Just asking here...... (I wear a full coverage helmet and always have regardless of some state laws allowing otherwise - but to each their own)

My question....why wear a novelty helmet? If you have to wear one anyway, doesn't make sense to wear one that MIGHT (at least has a chance) of saving your brains from being splattered if you fall down and go boom and take a head impact?
less wind resistance, and less mushroom look. i honestly have been looking for a skidlid with some protection. just not willing to wear a helmet that catches sooo much wind that it makes me not comfortable. the full face is nice, but not in the Vegas summer.

Not tech. savvy enough to do pics. But I have a black Gmax 54S. I've never been a real helmet person, but I really like this one. Modular design, very low drag, lot's of vents, removable padding for cleaning, in addition to the clear shield, it has a retractable polarized dark visor(like a military flight helmet ), and last but not least, a 1in. x 4in. light in the rear. This light has several modes. Off, always on, slow blink, fast blink, brake mode. I have a wireless transmitter hooked in with my brake switch. Whenever I touch my brakes it lights up. How cool is that for a helmet? I may get a 3/4 helmet this summer, or I may go naked. Just have to wait and see. Y'all have a good day.

I use mostly full-face...been nailed by quite a few bugs that convinced me of the folly of my ways. I do use a half-shell around town though.

For the most part, I choose not to wear a helmut (don't tell my mom) but when I do, I have a Scorpion half/helmut/half exposed bean...as far as helmuts go, it is very comfortable, but I think I'd like to get a full faced helmut for cold riding, I think I'd go with another Scorpian, mine's just flat black with a quick flip down/up face sheild.

Reviving this old thread for fun.

Some think, and I tend to agree a full face helmet is not part of riding a Harley. True?
I wear full face for everything except my Mini Trail 70.

Here is what I got for riding my Sporty. Full protection but a little tougher looking. Its a 80's helmet still being made and with improvements.
I used to hate them.

Simpson 'Bandit".
Go get one for $399 or spend it on beer!
