Im thinking about...

Look into the Arai XD, it's meant for both.

Squanto84 has one, a 2009 model I think.

Yeah, too much drag and not enough wind protection at highway speeds on a regular dirt bike helmet.

they have to pass the same tests if dot and snell approved...

but it will create drag...

I have one that I wear every now and then on the street but I took the visor and turned it around...

if someone got a picture from the last HAK meet then you'll know what I'm talking about... but if you go to look behind you it will drag as well...


it's your call...
