Default What type of helmet do you use?

I'm new to riding and would like to hear what type of helmet people are using: half, 3/4 or full face.

Shoei RF-900 (Picotte replica) on my sportbike, non-DOT biker trash skid lid on Harley for one day trips out of state where helmets are required. I also have an HJC CL-5 open face 3/4 helmet for cooler weather on the Harley.

The Big German - just like me - non DOT helmet.......Phat-Boy has seen me model it. On the legal side, which I had to be before PA went to 'no lid allowed' I had a half helmet. I do own a full face for the cold days.

I also, wear a beer helmet when there's a good game on....ya know...a can on each side to keep me hydrated.

I use to have a three quarter helmet but now have a half helmet with zip out lower section for cold days. I have a 2 snap helmet but cannot find a shield that will fit. Next time I will go with same helmet but with 3 snaps. Shields on cold days are nice.

I have both the 1/2 and 3/4 helmets, I will use the 1/2 during warmer weather and will switch to 3/4 during the winter season,
sure keeps my noggin' warmer in the mornings, but in the end it will be a matter of preference for you and once you've had time to try both or none at all you will probably favor one over the others.
Welcome to the riding club, we'll see you on the road!

Ride safe.
