    Cool [Discussion] Full face helmet on phantom?



    hi i just got my 2b license. wondering if you all think its weird to wear a full face helmet with leather protective jacket on a phantom? because, i happen to have a brand new shoei helmet and dainese jacket from my bro. do you guys think its overkill? like, too racy? i'm 1.85 so can only ride phantom.

    I think it looks cool.
    Seen more and more ppl wearing FF helmets nowadays.
    blacked out phantom + black jacket + black FF = fierce!!

    The day i quit riding,
    Is when those whom I love,
    Cry every time I get on my motorcycle.

    Go think about it.

    Regardless of what bike you ride and whatever speed too... in an accident, chances are you will smack your face on the road.. unless you ride facing backwards.

    Wearing of a full face and jacket is a safety statement., its not a fashion statement.

    Overkill is an understatement. Permanent damage to the facial features is a reality without a full face helmet... then you REALLY have to worry about your looks.

    I have seen enough split chins, lost front teeth, broken jaws and facial disfigurings in my life time all happening to riders who insist on using an open face helmet quoting reasons like too hot and worried about whether other road users will laugh at them.

    Some say that the full face is too expensive.. I guess its because their face is too cheap.

    Sorry if I sound mean, but I have seen enough and cannot understand why some riders do not know how to use their head. Spend a few thousands on their bikes but become stingy with their own head. Does not make sense to me.

    Flame me if you guys want to.. but only bloody fools ride with an open face helmet.

    All it takes is for you to crash one time with an open face helmet, just once... and you will agree with what I say, .. by then... its too late and you cannot turn back time.

    I'm riding a phantom and wondering if it looks weird to wear a Full Face helmet.
    Raptor has convinced me. I'll get one tomorrow. Thanks bro.

    Actually, I got a split chin when I was a boy running and crashing. Had it sewed up
    and the line still shows. I can't forget the scene when I was in the operating theatre surrounded by doctor and nurses till today.

    Now that's THE statement we hope all riders live by.

    actually i find full face and jackets a safety statement and a fashion statement - so stylo milo, 2 riders same bike, 1 with armor, 1 without, sure look at the one with ma.

    anyw, ts, u got the armor and ff for free, just use la! wahahaz somemore is good one lei, dainese and shoei. fwa, i want also dun haf.

    Actually, I have to admit, I did intend to get a FF helmet too, but was wondering if FF on a phantom was a "overkill" as TS put it. Cause well, its a phantom!?

    But considering all the points brought up, I think I'm headed to find a FF on my payday.

    THank you all.

    All I can say is "Why not?". It's not what bike you ride, it's how you treasure your face, head and body. Those who tease are simply idiots or too poor to afford and thus jealous that you have them.

    You might wanna consider those removable knee guards. It's better for our climate and can be wore over the jeans. Not all pants will fit everybody legs' length even if the waist fits.
    Anyone can ride a bike. Being a biker, is a state of mind.

    Shorts and bikes?

    Combination for a very painful disaster.. and some people I know crash in their carpark... not yet reach the road even. So no need to talk about how near or how far is the distance.

    Anyway its your skin and flesh... so go think about it.

    Riding a bike has got enough risks... why up the ante???

    A full face helmet provide superior advantages...it looks good , protects your brain matter and it improves FC.

    Those who dont wear 1 are plain dumb.

    pls do wear a full face helmet, no matter how lousy it might be, it's still better than a normal open face helmet.

    in my 2B days, i was riding a RXZ and wearing my full face, golves and jacket. i rem someone i know actually laughed at me, i didn't give a dam. the next time i saw him, he didn't smile much, this was because he got into an accident wearing a open face helmet and all his teeth got knocked off.

    200 can get u pretty decent ones, head over to regina take a slow lookaround, look out for Rjays, and OGK, once u targeted ur helmet, ask them to take the correct helmet size and TRY FIRST!!! this is the most impt thing....once satisfied then u ask for the price, if u think its too expensive u can bargain for lesser price, but i suggest u take a meal aft finding out the price, aft filling up the stomach, charge in and bang bang bang bang bang until the price drop....hahahaa

    wax and polish ur whole body and all ur gear also can improve FC by 1-2km/l

    also by making sure u pee and take a **** before u ride can reduce FC! =)

    So gents, why not a full leather suit to go with your daily use of FF helmets?

    Wearing of a full face and jacket is a safety statement., its not a fashion statement.

    Overkill is an understatement. Permanent damage to the facial features is a reality without a full face helmet... then you REALLY have to worry about your looks.

    I have seen enough split chins, lost front teeth, broken jaws and facial disfigurings in my life time all happening to riders who insist on using an open face helmet quoting reasons like too hot and worried about whether other road users will laugh at them.

    Some say that the full face is too expensive.. I guess its because their face is too cheap.

    Sorry if I sound mean, but I have seen enough and cannot understand why some riders do not know how to use their head. Spend a few thousands on their bikes but become stingy with their own head. Does not make sense to me.

    Flame me if you guys want to.. but only bloody fools ride with an open face helmet.

    All it takes is for you to crash one time with an open face helmet, just once... and you will agree with what I say, .. by then... its too late and you cannot turn back time.

    I bought a MDS Full Face helmet yesterday. Average price is $180.
    Mine has rainbow visor (tainted, heard it's not PSB approved, who cares) real cool.
    After compare with my previous open face helmet, really find it's worth
    the buy and it's so much nicer design. One more thing, I discovered I don't
    smell lorry/bus fumes at all now since it's enclosed and aerodynamic.
    Sure looks good with a Phantom.

    The other day, while I was trying to get out of my parking lot, one CB400 fellow
    with a Full Face Helmet on, can't wait for me to get out and keep trying to squeeze
    into my lot and our mirrors like crashing into each other. I was feeling really irritated
    and then when the FF helmet was lifted up, her long hair flowed down and it's a
    beautiful girl. I instantly cool down. See, how a lady with a FF helmet has such magic!

    I never pursue her as she has another lady pillion (no guts).
    But I think must be 90% real. Maybe, one of this day you may
    chance upon her, than you let us know lor...hehe..
    A lady on a CB400 and with a FF helmet really looks special to me.

    Really, sometimes it's hard to tell the difference if it's a real woman.
    Go to Orchard Tower one of this evening and you will know what I mean.
    Just sit in the pub have a drink, someone will approach you.

    Sorry off topic....

    I got hit by a taxi at over 90km/h when I was cycling on Lornie Road last time, before I started learning motorcycling. I guess that incident really reinforced proper attire as i had a full length abrasion of my forearm, from wrist to elbow and it really really really hurt for a few weeks. I still have the ugly scar over there.

    Also, many cyclists do not wear helmet (or motorcyclists who do not wear proper FF helmets) citing various reasons like weather and stuff! For me, my helmet saved my life as I slammed head-first into the ground after somersaulting over my handlebars.
