Let's try and keep posts focussed on helmets and not stray into comments about helmet law, hating wearing one etc. Thanks???

What helmet do you currently own?
Do you own more than one? Let's see them all

I currently have this beautiful open face helmet made by MT Helmets. Very comfy, very little wind noise and always draws compliments from people.

I am kind of proud of this one. I asked my daughter to make a Union Jack design on a 3/4 helmet that I picked up. I told her to make it however she wanted. I wear it very rarely

The first two helmets on this thread are fantastic! My old, silver-grey Shoei RF is not in this league. But it does match my hair color! Will post a picture next time I wander into the garage...

I ride with HJC. They fit and work well. Reasonable price plus if it rolls off and hits the deck while getting gas no big deal.

You take it off when you're getting petrol? Is that a rule in the States?

No not a rule. Under normal conditions i usually remove my helmet and glove while getting gas. Creature of habit i guess. Now days keep helmet on with face shield down. Remove gloves spray down gas nozzle with disinfect. Pump gas and put glove back on. Walk in pay for gas and then spray down change and gloves with disinfect. 61 years old and really want to be around next month for 62.:cautious::cautious::cautious::cautious::cautious::cautious:

If I'm just getting petrol I never normally take my helmet off, as I'll only be a few mins. There is one petrol station I know of that you need to remove your helmet and pay first, but that's because they've had a number of attempted robberies or kids on scooters ride off without paying.

I forgot this guys don't have contactless payment over there yet.

Always interesting to hear how things are done differently in another country??

Great Picture. New meaning to the phrase "bird brain".

Your avatar picture reminds me of my 1966 Honda 305 scrambler. Classic.
