So this past weekend i had a good chance to ride for a few hours in my new
Shoei RF-1100. In days past i thought the Arai and Shoei brands were over priced and a rip-off. Not any more
What a difference it makes compared to my cheapy Zox and not so cheap Scorpion EXO-1000. That Scorpion was just too heavy. The Shoei is nice and light and so quiet.
Closing the face shield was like in a car when you roll up the window. Always needed earplugs for long trips on the hwy but dont really need them now.
I guess a down side is on a sunny and cool day, wearing sunglasses fog up really quick when you stop. But i imagine it will be fine in warmer weather and not the around 10c it was on the ride.
