Re: New helmet input.
I had an "inexpensive" flip front helmet for a couple of years, same problem as you described, it would start to press in the front of my skull and eventually start to burn. My wife also had problems because the helmet set so low on her head, it was difficult for her to turn her head with her leather jacket on while seated on the back of the bike. When I sold the GL1800 I included the helmets because of the intercom, and because we really werent happy with them. I got such a great deal on the LT, I took my wife to the MC shop and we tried on helmets. She loved the Nolan N102, and I liked it too. We have been riding for a couple of years with the nolans, and they have proved to be very comfortable for us. I have not had any of the problems with discomfort while wearing for long periods of time. I would recommend you give them a try.
