Helmets

OK, how many of you have gone to open face helmets since getting a bobber?
I have been looking but I am not sure my round face is suited to the style, I have tried a few on and some make me look like a real ball.
I do not sport a beard either so can use that as an excuse.

How is ride noise dealt with when using an open face helmet, ear plugs of course but are they noisier or not?

And finally recommendation for riding shades or goggles?

I use a mix of open face and FF helmets. I find that i NEED earplugs when riding the Bobber, otherwise my tinnitus would reach critical levels within no time !
Out of all the riding gear i own, my favorite go-to helmet, glasses and earplugs for the Bobber are:

To itchy is right. I'd constantly be scratching you'd that there were bugs in it.....

Itchy stage lasts a week at most (unless you have the hair of a 14 yearold :P)

0-60 in .......oh! wait.... I really don't care anymore (but it's still 1200cc of raw throbbing Trumpet so bugger off Mr.Scooter!)
