    .. but you look like a crackhead talking to yourself on the headset when someone calls :o

    It's completely covered with the helmet on, and the earpads insulate them from windnoise, so it works well, except for not being able to reach the controls, but the earpads will come off with warmer weather.

    Nice helmet.
    Post pics when you crash and fuck up the sides of your face.
    Not a fullface helmet. Out.

    I was going to respond to the thread, but I found your post full of so much valuable and insightful information that I had to quote it.

    Please post again.......:bowdown:

    No problem.
    PS, I love your white bike.
    I'd paint mine white, except at least 40 people I know would punch me. Then anyone who owns the same bike as me would punch me.
    So I'm gonna leave it stock colors.

    I use mine with my iPod so I can listen to music. Since it doesn't plug the ears completely it's nice. Full-face, by the way. But still a nice combo. Don't mind the rants. Some people just don't have style, yo.

    Just have no style? You mean just like keeping their face intact? A half helmet in my opinion is more useless than wearing no helmet, because it gives a false sense of security, and if you get your face ground up, you're gonna wish you died when you hit the ground.
    I'll pay the extra money to have my face enclosed and protected from the elements.

    Bold for your reading pleasure.

    Just because you tell someone they need to wear a full-face helmet doesn't mean they are going to wear one. *shrug*

    you wear kevlar armor too? Cause if you're just wearing leather that also gives a false sense of security.


    Sorry, just had to point out that no matter what YOU wear, someone else can point out that it's still not "enough". :big grin:

    wat

    if there was something that provided better protection in the event of a crash than leather, MotoGP guys wouldn't just be wearing leather.

    You are an idiot. Kevlar is not going to provide the protection of leather in a crash. In fact, it can burn into your skin in a bad crash.:ugh:
    Think about it, like totensiebush said, if leather weren't enough the superbike guys wouldn't be wearing it and surviving in it.
    So yes, leather is enough.
    Half a helmet isn't. :greddy:

    That's fine for one crash.
    I think leathers are a better investment. You can crash multiple times and harder in leather generally, unless we're talking chaps.
    With a mesh jacket, you're going to be needing a new jacket after the crash. And after a couple of sliding crashes, you'll have spent enough for a full suit.
    Figori, like it or hate it, half helmets won't do shit unless you're riding a bicycle, and even then it's not that effective.

    My gear for reference.

    I understand what you are saying. But saying it over and over again isn't going to change anyone's mind... That's all I'm saying.

    You do realize that blunt impact is the leading cause of serious injuries in motorcycle accidents right? so before opening your mouth and putting your foot in it, research a bit.
    for road racers on tracks, leather is great. Flat open areas where sliding is the major result.(also racers give up more protection for more movement. There's a tradeoff between performance and protection)

    For actual traffic riding though, that's where the blunt impact is king. So again, Devil's Advocate makes the point....

    Do you wear hard body armor when riding? Because it's going to be more protective against blunt trauma than a simple leather jacket.


    Hell, do you wear hard plastic motocross armor when street riding?
    That is going to be better than just a leather suit on the street.

    Course if you just want to stick to headwear, do you wear a Leatt brace while street riding???
    If not, then you yourself aren't as protected from head/neck injury as you could be.


    So before you go playing judge about what someone decides to wear, remember that you aren't so high and mighty yourself.

    Hard body armor isn't going to do shit.
    What kills you is the trauma to your body. The best thing that can possibly be done is wear something that absorbs the energy from the impact.
    That's why cars have crumple zones, to absorb the energy of the impact.

    and kevlar armor disperses impact energy. :big grin:
    there you go.

    Now go get a leatt brace and some kevlar armor to wear over your leather.
