New Shoei X-11
New Shoei X-11 Eddie Lawson arrived today. I've been wearing a Nolan flip for the past few years and wanted to go back to a full face. I apparently have a "Shoei" head. Tried them all on but the X-11 was the best and most comfortable. Got the Eddie Lawson mdl. It's red/white and blue and goes nice with the blue GT. Very comfortable, lots of vents that actually work and extremely light weight. Now my noggin ain't that sophisticated to distinguish a few ounces here and there, but this feel very light, pretty quiet at speed. I am completely satisfied.
Just a word of warning Don't chew gum wearing a snug helmet. I was used to chewing gum in the flip and guess didn't remember that ff helmets are tighter-not in a bad way-just cocoon like. Yea, bit the inside of my cheeks--really hurt. No more gum chewing.
