Ok, help me out here. I've been riding and racing over 25 years now and see this growing trend of guys on sportbikes with beanie helmets. What is with that? ......Bought the bike now can't afford gear.........or are we talking a converted Harley rider who is sick of fixing the slow old school machinery and has moved on to new technology?
Last week a biker was killed in Surrey and the beanie clearly had a label marked "For ornamental us only". Maybe it should have said "For Mental use only". Maybe the bike shops should be held liable for selling 'non-approved' gear?
On the otherhand maybe getting rocks and bugs in the face is a fun thing.
Sorry and thank you for letting me vent...........
