Thanks for all the replies

I think DS is definitely the way to go

i found these at a really reasonable price:

My price range is around  R1500

So i just bought me an XT600 and am planning to do my first long distance ride to Namibia

I rode the bike back from bredasdorp to cape town with my motox helmet and it felt like my neck was going to break

what are some good helmets for long distance rides?
preferably price friendly

maybe with a visor included?
