Seems kinda tough to pick a helmet for a long tour that includes both paved and unpaved riding...
I find it good with the current set up but have been wear Arai tour x helmets for almost 5 years with different bikes and it has been good and bad. With R1150GS it was bad but the addition of a touratek screen extension help a lot. On my 00 Africa twin with standard screen it was good but on the 99 Africa twin with touring screen it hit me right in the helmet so had to switch back to standard screen.

It really is down to the air flow and how tall or short you are.

I've worn it on a street bike and nearly had it snap my neck when turning your head.
