Re: let's talk helmets
I had an Arai Quantum full face I used for years, which was by far the quietest and most comfortable helmet I ever had. A few years ago, I decided to try the modular route and bought a Nolan X-1002...what a noisy, poor fitting piece of crap that thing was! I did use if for a couple of years and finally got so tired of it, I went back to the Arai.
Fast forward to this summer and my purchase of a 2015 R1200RT. Included in the purchase was a negotiated 20% discount on accessories, so I bit the bullet and bought a Schuberth C3 Pro. I can't speak for other modulars (other than the Nolan), but the C3 Pro actually matches the Arai full face for quiet and comfort (even with the relatively noisy factory windscreen on the RT). If your budget can handle it (and the fit works for you, which is highly personal), I would enthusiastically recommend the C3 Pro.
