Motorcycle riders are an odd lot. One the one hand, you have your Harley Davidson “cruiser” type rider. He or she is likely to be wearing steel toe leather boots, leather chaps, leather jacket, and gloves. And on top of his head is just as likely to be a $30 novelty helmet that won’t provide protection for much more than a falling acorn.

On the other hand, you have your sport bike rider, who is just as likely to be wearing flip flops, short pants, a tank top shirt, and $300 full face helmet designed to protect a motorcycle racer laying his bike down at 150 mph.

For both sides, these helmets are about image, not protection.
