I'mstarting a new thread to try to get an opinion or five about my new lid. Should I try to break it in or...? :

AGV GP1

...the damn thing barely fits, and doesn't completely cover my chin. The shell itself is OK, not as snug as I thought it would be so not sure what will happen once it breaks in. Entry is difficult because of the shape of the opening (those wacky Europeans!) but I just need to get used to that. The other concern I have is that my long-ass nose is just touching the chinbar already, so what would happen upon impact?

I suppose if my chin hits the pavement first I'd have a broken jaw, but then again in that case my head would get pushed back at such a bad angle I'd break my neck too - how many times does a surviving rider hit the ground chin first (from the bottom of the chin)?

Should I forget about this helmet or try to break it in and see how it feels then? XXL is their biggest size, can't get the next size up then...

Thanks!

Sounds like you need to exchange it. The last thing you want when riding is an ill-fitted helmet. Just the fact that it doesn't cover all your chin would make me exchange it. Do you get a headache from it if you wear it too long?

Thanks, Rascus... I just got it today so haven't ridden with it yet. I'll call the guy but it looks like I got it on closeout (it's new) on eBay. All I wanted was a spare lid, I already have my V-Flyer for everyday use. I'm just wondering if I should ride it home, but yeah that chin thing concerns me.

BTW, your sig about gear vs sweat always pops into mind when I think it's too hot to wear my perf'ed jacket, and I stop being a bitch and just put it on and ride :dblthumb
