    Just wanted to know why guys are wearing these scary looking face masks while riding. I can understand when it is cold but on an 80 degree day?

    Protection mainly. Dragonflys at 70 kinda hurt a little bit. Not to mention rocks flung from the tires of big rigs.

    My thought would be
    ! they are on a honda
    2 the thinner ozone allowing More and Stronger Rays thru it
    3 Really BAD looking DUDES trying to camouflage and blend it
    4 MORBID is in Now?

    I think #2 would be first choice.to a close #3

    When its a hundred degrees or better it helps to keep from getting your lip dryed out and then they crack and bleed. Keeps rocks and bugs from hitting your face. Don't knock it untill you try it. Get hit some day and you'll see why.
    Come ride with me in the desert area without one.

    Mine is plain black. I do it to keep the bugs off the face and keep from getting sun burnt. Not trying to be tough.
