I'm in the market for a new helmet and wanted to see what you guys are wearing
Not sure what brand it is, but its very lightweight, not hot at all, DOT, and only cost $30 at Walmart!
Today I put on what has been one of the best helmet I have ever used. The Aria XD4.I'm in the market for a new helmet and wanted to see what you guys are wearing
Faulty Logic, dog. Your scenario only addresses one type of accident. High side, low side, hit from behind, other vehicle involved, all change your impact area. I checked all my souvenir helmets. No two alike. I’ve gotten off far more often with open face helmets than full face, yet never landed on my face ( though it might be an improvement) .:laugh: This is not meant as any criticism to full face helmets, to each his own. When I’m living in Florida, though, I don’t wear a full face lid. The average motorcycle rider where I ride wears shorts or jeans and tennies or flip flops, tank top, no helmet. I’d estimate no more than 10% wear helmets. I am the only person I’ve ever seen wearing actual motorcycle boots, Kevlar jeans, and gloves with a helmet in Florida. A weird tropical version of atgatt.Just think about this for a moment: when you fall on your bike you are traveling forward and facing forward and when your feet, legs or hips hit the ground the fulcrum effect causes your head to accelerate and pivot into the ground! Face first...
In my mind if I choose an open face helmet I might as well wear nothing at all.

Oh boy, that is entirely too many examples :surprise:No, my logic is sound, I'm protected in the event of a face first indecent.
Well.....that depends on what day of the week it is.I'm in the market for a new helmet and wanted to see what you guys are wearing
