Even though im mainly a half shell rider ive been contemplating rockin a full face come winter this year. Althought the lid im looking at isnt your normal kinda helmet its more of a dirtbike style street helmet. its made by ICON who we all know makes quality helmets. its called the Variant, comes in a few different colors, I personally like the flat black or the grey and black
(these are internet pics of the helmet I found on google)

HA I seen that fighter pilot one on youtube. looks cool. im pretty set on that Variant if I go full face tho. I havent had a full since like 2005. anything will be warmer then the half shell german I always wear. I wear that thing in the dead of winter with a beanie on under it with a snowboarding facemask. It worked for many years but im turning 30 in a few weeks and dont deal with the cold as well as I used to hahaha.

The decals on the helmets are hilarious. I guess if the soccer mom has kids in the car she will back off to keep the kids from reading the sticker. LOL!

I guess stickers with "free mustache ride" and "I 69 U 2?" would work as well.

I personally have no issues with tailgaiters. I leave ample room in front of me and they either get the hint and leave ample room, or they pass. Either way I don't have tailgaiters.

I dont know where you live but I bet its not in New York. The tailgaiting in NY is insane. I see it everyday. people out here must think the car in front of them has no breaks cuz they get so up on the car in front of them any tap of the break and theres an accident. and its not to pass them they want the car in front of them to either speed up or move over. They will ride them like that for miles. same goes for bikes they will ride your *** so close I can see the pimples on there face if I look back and they expect you to either speed up or move. obviously the "sticker" wont actually make them back off, its more of a joke between me and the friends I ride with. as for the tailgaiters lets just say if they ride my *** or anyone im riding with *** for too long they usually end up "not happy" in the end.

Same in philly and the more congested areas of NJ. When I'm on my bike I filter traffic every chance I get and if it's really bad I'll sit between 2 cars. Not about to get rearended and pinned between 2 cars because some douche needed to get to his t time.

I don't know if I would ride if my riding conditions were like that. Even here, I go into work for 6:00 AM to avoid traffic.

I own a lid just like this. I bought it used off eBay. It is one of my favorite lids to wear. The guy who sold it to me never washed it, so the padding was very soft and undamaged when I received it. Of course it smells. That's a given when buying used, especially a hybrid lid. The guy who sold it to me was in it for about 10,000 miles in mostly hot weather in mixed riding conditions. What I like most about it is that it was well worn when I first got in it. So it went on with ease. The straps buckled right into place. I can stay in this lid all day. It only takes about fifteen minutes after I put it on and the smell goes away. I recommend buying one of these used because it will feel much more comfortable after someone else was in it for a while before you get in it

So ... soo ... sooooo many things wrong here. I'm just going to chalk it up to a troll.

Usually a spark plug or ball bearing through their windshield will get them off your ***.
