I Ride: '16 ZX-6R 30th Anniversary
I've used Shoei XR1100's since their release. I've had 4 of them... Maybe 5... A lot. I love them. They no longer make them so I was forced to buy it's unofficial replacement the NXR. I love it.
It's pretty much the same as the XR1100 except it's quieter, has slightly different visor lock and vents (which I leave open all the time anyway so it doesn't matter) and it's got new designs (I prefer the old ones though).
The only downside is that the ear cut-outs are slightly smaller this year. Slightly. They're filled for free this time which is comfy, but in helmet speakers don't quite fit in them so I can't use them with the Sena 20s, I have to use headphones instead. This is fine on long journeys, but short ones with the lid on and off all the time it's a pain.
In short, overall, if you like Shoe's, you'll love this.
Here is mine, then the Mrs'.
