The Arai Signet Q it is...
I have literally have spent hours looking locally at helmets from Arai, HJC, Schuberth and Shoei. First the selection was pathetic, none of the newer models and *if* I was lucky enough they had both a L and XL in stock (not the color I wanted which is white btw).
I ended up taking the day off of work and rode the K12GT to the Americade in Lake George where "The Service Pavilion" out of PA had a trailer. The salesman (Robert) measured me, and looked at the size and shape of my melon - suggested that I the Signet Q and after a couple of questions, swapped out the helmet from a L to an XL so I had more chin room, swapped the standard cheek pads and liner for a 12mm cheek pad and 12mm liner...
Let's just say it fits nicely. They didn't have a white one in stock so I paid him for the helmet ($620-10% = $558) which INCLUDES the proper components to fit me. Will be shipped in 5 business days from their PA warehouse.
I appreciate all the feedback!
