    Good Morning folks,

    So having finished my TW project this winter I am now in the market for some new riding gear for my wife, who will likely be riding the little beastie quite a bit over the next couple of years. And she is having a hard time choosing the style and design of her gear. I am hoping that you all can help us out by posting pictures of your helmets along with your dubs. And if you feel up to it, a brief explanation of your thought process when choosing what you did. Did you lean toward safety more than looks? or did you match the design with the style of bike? you get the idea. Anyway Ill start, with my trademark milky, out of focus pictures. Here is the little cow with MY helmet in tow, I wear an afx-39 dual sport helmet, I choose this one because it was cheap at 110 dollars after shipping, and it is a high quality full face helmet. Plus the design matches my other bike, as well as this one now I suppose.

    Persistence is the better part of genius.

    don't have any on the bike but these are mine...



    arai signet gtr & fly trekker (which is identical to your afx fx39 aside from padding and the closure system, you probably have a ratchet system while i have the regular d-ring system)...had the arai from my sportbike...i use the arai and fly for my motard and i use the fly and bell (see photo at bottom) for the TW...the arai is by far the most comfortable, light and quiet helmet i own and offers the best protection (my previous arai was crash tested on my sportbike so i know it protects well)...ventilation is ok...the fly is good for what it is...great price, has a face shield, the ability to wear goggles under the shield or have the shield up with goggles, very ventilated (not great for the winter), huge profile so it catches a lot of wind at higher speeds which can make your neck sore









    bell custom 500...for bopping around town

    That bell custom is sweet, Im thinking maybe I should lean toward that 3/4 style for this bike, what with it being mostly street and all.

    i wear that bell a lot cause it's comfortable and can't beat the ventilation of an open face with a pair of glasses or eye goggles...but it def lacks heavily in the protection department



    bell has some cool designs for them now too...

    yea i bet. its a tough sell too because of the cold, but i suspect that in our case the dub will be a warm weather vehicle only. Plus the tw doesnt get all crazy and do endurocross anyway, unless the owner is rainman of course.

    I have the same afx-39 dual sport helmet as you but the red/white colors. I like it and like point37 said you can get a sore neck if on the pavement at high speeds alot. I really just like trail riding and not on the pavement much so good helmet for that.

    After this 3/4 helmet saved me, I switched to a full face one.
