Shoei Qwest XL.
Fits my large long-oval head perfectly. Amazingly, the RF1100 did not- the XL was too small, and the XXL was way too large.
I've owned all kinds, I'm just not willing to pay what Arai charges anymore when a Shoei is just as good.
The Qwest ranks among one of the quieter and lighter helmets I've ever owned, and cost me just over $300 for the solid silver.

"This old engine has a nickels-and-dimes sound to it. As if there were a lot of loose change flying around inside. Sounds awful, but it's just normal valve clatter. Once you get used to that sound and learn to expect it, you automatically hear any difference. If you don't hear any, that's good." -- Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
