I own a dotted full face for 1 ATGAT police officer on my 150mi a day route when I was going to school, I'll admit; it's nice on cold days.

But on the regular, I rock a beat up old brain bucket that would probably do more harm than good. But I have a unique geographical/political benefit (the cops here care more about ....... crimes that may effect others and busting people that look like hippies or stoners; sucked as a kid in a car but older, with an illeagal scratched up lid and a semiconcealed weapon at all times: It works in my advantage.

I like the wind on my face and having peripheral vision more than an insurance policy incase I mess up. If I wanted that I'd drive a cage! (My personal taste, nothing against anyone who feels differently)

I always wear a full faced helmet. In PA you need to wear some kind of eye protection while riding a bike without a helmet.
