No helmet. I use it mainly on the sidewalk and at night so I really don't see any need for a helmet. I may wear my Mtn. bike helmet if I go off road or jump it.

Thanks Tigercub.

Default Some known side effects of prosthetic brains ...

You develop an unnatural desire to adopt the political outlook of a Canadian (a French Canadian)

You develop an unnatural desire to own sissy dogs

You develop an unnatural desire to ride vintage small-bore ricers.

You start believing you are an executive

You start believing you are a pilot

You start believing you have a three digit IQ

You start believing insults received are actually compliments

You start believing your idiotic opinion matters

You start believing that the guy on the Harley is not really f*cking your wife.

The notion that "motorists are far more hazardous to their health than whether they strap a helmet on" seems to be pretty faulty logic. The cars aren't going away any time soon, nor are they likely to be operated any more safely. That's exactly why it's incumbent on the rider to prepare for his next encounter with a hazardous or inattentive driver. Part of that preparation is proper gear including helmet, along with solid bike-handling and traffic awareness skillls and the willingness to exercise good judgment.

Default Re: to helmet or not?

Jeff Dean, one of the early members of BMWMOA has this at his website: http://jeff.dean.home.att.net/swisher.htm



For non BMW folks, Dave Swisher is a very, very high miles long time BMW guy.



Check out the link.



Confidential to 'dx'. Keep on keepin on with that "wind in the face" routine. Very manly. Don't check out Swisher's post crash lid shot link above. After all, all you really need is the "right 'tude", dude.



As for me, I'll stick with my new fav, Arai XD which fits my "shoei" head better than any lid I've ever owned.
