  • Helmet?

    Alright I looked for a thread and I couldn't find one. What Helmets does everybody use???
    I got tired of my head always being pulled going over 50mph with my half helmet. So I purchased a convertible helmet. Whatcha think

    I try not to think what possibly others might think, I do what works for me regardless of what you or anyone else thinks of that, try it sometime, it's like leaving your wife or mother in law at home when you go out for yourself.

      I like it personally. My helmet is far from top shelf but I just got a Sedici modular helmet and got my own bluetooth communications system and installed it. I have not ridden with it yet, but the guy at the cycle gear i went to rides with one and says its a good helmet to ride with.

        Too each their own... not.my style. I like to feel the lightness and freedom of a half helmet... I feel more connected to the ride experience.

          1/2 and 3/4 will always pull head up at highway speeds..... Try and find o E with a good big chin strap so it doesn't hit you neck and try to strangle you.

            Half here w/visor. I like to be able to hear and recognize the noise around me when I ride. But I do have a fairing and curved windscreen that takes care of being strangled at high speeds......Works for me

              Guy I bought the bike from gave me a half helmet as I didn't have anything with me when I picked the bike up. I like it as it's not too heavy and still feel some breeze on my face. The windscreen deflects most of the wind so it doesn't try to lift unless I'm in a strong cross wind.

                I don't necessarily grab my helmet every time I get on my bike, but if I do, I wear a Crazy Al's German style half helmet. It fits close and I don't feel like a mushroom head. It has a quick release strap which is nice, too.

                  I prefer a 3/4 helmet. The smaller and lighter the better. Whatever fits you and feels comfortable is the one you should wear. However, lose the Bluetooth, remove the cell phone holder from your handlebars, eliminate all distractions and concentrate on your driving, the road, and the other distracted drivers around you that are listening to their Bluetooth while on their cellphones and, hopefully, your new helmet won't get all scratched and dented up.

                    If you're running with a windshield that is correctly working for your height, the wind shouldn't be a problem for any helmet you're wearing.

                      For many years I didn't wear a helmet but the wife finally guilted me into it. I bought a full face helmet but I found that I couldn't breath well enough in it. I have been pretty happy with my 3/4 helmet with visor though.

                          I just bought an HJC I90 modular helmet. Love being to open it up and it's warm and quieter when it's colder. My warm weather is a Bell half helmet. Bit of mushroom head, but might protect me a little better than those novelty helmets.

                            I have a novelty German style that pulls up pretty badly so got another 1/2 helmet that gives me that mushroom look but is comfortable. I have a full face but just have never been comfortable in them for what ever reason. My off road helmet is full face but has no shield so I imagine that is the problem.

                                Guess I'll be the lone wolf here. I wear no helmet. That's what I recommend.

                                  You're right FB, and when I wear a helmet, it's a 1965 police 1/2 shell Bel helmet.

                                Yeah that's why I got the covert. I liked the fact that I would have all 3 helmets in 1. I tried on the Bell Broozer and it fit well but the Scorpion is a way lighter helmet.

ID:	121667 Helmet finally came in. It's a great Helmet, it's a little tight around my ears but I have a big head and ears. The tinted lense is great and super clear. The clear lense I haven't tried yet. I think I'll just care my clear riding glasses incase it gets dark on me. I tried on the Bell Broozer and the Covert is definitely noticeably lighter. Only time will tell on how it rides with the wind.

                                    i literally have a army duffel bag full of helmets that we ceremoniously look thru before daytona each year, and promptly put back in the closet. I dont wear one, but i dont live in a city. my brother wears one when he comes down because it makes him feel complete while riding, as he is accustomed to wearing it in his home state of upstate NY, where deer animals are more abundant than dear people drivers.

                                      Personally, I wear a helmet all the time, preferably an Arai full face helmet. I have my last Shoei R1200, all scarred up from when a woman ran a red light in front of me ten years ago.IMy first helmet was a 3/4 with a bubble face shield...hit a big bug while riding, and turned my head to wipe it off...the shield detached from the helmet, leaving me wide open to the wind (I didn't wear glasses , then. I don't like the government telling me that I HAVE to wear a helmet, but I think you're foolish not to (go ahead, hate me for it!)

                                        I agree that I don't want to be told I have to wear one. I WAS told but not by the government! After years of no helmet I do feel safer in this distracted driving world by wearing one.

                                        I agree, like most things it should be a choice. My choice is to wear one even though it's not required by law. Since I have no hair it protects my head from cold and sun. Should I go down, hopefully it will protect what little is between my ears.

                                        Sorry, no hate from here. All about the personal choice. Don't feel foolish either
