I know that this is probably a long shot and that helmets are one of those things with a ton of personal preference, but I was hoping to find some folks with experience in a few helmets. I have had my eye on a Shoei RF-1200 for a few months. I went in to my local cycle shop and was chatting with one of the sales guys, and he said that the 1200 was a more aggressive helmet that is really meant for people who are leaned forward on a bike. He pointed me at the RF-SR, and then at the Arai Defiant-X and Regent-X because he mentioned that they were designed for someone who sits more upright. I have the Harley equivalent of the Scorpion Covert (I think Scorpion made these for H-D and allowed them to put their name on it....then mark it up 25%), but it’s far louder than I would like. So these are the questions that I have: 1)was this guy correct that the 1200 wouldn’t be ideal because of the design, 2) even if that’s true does it make that much of a difference, and 3) what has been everyone’s experience of noise levels between those helmets? Thanks All!
