I have a Nolan N90 modular helmet in solid white. No self respecting "leather-clad petrol head" would wear a white helmet. The added benefit is that white offers a little more visibility and goes with any color scooter you may decide on in the future. On a side note I bought a modular helmet so I could slip it over my glasses if I didn't need that convenience I wouldn't get one they are a bit noisier.

A friend Bruce Wolfert had a car pull out in front of him, he hit the car and did a serious slide, he lost his nose and part of his chin, he will be okay with many surgeries ahead, he made a request to all his riding friends to stop wearing open face helmets.
I bought a full face helmet within a few weeks and now only ride with a full face helmet.
I also bought gauntlet type gloves to protect my wrists, I wear a mesh armor type jacket and Kevlar riding jeans.
I probably ride a little faster than most guys and I take risks more than other guys, but I do wear my gear.

A study in Europe showed that motorcyclists wearing a white helmet were 35% less likely to have an accident involving a car.
