    How helmets look on you!

    Okay peoples!

    Today I was trying out some helmets because of the enourmous sale they had there. All the helmets that actually fit me looked sort of stupid. My head looked like a tower with a fat top. Is this how helmets are supposed to look?

    If you people will, take a picture of yourself with your helmet on. Meanwhile, I'm going to check the hucking thread for helmets.

    Note that this applies to non full face helmets.

    If you go up in price they tend to be slimmer and better looking on your noggin, I had an old Bell that looked rediculous, but I got a new Bell for about $100 and its really really thin and light, to the point people compliment it. But yeah, they do look kinda funny!

    I don't like the really tall part, but full faces are too expensive. I'll have to look around. Meanwhile, peoples, please post!

    It seems a little big, but it's not too bad.

    My head is quite oval like. Heh I can see why my head would stick out when I wear a helmet.

    Yeha my helmet looks like it is just resting ontop of my head, so I bought a skateeboard type helmet, I am more used to it and it fits better, PLUS way more sticker space!

    in my experience, cheaper helmets look really stupid. I've tried some more expensive ones and they sit quiet nicely.

    I can see it now!

    Maelstrom's riding in local park, just for fun, nothing serious and he's wearing a full face. Heh heh heh. That would be sort of extremz0rz.

    Alright I'll cut it out.

    Well it really depends on who you're trying to impress I suppose. If you're going for the brain damaged, cross-eyed, drooling fool trying to get a nurse's attention because he's peed himself AGAIN, I guess the no helmet look will suffice. Otherwise, who really gives two ****es what you look like in a helmet. Just ride, have fun and play safe. Just my .02

    Word. I ride for myself, and helmet+glasses+gloves are mandatory safety equipment no matter where I'm going.

    Dude, I don't know why, but your face looks so cool like that. I like the little beard. Um, yes, the helmet does look odd like that.

    rofl, before i got my bell nemesis 2 pro with molded technology, i had a 15 year old huffy women's helmet. And i still wore it. Just to be gay.

    That's right...
