Good on all of you that are happy with this helmet. I know I was not and a huge part of that reason is because it simply is the wrong shape for my head.

I just had a GMAX gm58 helmet delivered. $53.35 from BIKEBANDIT.I ordered it on 10/28/08 and it arrived today. Could,nt get the color I wanted so got the yellow,black, gray. It looks really good. I was surprised at the quality. Much better than my old Bieffe.Not ridden the bike with it on yet, but its really comfortable.I will never pay big $$$$ again for a helmet. Oh I did read the Motorcyclists article on DOT V SNELL seems we have been getting robbed for years by the overpriced helmet makers.

Look for a N101 or N102 instead of the N103 and you'll save a ton on the Nolan... I have an N101 and an N102, and am eyeballing the N103...
I like the N101 more than the others (covers more in the rear & chin areas; that external visor on the N102 is cool in the dry, but sucks in the rain (if you flip it up, the rear ledge drops rain into the edge of visor-to-helmet edge), and the bottom edge [of the external tinted visor] tends to wear a line in the main visor over a few thousand miles when down.

i got my nolan and love it. only regret....didn't buy 2.

i got a x801, will keep it and go for a modular design. you can pick the x801 up for cheap. I got mine about 10 months ago for $130-$150, then tack on the two screens($40 each). But be advised if you want a smoked visor, get a dark smoked or dark green as they say. I have the us importer info if you cannot find them.

I do however like the half smoked visor version on the n models, though i think i can buy a pivot kit and make my helmet the same way....might do that next season.

nolan's site sucks, well mostly as it has been down for nearly a year.
