OK guys, this is why forums like this one are so great! Different perspectives from all over the world! I'm in a state where it's not uncommon to see people riding crotch rockets wearing nothing more than flip-flops, shorts, no shirt and a full face helmet! So when I see someone cruising the blvd, going 15 MPH, in a custom cruiser wearing a cut off t-shirt, jeans and a full face helmet, it drives me insane! If your going for the look, at least wear the half helmet and shades. California for yah! That's all I'm saying.

Not to sound like too much of an ***, but how much time do you spend worrying about what other people are wearing?

I took a fall and took out a chunk of the outer shell to the right of the chin area. Had I not had a full face helmet on that chunk would have been my chin. That made me a believer in full face helmets, I am glad I had one on at the time and will continue to wear one. I don't think my helmet restricts my range of view. The shield extends past my peripheral vision.

I've worn a full face helmet when the weather has been cold and wet on long trips. It makes a big difference to the comfort of the ride. Even in the dry you don't get the bufferting on your face.
Now I wear an open face with a clip on screen for bad weather.

Free Market... Buy what ever helmet you like.

With me it's more about finding one that fits right.

I get it, you live in sunny California. The sun shines in Georgia too. I suggest worrying less about how you look and more about how you ride.

Default brain bucket-face mask

I like the half helmet aptly named brain bucket. It was cold tonight cruising in to town, one of those days where I needed the open road to fix the work hassle, ya know to settle the soul with a night cruise. temp dropped pulled over switched goggles threw on the face mask and comfort no biggie. I dont like the full helmet, but to each their own. If it works and your riding what else matters?

What woman wants to kiss a guy with no lower lip or jaw to hang it on? I'll keep the brain bucket 'til I'm too old to kiss.
