John I'm with JP on this one, get a decent helmet. I agree they look cool but they don't offer the protection you need.
My brother wears those and I cringe everytime he is on that bike, although I think if you ride harleys you need to where those helmets to look cool or something, I don't know but all the bikers he hangs with wear those little things.
My other brother was in a very bad accident on his bike and thankfully he had on a bigger helmet, they said if he had on anything less he would have died.

In New Hampshire I don't even think its the law that you wear a helmet, it never use to be but it could have changed. You know, the Live free or die state or the don't wear your helmet if you don't want to and die state.

I can't wait to see you suited up and ridin that thing, just like Dennis Hopper and Jack Nicholson.... :-D

This is what is cool. If you are unfortunate enough to go down on a bike and hit your head but were wearing a full or 3/4 helmet, you just may get up and tell about it. That is cool.

Dead or in a coma is uncool.

Ted, what a great pic of you and your Gals, beauty.  Yes, head gear is really important.  I wear a good DOT approved helmut, protects my noggin in case of that fall.  Have a great and most awesome day, life, health.  Cindi`

Ok...No "turtle shell" then...I found one on thtis site I posted that looks pretty good...It looks like a fighter pilot helmet! All I'll need is a gas mask!
 In Tx its the law to have a license over 50 cc engines....Ok,....This is what actually happened here...Janelle got a good deal on a 50 cc scooter....I told her its way to small for driving back and forth to work...Noel said it would probablt burn up really quick...At any rate, I decided to try it! Boy, was it scary!! :shock:...But, there was something about it that I liked. We had some money from the IRS still....I did research on these scooters as by this time I had to have one too! These two are Yamaha Zumas', 125 cc's. Just a little bit beefier than most to be able to handle unpaved roads( Not Off road). Since I was a kid I always wanted a motorcycle, but at an earlier time I figured I better not get a bike the way I used to drink, so I opted for Several boats over the  years. Now, I pretty much dont drink anymore and things just kinda happened :)
 My old boss used to ride all the time....He was an older guy, about 65 or so, and he was reallt a pweeson most people didnt like. Anyways, he took another job up in Colorado springs with my company......Doug was always one to say he'd never wear a helmet..He always said he was old enuff to decide....After about a month up there he got ran off the road, bounced over a curb, and hit a tree head on! (with his head! no helmet!)
 He is now just like Superman....Cant move...has a thing that makes him breath too....Its really sad..Like  I said before, most people didnt like him , But, out of pity I suppose, Janelle and I used to always invite him to sit with us in the bar we all used to go to on Fridays. I used to be accused of sucking up and making plans with management back then....I was Union Shop steward and we werent supposed to mix with management...But,.....NOBODY tells ME who I can and cant hang out with, and on a few instances I had to make that clear to people.
 Oh yeh, Cindi...In Tx people dont have to wear helmets...as long as they can show they have medical coverage insurance that covers motorcycle wrecks :). Just over the river tho, Oklahoma requires helmets to be worn all the time.
 I appreciate all the expressions of care here that you guys have shown me and Janelle! Thank you very much! I'll post more pics soon!

your friend,

ok yaw got me, as you see in my picture I wear a half helmet, but its not a turtle shell, it has plenty insulation inside, you can see how it fits me, I like it, I can hear all around me plus the radio  ;)

Never be afraid to try something new.
