Quick question- Can anyone feel the upper vents working? I can ride 60ish and open and close both front vents and the rear and not tell any difference in airflow. I can feel the front mouth vent but that is about it. None of the vents seem to be obstructed...

Another thing you can do which works to see if the vents are working is wet your hair. Then ride with them open then ride with them closed. You will actually feel the difference. I wondered if my vents were working as well. One day I took a shower and jumped on the bike, hair was still a little damp and I could tell for sure that the helmet was venting air across my head.

OVER? did you say "Over"? Nothing is over until we decide its over, was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell No!!!
