You got yourself a great helmet. They get some great reviews in Europe too. I am a 3/4 helmet guy, so the M1 Pro is my next right after Christmas when pricing will drop like flies. After so many Shoei, I have to give them a chance. I heard that the SC1 had some sound quality issue and the SC2 will resolve that. I guess it changed now. That is why Revzilla emailed me that it is on a long B/O from few months ago.
