Schuberth C3 Helmet - Is it really good for BWM 2012 K1600GT?
I'm looking to buy a couple of these helmets. Most reviews say that these helmets are awesome. In fact BMW recommends this as their preferred helmet.
But I am hearing feedback from owners on forums that this is the loudest helmet they have ever worn. Reading posts for hours I believe that the problem is the that the BMW has a fairing. This faring causes eddie currents to stream by the helmet and hit at angles causing extreme helmet noise. The proof was also interesting in that if on that same BMW you stood up on the front foot pegs while riding, the helmet now on straight in the air went nearly silent.
So my question is this?
What are my alternatives, or will all like helmets suffer the same fate on this bike.
Lastly, BMW makes their own helmet, also manufactured by Schumerth and sold as the "BMW System 6 Helmet". This is not for sale in America but can be ordered from England or Canada and shipped here.
I've got an awesome bike in the K1600 but I need a helmet that works. Any recommendations?
