How to choose a Motorcycle helmet

This is How to choose a motorcycle helmet but i thought I would just give you a few pointers. There are a few little things that I learned a long time while looking for a motorcycle helmet, that maybe of interest to you. Out of all the fatalities that involves motorcycles come from a chin collision which may drive you to get a full faced helmet.

You must note that The motorcycle helmet is no good if it doesn't stay on your head when you get in an accident.

1 You should check to see if the helmet you are trying on will fit firm on your head using a simple test.

2 Fasten the strap snugly you should feel some force on your chin. Then grab the rear of the helmet and try to lift it up and roll it forward off your head. Even when it hurts, you should not be able to get the helmet off.

This is more likely to be an issue with the open face helmets, but we have seen some helmet that fail this test. On most helmets, the strap will fasten by passing through two D rings. I think this is the most effective, convenient and comfortable fastening system.

You have to wear your helmet for a bit to get used to it and allow the motorcycle helmet to break in.

The most important thing is to ride with caution and it will not matter if you choose the right helmet.

One other piece of device you should consider is the motorcycle helmet intercom, there are some that is coustom made in the helmet others you can buy and wear with your hemet.
