I have a full face, a full face modular, a 3/4 helmet and a half helmet. I use the full face helmets for cold and rain. The half helmet gets the most use and the 3/4 every now and again.

Why is 0 not an option? I have 0.
Same with the vast majority of Harley owners in my neck of the woods where it's "let those who ride decide".

You can't have '0'; if you try to add an option of '0', it doesn't work. However, an option of 'None' is possible.

I'm with you there. I moved here to California from New Hampshire. There was no helmet law in either state at the time, then F'n Pete Wilson overrode my rights to decide.

My first helmet that I had to use, I put "WHO'S RIGHTS NEXT?" on the back in large letters. I constantly had CHP ride by on their bikes giving me the thumbs up. One day an old guy in his cage raced down the exit ramp and pulled alongside me, rolled down his window, and just as I was wondering if I had cut him off or something, he shook his finger at me and said, "you're absolutely right young man, you're absolutely right!" I'll never forget that, I'm probably the age he was then, and still agree with my younger self.

I'm from WI, born and raised, and this was attempted back in the 80s if I remember correctly.(A lot of that era is a blur now!)
A ride in and sit in was organized at the state capital by the CC Riders MC. Thousands of us rode down E. Wash to the capital. Literally took over. Layin' out on the capital lawn, partying for days. We weren't leaving til the helmet law did. It was an awesome political move and it worked. No helmet law has ever even got close to passing since.
It was truly an awesome thing to be a part of. Gotta love Madtown!

Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your thread.

3/4 open face w/smoked visor for warm weather

FF w/worthless "air channels" and breather / defogger holes drilled through the shield for cold weather....the 6x 1/4" defogger holes work perfectly btw
