Helmet pressing at 100+

Ive been riding for a little while now and it seems that when i go over 100 or so my helmet presses against my face and rises slightly. Im not exactly sure if its the whole helmet or the visor or seal or whatever, but does this happen to anyone else? It doesnt really efffect my riding at all except that i think to myself, "why the hell am i going this fast" so i guess its a good thing. My helmet is a new shoei rf-900 and it fits pretty well, the next size down is def too small.

I've got a couple of helmits that I wear regularly, a JVC and some other cheapo. I drive fast a lot and haven't noticed any real problems mostly just that the lid press twords my face. But it's not big deal for me, I just get my head closer to the gas tank.
