True in most cases . Especially if you plan to ride like a twat .Some will say a Full face is a must. Personaly I'm not sure. Most of the time I wear a 3 quarter style. My Full face gets used for touring as you never know when its going to chuck it down and full face is more comfortable in that case. Definately a full face protects the facial area better but the other night I was discussing this with my retired doctor, father in law who reckons the extra weight of a full face can sometimes transfer injuries from the face to the spine! I'd rather be walking and ugly than pretty and paralized. Thats a personal take. Neither the FF adherants nor me are absolutley right. Its personal preferance. But a 3 quarter or a FF are better than period costume. Though Period costume is what I'll be wearing this year on the Banbury run this year.
Depends on what period you are going for, I suppose. 3/4 is correct for the 60's, judging from the pic Tie posted:But a 3 quarter or a FF are better than period costume.
Ouch, that brings back memories of the time I bounced off 3 SUVs. Folks call me "Pinball Wizard" in these parts... :wacko:True in most cases . Especially if you plan to ride like a twat .
