Lets see your helmet...

I recently purchased a 77 r75/7 and am thinking about getting a full face helmet. I want to get something that will be safe, but also have a nice vintage look to it.

I currently ride a cb650 cafe and wear a Arther Fulmer AF40 with a bubble shield and I love it.

I am leaning towards waiting until the Biltwell Gringo comes out and going with that. Any other suggestions?

I dig Roof Boxer helmets for the vintage look


I really like the orange



They are modular so you can run them 1/2 or full

Re: Roof Boxer V8

Looks like something out of 'Halo'. Very cool. Does it come with a matching jetpack?

I tried a full face and went back to an open face which is much quieter. I know it's not as safe but I like it and take the responsibility on myself. I should probably try a flip front next time.

Unlike the Boxer picture above I would never allow my wife on the pillion to wear an open face. Not to mention riding without gloves.

The Bullitt helmet reminds me of a Griffin clubman I had for 14 years. I like that.

It's like they made the helmet just for me and my bumbleebee :)



Scorpion EXO 300 "Burst" design black/yellow. NLA I think.
