I love this helmet so much that I don't want to use my full face (which cost four times the Rogue did) ever again!
It's ridiculously hot in our country so full-faced helmets can be very uncomfortable. The airflow the Rogue provides obviously is the best one can hope for.
From what I noticed, I seem to be able to ride with it just as fast as I could when with a full-face; that is to say that the considerable increase in wind drag isn't enough to make this helmet unusable at speed. Granted, I ride a Monster so I can only go so fast before the wind gets too uncomfortable REGARDLESS if I was wearing a full face or not.
This also survived a get-off. My jacket took most of the damage, my head [helmet] just scraped along the road - so no cracks on it; only paint in some parts got ground off. It actually added character to the helmet since now it really looks like it's been to a war ;) Maybe they should offer a "distressed" graphics version of it down the road.
The structural integrity seems to still be intact, but I'll probably replace it when I get the chance (it's not available in our country) And let's be honest, this is one of the best looking lids out there - and at $250, it's not like you're breaking the bank should you have to replace it. You simply cannot lose with this helmet!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Unfortunately for me, and fortunately for you readers, I was able to experience a get-off while using this bag.
The entire left side of my monster got pretty banged up as I slid right off the road from the pavement; various parts of the bike were loosened or broken off but the US30 was still secured to the tail like nothing happened.
While I wasn't quite unlucky enough to have the bag itself scrape through the ground to test it's durability, at the very least it's a good testament to how effective and secure their mounting system is: if it can stay in place even through a rough slide - it will jolly well stay in place during normal and even aggressive riding.
It's pretty huge; perfect for really long rides (you probably won't even have to attach anything else to it), but it may be a bit too big if you just plan to sleepover someone's place. I'm planning to get a US20 shortly to bridge that gap.
Also, while the picture shows it mounted sideways, there's also no trouble mounting it straight - at the very worst you've just made yourself a surface you can lean against when you're ripping through the road.
The only "difficult" thing about this bag is the first time you try installing the mounting straps to your subframe; there are a lot of ways to do it, but it'll take some trial and error to find the exact spots you'd prefere it'll be sticking out from - to be both aesthetically acceptable as well as provide enough tension to the straps to the bag when mounted.
Yes, I recommend this product.
