I’ve taken ALOT of flak from chopper people about my Pro Full Face Helmet stance. Here’s another reason I feel that way. Here’s my buddy Justin at @iconmotosports with their helmet showing percentages of where your head hits the pavement. Want to keep your face? Wear a full face helmet. Coz it’s not if you crash it’s when. Unless you just stand on the sidewalk… #goodpeople #respect @icon1000 #ifyoudontlikeitidontcare
Had someone tell me once that an open face helmet is safer than a full face helmet because the chin protection on a full face helmet often got caught on something and it snapped your head back and therefore snapping ones neck.
That might be true but the logic is stupid. If you were wearing an open face helmet then it would be your jaw that would be ripped off your face if it hadn’t already been ground off.
If open face helmets were safer then motorcycle racers would wear them.
I get a lot of shit for this too. I don’t push my beliefs on anyone but don’t tell me I look stupid wearing a full face in the summer or in a state without a helmet law. You wear what you want and I’ll do the same
I’m not sure why in so many cases protecting your brain is considered dumb. Not telling anyone what to do, just surprised it’s so frowned upon.
