I'd take a 10 year old Amazon full face helmet over a brand new 1/2 or 3/4 helmet any day everyday for safety

And this folks, is why we don't discuss helmet laws.

We are all adults here and capable of making risk management decisions, many factors to consider.

Safety of a new 1/2 or 3/4 helmet vs stale dated full face helmet.

Financially situation.

Reduce consumption 🌎


Brake cables are very important to safety,
recommended replacement intervals,
"every 3 years or so, regardless of appearance"
per Haynes Vespa service manual,

Why no grain of salt with helmets? 🤔

I am my own first responder. I refuse to submit to others deciding what is right for me. I respect others opinions and expect others to respect my opinions. One persons opinion should not be a fact others must treat as gospel. As others here would and have said "you do you", I agree. I will continue to do "me".

I agree, everyone should make their own decision. Many here
are simply bringing forth industry recommendations. I appreciate
everyone's input. Hey, I am the dude that went 15 years with the
same helmet.

As always, "Let the rider decide".

This has become too contentious, so locking.
