Well, I didn't quite get the response from this that I expected, but
I tried on some helmets over the weekend, and ended up ordering another
HJC. I found that my head is too tall for Shoei helmets (tried both the
RF-1000 and the TZ-R). My chin visibly sticks out below the chin bar,
and the helmets just didn't feel right. I also decided that $600-700
was just too much for my wallet at the moment, so that ruled out the
Arai that fit me.
I ended up with the HJC AC-12, as it seemed to have better venting than
the CL-14 that I currently have. It also appears to be better
aerodynamically (less "tug" at speed).
Thanks for the input. I kind of wish I could have tried the Schuberth,
but I've yet to find one stateside...
