I use the Bell Star. One of the best and most comfortable helmets I have ever used. The wife and I have matching ones, she loves her. I even like it better than the Shoei.

I have a few friends that bought a Star after wearing mine.

my bell star out-airflows my shoei x-11, but the price you pay is definitely the wind noise.

the bell is very nice and has some good features (like the magnetic strap holder and the visor adjustment mechanism), but the build quality of my shoei is a little better.

the bell star comes with a very nice helmet bag, btw.

I have the snell 2010 version of the matte black rally star:
bell star rally black front 400

I checked out the hjc rps-10, too, and it was about on par with the bell star in terms of fit and finish. I didn't ride in it, so no idea about the airflow or noise. the rps is a bit lighter than both the star and the x-11, though.

Oh, it is the one with the red and black graphics and a matte clear coat. Ugly skulls on the top, though.
