helmet questions???

I was wondering if anybody else has issues with wind noise in their helmets? when I bought my bike it came with a hjc cl14, it was so loud that I hated to ride, when I moved to houston gp motoring (thanks a bunch) hooked me up with a icon mainframe hooligan helmet, and there was a huge difference, tons quieter and better fitting, but after while I got used to it and it seems loud now, so I go visit the nice folks at gp again and got a arai rx7 and that's loud! im starting to think its my bike, does anyone else on here ride a tl1000r?? can comment on what they use for a helmet.. or maybe my yankee northern head is shaped funny?? I don't know.. any ideas??

thanks guys
and also a great thanks to gp motoring for helping out a broke collage kid.

matt

Some of the noise comes from the scoops and vents some comes from the air flowing around by your chin and some may be from around your ears.
If the helmet fits right it will help alot.
In any case ear plugs are a good idea, because some day your ears will be old (like mine and geezers) and you will be glad you took care of them.

I work at the airport so believe me, we've all had training about hearing protection. As Martha Stewart would say, "It's a good thing".

Hmm. Never wore a helmet that was "quiet" at freeway speeds. So I am guessing they are full of . Ear plugs good idea. I will put earbuds in sometimes. But those are much better for your ears then the existing noise. At least its more enjoyable to listen to though.
