Well stated Mike5511. I support the idea of wearing a helmet. I also support it's up to the individual to make that decision.
It's been a while since I looked at this tread and I just saw this reply.uncle salty, I gotta call BS.
The Louisiana lid law only requires a lid. It was determined that if the State set lid requirements it (the State) could be held responsible for injuries.
I lived there for several years and only wore a plastic shell, joke of a lid.
if i can pull off the arkansas trip it looks like i'm gonna need a helmet, as i see a bunch of states have helmet laws... all i have is a few full face arctic cat sled helmets.. i'm not used to wearing a bucket on the bike, sooo,, my question is,, what have you guys found to be a comfortable helmet?
good link b, thanks man,, how's it handle the wind? get any buffering or visor tip? i've never owned a 1/2 before but for storage room wise it makes more sense.
Pretty cool story! I'd like to meet Freddie, he seems genuine and I always wanted to go to his racing school.Fast Freddie grew up around here. I worked on his and his father's cars, Bronco and jet boat back in the early 80's when I was employed at a local performance shop.
+1 on that deal on the Bell. I keep an old Skid Lid around for when I need or want a helmet.When i am going where a helmet is required I have a Bell Drifter half I throw on under a net. If you watch the net you can find them for under 50 bucks new.
But if there is no law I wear no lid.
I ordered a full coverage helmet from Wish for $143 in red and black instead of black which was $62. It supposed to be a $899 helmet. I see what I get and might post a picture of it unless it is piece of crap.ATGATT.....I wear my Arai full face whenever I’m on my bike.
