All a bit moot, since the original poster after nearly a month hasn't replied to anyone.
Would love to get to those Italian Alpine roads,

I know what you mean about heat!!! I live > 1200km from those Alps and during summer we have our good dose of heating from the Sun and from African winds. But usually we say better safe than sorry and in case of an incident – I suppose our traffic is a little worse than yours – having long pants, jackets and maybe gloves can help. That's the ratio of my reply.

I meant no attack to you or your ideas … and if I was rude I am sorry !!!!
English is not my primary language and maybe I used wrong words…

now riding Ducati Monster 1200S (m.y. 2018 )

Ex Honda NSR 125 F (1991), Yamaha FZ6 (2007-2009), Yamaha Fz1 Fazer ‘Laguna Seca’ (2009-201

I didn't think you were rude, it's all good. many people, including yourself, offered great ideas about helmets.

I just thought to include the possibility that, if considering an open face, and the point of the original post was to keep wind force down. so I pointed out that most clip on shields were not good for stopping wind in face.

Totally agree with you on safety of full face, but at 65 years old, my riding is much more sedate than when a young buck.
Good to know my monster has capabilities beyond mine at present.

i migliori saluti

ps. hope that's correct.

I don't even like listening to music while riding. The bass note of the exhaust.. The whoosh of air as the front wheel comes up..
I feel like I'm riding a freaking dragon. It's fantastic.

But I'm an old man who wears glasses, so I wear a shoei neotec 2, modular
It's not as quiet as a single piece, but it's quieter than my previous helmets. That said I can still feel and hear everything, and that's how I want to keep it for now

Now if I could figure out early morning lens fogging, I'd be a happy guy.

Like all have said , get the helmet that fits. I bought An Arai Defiant-x, and i noticed less wind than my Shoei RF 1200. But it was about 350 more, came with a 2 hour fitting, well worth it!!! enjoy the ride.
