Normal driving (even on a freeway) makes your head/helmet giggle a bit, imagine a track, imagine a track at full speed. Nock, nock, nock constantly for 20 minutes, I might even forget my name at the end of the first session.

Ok, mine was not that far out. It was only 1/2" from the side, but getting padding in was a little challenge. Maybe have just that halo bar re-bent to move it over.
