A new brain bucket
claustrophobia while wearing a full face helmet, I started shopping around for a 3/4 helmet a while ago. I was very much in favor of the (pricey) ARAI SZ RAM3 until - by accident -I discovered a review for the NOLAN N-43 while virtually riding pillion on the Motorcycle Paradise Blog. The N-43 is available as a crossover with a removable chin bar, and comes with a clear shield to the chin plus an integrated sun shield on the inside of the helmet. It is considerably lightweight, and the chin strap has actually a quick-release lock. And Bonus, it cost 50% less than the RAM3.
