I'm not starting this post to do any bashing, I'm just curious about the type of helmet worn by 99.9% of all Harley riders. Around here in south florida, helmets aren't mandatory, but almost all the sportbike riders wear 'em anyway (full face). But everytime I see a harley in traffic, if its rider is wearing a helmet....it's an open face helmet, or worse, a "brain bucket". I know that a few of the guys on this list ride Hogs and/or other cruisers in addition to owning their ZX12R. Now I'm assuming that everyone here who wears a helmet on their 12R, uses a full face helmet. But what about when you're on your Hog? Do you then shirk safety and wear a brain bucket to look cooler, or do you embrace safety and wear a full face, thereby setting yourself up for public ridicule from other hog riders you may encounter while riding?
