    Wow! Lovely.
    Mama always told me not to look into the eyes of the sun...but Mama, that's where the fun is!

    I'm running a Schuberth E1 modular helmet that I like but I d have to say the ventilation is not great. I've never run any comms. Welcome from Newfoundland.

I successfully completed my MSF Basic Rider course at the BMW Performance Center in Spartanburg and just received my motorcycle endorsement on my license. I anticipate doing street riding (no interstates for now) until I gain more experience. I'd welcome your collective thoughts about the best full-face or modular helmet. Living in South Carolina I'm also looking for a helmet with excellent ventilation.

    Thanks
    Welcome. Don't know what you're riding, but if you're on an adv bike, the Arai XD4 is a good choice if you're seeking ventilation (along with some of the best protection you can buy).

    Miller7201, congratulations on the F900XR! I will be interested to see what you think after you have ridden that machine for a while. Sure looks nice. I am considering getting a modern motorcycle and the XR looks attractive.

    Thanks, I'm looking forward to it. When I took my MSF class I asked my instructors about it. They said it was a good fit for me, just enough power to have fun but not so much as to be problematic for a new rider. I'm also a relatively big guy and they confirmed it would have no trouble accommodating my 6'4" frame.

    Congrats on passing the MSF course. I've found the Arai helmets offer the greatest range of helmet shell shapes so you can get fitted with the shape that's proper for your head shape. Plus they're excellent for safety. That's my $.02.
