What type of helmet do you wear?

Here's my current one (it's not bad, but without a windshield it feels like it's going to fly off because of the small visor):

I am thinking of getting this one for my next one, for when the weather gets a bit chillier (and plus, it kinda reminds me of my Army aviation days):

2016 Toyota Sienna SE - hers
2002 BMW 325i - his
1994 Chevrolet Silverado K1500 Sportside Z71 - whoevers vehicle is in the shop
2009 Harley-Davidson Sportster XL883 Low (Vivid Black) - his
2007 Harley-Davidson Sportster XL883 Low (Pearl White) - hers
2011 Tao Tao 50 - whoevers bike is in the shop
2007 Reinell 186 FNS - Aly's and Susi's (our two Miniature Schnauzers)
1995 Fleetwood Flair 27R - EVERYBODY'S

Scorpion EXO-400. I don't like anything other than full-face, don't feel protected enough.

Sadly, this garage has destroyed it.....damn door is too low hanging. In just a year it's got scratches and scuffs all over it.

Carbon Kevlar H-D half helmet most of the time (like on my commute in a few mins).

MOMO fighter when I want some addition eye protection.

HJC modular when I wish for full protection or when it is around freezing.

I have a POS ZOX full face helmet right now. Still looking for a helmet though. I am thinking of going with a Scorpion.

I have a Schubert C3 - it's nice and is very comfortable on any speed.
Only high price on it, but I have just one head and can't replace!

Schuberth C2 - Well worth the newly dropped pricing of $599! I like Arai helmets too. Shoei is too "round" to fit my head.
