Hi. I would just like to share with everyone that i have had my new SHOEI XR-1000 for 2 hours and 57 minutes and i am in love. Had an ancient RXT that was falling apart ( literally ) off my head and used to catch the wind, attract birds of prey, sound like Cyclone Tracy inside, felt like it weighed half a tonne with a shell so big, my head looked like that depressed android from Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy! I tested my new helmet head on into a Road Train slip stream and.....NOTHING!!! Couldnt hear a darn thing! And i can lift my head up and sideways, i can see everything and i can even change the visor!! I CAN SEE OUT THE VISOR!! And most importantly... my head looks the right size!! I am wearing it while i write this post. *sigh* love is a beautiful thing MOD: Thanks for sharing but in future post your product review in the correct forum and not in general discussion.
