    Could not refuse the deal...I wanted a flat black one, I was going to order one, but they had this in stock, just got it in actually....so they gave me a deal and I snatched it up.

    The fit is awesome, it feels great on. I love it.

    This is it, the picture makes it look a little different, the wording on the side is not as prominent at all...you can just barley see it, which is what I wanted..just black.

    I already ordered the dark smoke visor for it as well.

    Yeah they are...they are huge in the UK, I think they are just getting over here as of last year...they have an awesome fit...the front of the helmet is much closer to your face I find...after I tried it on I knew I wanted it...

    Flower...how come you don't like them?

    Same reason you just pointed out. I tried one on a few months back when I was at the dealer and I felt clostraphobic in it. The shield and mouthpiece are extremely close to my face. I've had a Shoei RF900 and Arai Quantum-F and loved them both. They just seemed to fit me better. Personal preferance I guess...

    Yeah for sure...

    I think the reason I like the tight fit and the close face is that my last lid, after it got broken in was all loose and shit...fit like it was floating on my head...was always moving around and shit...

    I really wanted one of the Rossi AGV's....like you do, but without getting to try it on, and having to order from away, I was kinda hesitant...they are hard to get in Canada as well...

    But they are very nice...and you know there will be no one with the same one.

    Usually thouse that find shoei and Arai comfortable, don't like Souomy, and typically don't find shark the most comfortable. Out of those 4 brands most people usually have a 2 brand head.

    I've had a few Souomy helmets on in the past when they first came out, and I hated them for the same reasons I stated about me disliking the sharks. So your theory sounds about right.

    It's definitly a head shape thing. I know from trying on a bunch of different types of SA helmets that its the same as what you guys describe. Different makes fit different heads better. My head fits a Bell. I don't know if they make bike helmets or not
