My dealer has the Honda liveried Tour X4 on offer and I thought it would be rude not to treat myself

Schuberth E1 - BUT, I am finding it very hot. Riding in 28+ degree C is uncomfortably hot, even with all vents open.

It's not a bad helmet, but I find that it doesn't work real well for me on the AT: the airflow over the bike's screen catches the peak real bad at well below motorway speeds and puts a lot of pressure on my neck muscles. And I don't want to keep taking the peak on and off on this helmet because the fixing screws are very weak. Those problems disappear when using the AX8 with a naked bike, which shows that is not the helmet itself but the combination of helmet, bike and rider.
I borrowed an Arai XD4 to try out with the AT and although there is some buffeting there is a lot less pressure on my head and neck. It just seems to work better for me with the AT. Plus I've had the Arai before and it is a quality bit of gear.

Great fit for my head, good venting and quiet compromise. No buffeting for me with my AT and MRA Vario Touring Screen. It matches the color scheme of my rally red AT to boot.
Thanks guys, after much deliberation on price and fit and comfort and fit and comfort and fit and comfort, I chose the Shoei.
As I will be wearing it on long trips I figured I needed (did I mention) the fit and comfort for me, price no longer came into the equation.
Love it

NEXX XD1, just got it in yesterday, did a video on it, will post next monday. Pretty excited to get is and I will do a full review on it after i have some miles on it. But for me, one of the big selling points is the sun shade you can pull down. I have light sensitive eyes and shoving sunglasses into a helmet never really works right for me. I have been using a Bilt, from cycle gear, it works ok if your gong slow but tons of wind and other noise, so Looking forward to seeing how well this one will work. I looks awesome I will say that.

Thank you and have a blessed week
