Just bought myself a new full face helmet called the Shoei GT Air.

I read and checked as many reviews as possible before buying this helmet - and by far the GT got heaps of praise!!

Apart from the obvious safety reason, I bought this helmet because of the drop down inner tinted visor and the fact that the GT keeps most of the wind noise out thanks to its design.

Just thinking about a Full Face verses an Open Face - it would have to be better protection which includes not having your nose burnt by the sun - I learnt the hard way!

I have a snell full face helmet I was required to have for Porsche track days. I'm not sure if that is still good for road use on a motorcycle. Its about 10 years old I think. I do however, have a couple of DOT approved Nolan helmets I purchased for the recent MSF course. One is an open face, kinda retro Half Helmet, and the other is modular, with a full face shield. Once I get used to the NineT enough to really take it on the road, I probably should get a new full face like a Shoei or Arai.

I'd like to hear some updates as time goes by with that helmet.:) Can I safely assume that it is compatible with the pin lock insert? Or does it come with antifog coating on the clear visor! I really like the idea of no visor change come dusk. :cool: Clever choice, Café Racer:D
