So I have had this helmet for over a year and thought I would give an update: I also experienced the tightness in the jaw area, but a year later they have broken in so much, I feel it no longer fits correctly. It is now pretty loose on my head. It is really noisy on my street bike. I ran it with the peak off and it was still unbearable without ear plugs. I like the modular design and the drop down sun shield. I find I like a modular design so I bought a different modular for the street, a Klim TK1200. while not an offroad helmet, I much prefer the Klim. It came with a transitions shield and a pinlock insert. It is substantially lighter than the Scorpion (Klim is carbon fiber), and it is a little bit quieter. I still wear earplugs. It fits my head very well. The venting is better. It was about $100 more than the Scorpion but worth it to me. I now am saving the Scorpion for dirt. I will probably get some new cheekpads soon.
