Popular Post Smoother Posted December 14, 2017 Popular Post Share Posted December 14, 2017 (edited) Helmet info and opinion is scattered all over the forum, mostly in thread derailments, which I categorically deny having anything to do with, ok, maybe a little,. ALRIGHT! IT'S ALWAYS ME. HAPPY NOW? Please feel free to add your thoughts and recommendations about all things helmet related. So here's what I bought: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01L6SS4FW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and why: 1. its road legal, and therefore safer than a bicycle helmet. 2. it's matt black like my wheel, so it goes with anything. 3. I can wear goggles and keep my eyes from tearing up. 4. I don't care about the extra weight, It's not like I'm peddling for Gauds sake. 5. I can wear it while jet skiing, powered paragliding, and if I ever get on a motorcycle/scooter again. 6. the padding comes out for cleaning, etc 7. there's room for speakers 8. it was cheap 9. it comes well recommended Concerns: 1. I do a lot of sidewalk and boardwalk (promenade) riding, so I'm concerned that my full MC helmet and jacket combo will scream "HEY! he doesn't belong here". Which, of course, I don't. But riding in the road is illegal here too, so I'd rather be hung for a sheep than a lamb (as the old English saying goes) said to mean that because the punishment for a bad action and an even worse one will be the same, you have no reason not to do the worse one 2. How bad is my hair going to look, when I take it off? 3. How much more time is this going to add to my pre/post-ATGATT routine? 4. Just one more bulky thing to find a place for here, and where I'm going. 5. Makes my recent headphone purchase useless, as I use them exclusively when gliding. I tore apart my old headphones (won't charge anymore) with a view to installing them in this helmet. Another project that may never see the light of day. Yeah, I know, somethings wrong with my nose, or the helmet, or the goggles, or my head. Either way, nothing is lining up.
