That is how I feel about the Arai. It is so comfortable and quiet I forget I am wearing a helmet. I like my LS2 modular for many reasons too, though.We have a motorcycle superstore here in Ohio called the Iron Pony. They carry about every size, and every color, of every motorcycle helmet on the planet I think.( plus anything else you could possibly want. Its really like a Walmart Superstore of motorcycle gear) You can spend a whole day in there trying on helmets. I know because I have done it lol. After trying on all of them, the only one that makes me go "Ahhhh" when I put them on are the HJCs. Guess I just have an HJC head. I've got 7 of them, full face, modular and open face, although I only wear the full face and open face helmets a couple times a year. I prefer the modulars for a multitude of reasons.
The best motorcycle helmet, is the one you gladly put on before every ride.
