Cool Motorcycle Helmets

If you ride motorcycles, know those who ride them, or even just have the slightest clue as to what a motorcycle is then you probably know that wearing a helmet is very important. While different locations have varying versions of helmet laws, the fact still remains that wearing a helmet is crucial when riding a motorcycle.

In a previous article of mine I went over the ways to stay safe while riding a motorcycle and I pointed out that wearing a helmet is one of the most important aspects if not THE most important. However, many people simply do not like wearing one. Some say they are too restrictive, too hot, and a lot think they just don't look cool.

That last sentence is crazy to me because I think motorcycle helmets are the coolest part about riding a motorcycle (well maybe not THE coolest but they definitely rank up there). If you fall into that category of not liking helmets for vanity reasons then perhaps you just haven't found the right one. By taking some time to sift through the wide variety of helmets I am sure there is something out there for everyone.

Get the Right Fit

No matter what your reason for not liking helmets, an important thing to remember is to get the correct fitting helmet. More often than not people wear helmets that are too big, too small, or too clunky and they get put off from wearing them for good. By getting fit for the right helmet you are already taking the right step into enjoying riding while wearing one.

Get the Right Style

We will touch on actual looks/decoration in a minute but for now we are worried about the actual style of the helmet. By style I mean the physical structure and design. When it comes to motorcycle helmets you have lots of options: open face, half, sport, etc. Finding the right style of helmet will allow you to get a feel for what you like while still protecting your head!

Customize the Look

Okay so you found a nice fitting helmet in the style that you are comfortable with but you still think the helmet is boring. Well if there is one thing that many bike riders have it is personality. This personality can be shown through your helmet. Say you are a chopper rider who is looking to show his/her rocker side, get a black helmet with your favorite hard rock band logo on it. Perhaps you are a sporty rider who enjoys Asian style motorcycles, get a sleek sport helmet with Japanese symbols streaking across the sides. The possibilities are endless you just have to make it yours!

In the end a helmet should always be utilized to ensure protection while riding so hey, if you "have" to wear one you might as well enjoy it and look good while wearing it right?


Street Talk

I agree with you on helmets and safety. i leave the decision up to the adult rider. I'm not here to judge. You give some excellent advice. You obviously have riding experience. I enjoy all your articles Shannan. I'll get around to reading them all eventually.

Shannon, I like the concept! Good job on the article too. My uncle didn't wear his bicycle helmet once. Going for the newspaper nearby. Thump. Car. Memorial Day. One broken rib. Not a major accident - but his brain was so injured that he died. Doesn't take much to mush the brain. I got a terrible concussion in high school. Practicing for the state championships in trampoline of all things. That's a sport gone -- a little too late for me -- from too many injuries!! blessings, Cynthia

Some of the helmets one sees today are fashion statements in safety. I am sure, that a photo, of people with and without helmets, after an accident, would convince those who find it not cool to wear one, converted to wear one.

As grim as that may be you are definitely right. I don't know how a person could NOT wear one after knowing the consequences.
