I've worn a 1/2 lid for years but now I'm getting tired of my face freezing in the winter. I just bought a Fulmer open face, with shield, for winter riding. Who knows, I may go back to the 1/2 for year round riding if the new helmet is a hassle. Time will tell.

I rented a sportster for a day of riding hwy 1 out in your neck of the woods a few years back. I have road envy.

Or worse, it could be a mini-van.

I spent six years in Michigan and I would never wear anything but a full face helmet there. But, when conditions are optimal, I think a cruiser would be much better off in a half helmet. When you're sweating your [email protected]%$ off at slower speeds in a full face helmet, it's kind of hard to enjoy anything! Just a thought!

I lilved in San Diego for three years. I don't recall ever seeing a locust out there. Hit one of those with your face at 50 MPH and it might change your mind... Sorry if I sounded cranky in my last post.

Oh man! For years I thought one had to lust after/mess around with people of the same sex to be gay, now I find out all it takes is wearing a full face helmet?

Alright, which one of you jerks gave me the geigh?
