This was actually heard, recently (found it on another site) ..can't believe people still think this way... by way, was said by a couple of cruiser riders (half shell, bandana, chaps, the whole 9)...so take that for what it's worth.

Here is some of what was said

"...I NEVER use the front brake; you can get thrown off using too much front brake!"

and later...."and if I ever get into trouble, well, I just lay'er down and ride it out."
:bonk:


You guys got any more??

Found this one as well...which is up for debate depending on your experience etc..

Helmets impair hearing....

Incorrect. Helmets don't impair hearing. A motorcyclist out on the road will hear just as well or even better with a helmet on as without one on, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. Why? Because for someone without a helmet on, the wind and sound of the engine are very loud, and any other important sounds must be even louder to be heard over all that noise. With a helmet on, surrounding sounds are quieter, but in equal proportions. This means that what can be heard over wind and engine noise without a helmet on can be heard as well with a helmet on because the wind and engine noise will be reduced. (NHTSA)


Personally, I'll take my chances and keep my ears and the rest of my face intact, at the risk of somebody's hearsay about impaired hearing while wearing a helmet. I've never noticed any advantage w/ out a lid, except when I want to get an ear-ache from the wind and a headache from the noise. :bonk:
