This. The pick-and-pluck foam is great for skeeping stuff safe and secure. The fact you can throw a couple of padlocks on it means most people would move along to an easier target.

I already wear a Shoei RF1100 - still get the dry eyeballs. I guess they vent well enough that it causes issues. In 100+ degrees I need all the vents open - still like being in an oven IMO.
