My experience is opposite...my street helmet buffets badly on my Tiger, whereas my dual sport helmet is far steadier up to 80 and above (I start getting some lift at 80). Noise is a big issue though...

If it's below 50 degrees, or I'm not the first one in line, I need goggles...I can't keep the visor down once I stand up and/or start working off road due to fogging.
