I have a Shoei RF1000 full face as well as a Shoei RJ-Air 3/4 helmet. In a span of three years I went from riding nothing to a Honda Elite 80 scooter, to a Helix 250 scooter, to a Shadow 750, and now a Goldwing GL1800. I used to use the 3/4 on the scooters and then went full face when I bought the Shadow. When it was time to buy a headset, I started doing some checking around. I asked J&M what kind of helmets their Goldwing owners were having equipped with headsets, and they said that 4 out of 5 were using 3/4 helmets (not full face). I also got the same response from my local Honda dealer when I asked him what kind of helmets Goldwing riders were buying. I was planning to use the full face helmet with the Goldwing and am now wondering if that's the right choice. I know it's ultimately my decision for my own reasons, but I am curious if it's true that so many Goldwing riders prefer the 3/4 instead of the full face, and if so, why. Even the brochures from Honda seem to show two riders wearing 3/4 helmets with headsets. I own both and can go either way, but would like to hear some feedback. Thanks.
