As it is, you can't see the instruments without nodding your head. More than likely that helmet doesn't fit you properly or it would not be comfortable like that.
Disagree, that's how a good, tight fitting race helmet looks on your head. The chinbars on many brands (e.g. Arai, Shoei) tend to be short/high and the eyes are meant to sit low in the eyeport, fit for a sporty riding position. Just looks funny on a bike where you're sitting upright. Look at how Grand Prix racers wear their helmets, I'm pretty sure they wouldn't wear ill-fitting ones!



If your eyes are sitting near the top of the eyeport your helmet is too big and probably won't stay on your head in a crash. You (Yeps) might want another helmet with a lower chinbar or larger visor opening that's better suited to your riding position, but the fit looks fine IMO.

And vice versa. That was kind of my point. It would be nice to be able to have an adult conversation here. Instead it's like a junior highschool.

We do have adult conversations, right up until the point that you pipe in. You are the common denominator here. You are the immature one.

I'm sorry that I don't fit in with your little kindergarten group. I'll try to be stupid and anal like the supposed IN CROWD.

These guys must have been afraid of this:


Those damn sudden curves are dangerous!






Mostly I saw this over the weekend, with a few curves thrown in!
