Picked up a new Schuberth C3 (Medium, matte black, w/bluetooth com) at the Greenville motorcycle show. First impressions: Quieter on my R1200GS (stock windshield + Tourtech spoiler) than my 5 yr old Shoei. Still need earplugs. Com system's sound level is okay w/earplugs, but wish it were a bit louder. "Quality" is good for GPS voice commands & cell phone, but poor for music. No bass, but it sounds better than I do. Love the flip-down shade. Overall, was it worth $1000? Sure, you only live once, and I haven't found anything better. And, of course, it makes me look cool as heck.
