Thanks for all of the replies. I am leaning toward the HJC. I have a FF HJC CLSP now and like it alot. It is just ready to be replaced. Keep the ideas coming. I am going to stop by Dennis Kirk tomorrow to try some helmets on.
What Brand/Model was the helmet? I am a little concerned with the HJC latch. Seems like it could open in an accident.Yosemite said:I had a flip up helmet and loved it. After my accident though I will never own one again. My face had it the bumper of the truck (I'm assuming) but it shattered the whole front of the helmet off and the only protection that was left was the sides and top. On the flip up style usually the sides only go to the middle or a bit farther on the cheeks. If I had not stopped with the truck and slid down the road there was nothing protecting my face anymore. After seeing my helmet and the little hit it took I just cant wear one again.
I think that is a pretty safe assessment. But a modular will help with the convinience of being able to take a drink or talk to your partner at a stop light or when getting gas. No matter what it has to have more crash protection than my 1/2 and more face protection while riding than my 3/4 with just sunglasses.Stryker said:I read somewhere that all modular helmets are to be considered as a a 3/4 protection helmet and not as a full face.
