page 2, still no pic?

i tried on a fulmer helmet that i thought looked nice and it gave me a bobble head appearance. i think mostly because i wasnt wearing my jacket. i had driven on that day.

op, do you just wear the corona wife beater, or agatt?

edit:i'm sorry if this question has been asked already. i just scrolled ahead for pics to lol at.

Wrap an egg with some toilet paper and drop it. Now wrap an egg with some egg crate foam and drop it. Now imagine that was your head hitting the ground as you crash. Or wear a Harley bandana. I hear they are DOT/SNELL rated.

5'7" with a big head, too. The one over my shoulder, that is. Enough to need an XL helmet.

Who cares what I look like when I ride?! Don't think I've ever felt the need to stand in front of a tall mirror - fulled geared up, casual dressed, or otherwise. That's for ladies.

If it bothers you that much, get a black color lid, or some dark color so the lid doesn't shout out too loud. Or... do what the Predator guys does and make them focus on something else (just saw him myself over the weekend, very cool).

I have the same issue, but it... its protection, not a fashion show.


Though the next helmet i get will probably be one that comes in different shell sizes, RF1100 felt great on and wasnt gigantic

Being about your site, i used to feel the same way. Always thought i'll look like a Jack in the Box. Lol! But, you know what? Once on the bike, nobody gives about the size of ur helmet. Just find the most comfortable and reliable at ur budget. Whatever helmet you ware, others will respect you for the way yu ride, and not the look of your top end.
