over the years i have had many helmets full face, 3/4 and half. rite now for a full face a have a hjc modulare not sure what model but was not cheep but most of the time i wear a datona skull cap in flat black with a drop down shield nice helmet and comfortable. when i had my accident in 2016 i had a cheep 30 dollar half helmet on but it was dot certified i got thrown over his hood and landed about 5 to 10 feet on the other side hit head first and the helmet saved my life granted helmet was destroyed but no head injurys.

    I am hoping that now some of the restrictions in my area seem to be loosening up, I will be able to go to a shot and try some things on.

      Just bought a Daytona blue skull flames to replace my old Skid Lid. Love the fit of the Daytona....very comfortable and like the chin strap. Better than the double d- ring design

      My wife and I both wear full face Shoei. We also have a com system.
      Ever since I slid my full face Shoei across the pavement with no injuries to my head from a high side on a CBR900RR I haven't worn anything else

      3/4: Biltwell Bonanza or Arai classic V (loudest helmet ever) most of the time. But I always wear a face covering bandana to avoid a sunburn stripe down the center of my face.  Full face if I'm on my FZ1.

      Just ordered an rpha 11 carbon.  2.8 lbs!

      Daytona blue skull flames half helmet and a Bell Qualifier full face black with red stripes.  Wife wears an Outlaw with purple butterflies (don't laugh) and she has an HJC full face when I used to ride a sportbike
