Most of the ADV type riders use an Arai XD or similar, the hybrid with the larger opening to accommodate goggles, but also with a shield.
I first had one back in 1999, before they were sold in the US as the XD.
I had my Dad mail me one from the UK, the Arai DS/r.
I'm a big fan of Arai, that one saved at least my jaw in a crash.
