Would this helmet work for me?
While most Shoei helmets are built for sport/racing style motorcycles, they are worn by all types of riders around the world. The brand new RF-SR model is made with the upright rider in mind so if you do not have a "sport style" motorcycle this would probably be the best model for you. The air vents are strategically placed higher on the forehead of the helmet and can be open and closed. Even if you are not necessarily going as fast as a speed racer keep in mind these helmets are built to be put through the most. There is no such thing as a helmet that is "too safe".
