One long day of riding in the rain (WABDR) killed MX helmets for me. I tried a scorpion modular the next two trips (IDBDR and ORBDR) and loved being able to pop it open when we stopped on 100 degree days, but hated when the locking mechanism got jammed up with dirt. My last two trips (Canada and ORBDR) I’ve used a Shoei Hornet X2 and love it. I ride with the visor open with sunglasses on 90% of the time. For long highway slogs or rainy days the shield is invaluable. For dusty riding I pop up the face shield and throw on my goggles. Good luck!
