    I'm getting ready to buy a 3/4 helmet in the near future, do I have to do all that stuff. ? Just tug it on and if you can still see, go pay for it. LOL Did I pass ?

    Good info Chopper thanks

    My wife has three different half helmets that were all purchase at HD dealers. Two are XS and each fit a little differently, and she also has one small that fits the same as the XS. When she tried a small in some styles they were much too loose fitting.

    Good thing she was there to test fit each one rather than assuming that her typical size was always the same.

    I just bought a full-face helmet today. One for the protection it provides and two for the warmth it gives me riding in the FREEZING weather! Stay safe -- and thanks for the .pdf on how to fit.
