Vemar Jano Evo TC modular helmet?

Apparently these are oval, in shape, like my Arai. If any of you have ever used this helmet I would be appreciative of your insight(s) regarding how well it is made, ventilation, etc.

Thanks!!

MC tag...discount on tolls.

I am pretty sure that a MC tag, registered to a motorcycle, gets a discount in New York. I do!
I do not know if that is true in other states.

2014 Tenere

I looked at the '14 ES for 15,100...plus state sales tax. I think the basic '14 was 14,100. Why buy an older bike without the "fixes" and cruise control for a grand or two less. I wouldn't!
