000. I've got a weird, large, mutant shaped head, and a lot of hair.
Another issue is that if I stick my chin out, it rubs on the chin bar, which is bad, I fear smashing my teeth out if I ever crash and hit my chin.
I'm looking for input on which helmets are long ovals, are an inverted "U" shape (I think my hair pulls the helmet back a lot) or have a pretty good gap for the chin bar, have swapable cheekpads, and come in size XXL. I've never found a good resource for info on helmet shapes beside Arai, (and this site
) and not many shops stock all styles in XXL so it's really hard to try them on. So far the best option looks like the Arai Profile. I was told that the RF-1000 was a long oval helmet, but after some digging, some reviews found it to be round. Ugh.
Hey Mr. Lithium Rob, can I just hang out in your warehouse for a day and try everything on?
I know, I'm not asking for a lot am I? Any other mutant-heads in the room? (and don't tell me to shave my head, not gonna happen.)
(Edited because I did some digging around and got some new info)
