I purchased this helmet for riding my Suzuki V-Strom 650, mostly commuting but sometimes mountain roads including dirt. In Arizona, I like having a peak over the visor to provide some shade. The helmet fits perfectly, and I can wear glasses in the helmet without a problem. I was worried the peak might be noisy and catch the wind as I ride, but I haven't found either to be an issue. I wish the visor had a detent at just slightly open, about half way between closed and the first detent, but it's not a big deal.
Rides: 2012 Suzuki DL650 V-Strom
Yes, I recommend this product.
