Some better photos here, lot #46:
http://issuu.com/ballauction/docs/sk...olor=%23222222

Click on the lot photo to enlarge. It looks very clean.

Notice the sun damage from sitting in that window to lot #45. But red is more prone to that kind of fading.

Alright, I need your opinions. I'm looking at getting another modular helmet to replace my old Veemar Jiano which is starting to fall to pieces. Here are the two that I'm primarily looking at:

1) Shoei Neotec, and 2) Nolan N104.

Anyone have any experience with either of these helmets? I'm also open to suggestions of other models to look at. My big criterias are: 1) NOISE, 2) water proof, 3) weight, 4) fogging, 5) ability to use a pin-lock visor (if fogging is an issue), etc...

Thanks all.

NO fucking way I would get out of that auction with my marriage intact. SO MANY great bikes.... Probably the only new crated CX500turbo in the entire world. MT250 with a title.... DAMN>..

From what I've read.....

Add the Schuberth to that list. It costs a bit more than the Shoei (my choice), but is said to be well worth it.

I have/had two different magazines that did comparison tests of modular helmets in the past year and the two you list, along with the Schuberth, were right at the top.
