Helmet Suggestions

I'm about 6'-3" and when wearing my Arai Signet-Q, to see the dash I have look down; I have to move my head to do this, not just glance down with my eyes.

I don't remember this being an issue when I had my Shoei GT-Air, but in all fairness that was on a CBR600RR.

I'd like to get a helmet with more downward visibility. Has anyone had a similar experience?

The agv rossi helmets have great visual field. I have to look down a bit with my arai also.

How is the downward visibility with the GT-Air on the 1199?

Fine. I own 2 GT-Airs and will likely get a third, I love them. I can see the dash either upright or in a tuck.

I really like my Bell Star Carbon. It has great visibility, ventilation and is super light.

In a tuck I can just glance down with my Signet-Q, but not upright at all.

My last GT-Air was reimbursed by State Farm (...thanks asshole who rear ended me...) I may have to pick another one up.

I do miss the internal visor. Having to switch back and forth seems pretty old tech.
