Helmet debate

So I've got the mental debate of which helmet to bring on my Sturgis trip this summer. I enjoy the peace, solitude, comfort, and Bluetooth of my modular but keep worrying about the heat and weight for an extended trip. Thoughts?

Take both you need the full face for the weather unless you like your face taking a beating. Or go without a helmet in Sturgis most do.

Take two lids I do if the weather is going to be up and down.
Nice to have a full face for windy rainy hwy rides.
Even better to have a beanie for those fry an egg on the pavement days.

It's no debate for me. On long travels I love the full face. When I'm cruising in Sturgis I ride without mostly.

I'm so used to my FF, I don't even think about the heat, good ventilation helps.

Sounds to me you already prefer teh Modular. I'd wear it & take a second helmet just in case you wanna swap out for a gas stop or 2......

Ok, if you do not know about my helmet, you must be new here.

It goes everywhere with me. I usually leave the visor up, unless it is raining or REALLY cold. No other lids, just ole' yeller on the dome.

In theory, Theory and Reality are the same. In reality, they are different.

Jack, that's the Nolan 104 you're talking about? Been looking at some retro 3/4 but haven't ruled out the modular. Got the big head syndrome and have problems with 2XL fitting. FF and Modular are even tighter. Would you say it runs large or true to size?

Yeah +1...the modular that fits my melon is against my chin when closed and thats not only uncomfortable but wouldn't be real good in a crash. I do like the mods though, wish I could find one to fit. I have a 3/4 I really like. Shield comes all the down to the bottom of my chin when closed and has the pull down sunshade too.

But I digress. In answer to your question sounds like you should take two!
