Look into the pinlock system too. Prevents fogging on cool mornings and you can carry several different tints or colors in way less space than spare shields. More and more brands of helmets are coming with pinlock shields already installed.

I have both a Shoei RF-1100 and a Nolan N104 with pinlocks. The one on the Shoei is dark smoke but I have a clear on the Nolan as that helmet has the built in visor. I think the Nolan setup is great for the street as I commute daily in all weather so I don't have to change inserts, however the Shoei is mainly for the track so it doesn't get changed that often.

I just got a HJC RPHA-10 ... omg this thing is so light and the air flow is awesome. No inner shield but I just throw on a pair of shades if I think I am going to stay out where I might get caught after dark.

The dark shields scratch real easy ... in my experience so far. The bug guts and rocks put nice little scratches in them. My HJC CL-16 (previous helmet) has a nice scratch from a dirt clod that hit me from a dump truck.

Try em all on. Not sure where you live but Motorcycles Unlimited has a good selection to try on lids and per his posts Wild West Honda seems to have a good selection. You will for sure feel the difference between a 100 lid and 5-600 dollar lid just trying them on. I went cheap the first time and it only took a year before I splurged for a better helmet.

2Wheel Toyz has the best "in stock" selection IMO. Very good pricing as well.

I've been rocking the Shoei Neotec for about 6 months now. Love it. I bought the modular helmet as I wear glasses that they are a lot easier to take on and off as half of the helmet slides up versus a full face helmet. Can't go wrong in my opinion, I had the HJC helmet previously, and it just wasn't fitting my head and glasses well. At the end of the day, it's up to what is comfortable for you.

I have the Arai helmet. I chose it because it fits my head perfectly. Much better if you go to a local store and try some helmets.
