    Guaranteed it’s the stuff you got stuck to your lid. All lids get carefully tested for aerodynamics these days. A camera AND intercom will properly mess that up.
    I suspect you’ve only just noticed it because you now have a properly FAST motorbike. Lol.

    I look forward to helmet manufacturers integrating a fore and rear facing camera which transmits to your dash (instead of a rear view mirror) and to your phone to record journeys and track days (and accidents) from a relevant POV.

    Please people: don't mount GoPros or other cameras on your lid. If you come off the camera mount can punch through the helmet into your head.

    That was what happened with Michael Shumacher when he had his accident skiing.

    +1, I never liked wearing my GT Air while riding my RR as I had trouble with vision due to the way it sat on my head.

    It was but his helmet was nowhere near as strong as a motorcycle lid. If you have it on with a 3m mount it will come off with impact and you’d have to be fairly unlucky to land flush on it to even start to cause an issue.

    I know it was a different type of helmet but all lids are designed to take impact from flat surface like the road not all of the impact force concentrated on one point.

    I hate to see bikers (and cyclists) with cameras mounted on helmets.
