Default I finally bought a dot appoved helmet... I feel like I am in space balls.

I feel like I am in space balls. I got a deal on a $265 helmet for $80. BRAND NEW never worn, dropped, looked at funny. But it fits like a space balls helmet.





Is my safety really worth that.

THAT is a $265 helmet? I think even at $80 you overpaid for a beanie! Must be that little sticker on the side.

Yeah, at that price it had better be lined with enough coke to make Charlie Sheen OD.

Hey don't sweat it Kudofo. You may not like your look but to everyone else you look normal. We are always our worst critics.

I wear a $35 novelty helmet, $80 DOT 1/2 helmet, leather, or a $600 Shoei FF depending on the situation. Wear what you want and just enjoy the ride! *XLF* everybody else You look fine.

+1 on that post. I have 4 helmets of which I only where two. Full face for agressive driving and a novelty for short runs to the store or to test change to the bike.

Man its been a long long time since I was on this website. As for my sportster shes long gone. Went to a good home. I never made it into the marines or the navy. Some medical bills on my credit denied me for top secret security clearance then the jobs I was offered sucked. Went on to become a Lab Tech for a biochem lab. I bought a road king though so I still ride.... with a full face helmet. I read those old posts and cringe at how I used to speak and act. Yikes what a throwback.
