Okay, so maybe it's a motorcycle helmet. But what better way to earn respect on the road?
Needs Orko stickers.

Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

Every day is Halloween for Harley owners. I bet there's a good psychology dissertation in there somewhere.

If I didn't wear glasses, I would already have one. The expense of prescription lens inserts make this helmet prohibitive!

Must. Not. Buy.

Someone tell me they already have one and it sucks. Please.

That would be nice except it takes away your peripheral vision.

Motorcyle or bicycle, I'd laugh derisively if I saw someone wearing that.

I would actually totally buy one for my scooter if not for this. I like full face helmets, but those take away too much field of vision if you don't buy the right one. Still, it's not nearly as obnoxious as those helmets with the day-glo mohawks on top.

Yeah, you'd be laughing- right up until your ride burst into flames, straight from the firey pits of Hell itself
