3/4 or Full Face Helmets?

I know open face and 3/4's are all the rage with the crusier/bobber/custom scene. Personally I'm not a fan of having my chin meeting the cheese grater but hey thats me...




So what do you use, full face, open or 3/4....

I prefer full face, rather have full protection

Full face definitely has the best protection. I find it doesn't match so well with the Gunner. They look better on Japanese crotch rockets, but would you rather be cool looking, or safe?

Yeah it really depends on what you want in the end, if safety is what you're really concerned about then maybe going full face is the best thing to do. Also depends how you ride. If more relaxed then maybe you can get away with some chin exposed.

well thats not necessarily true! There are a ton of retro styled helmets coming out that fit the look of the gunner quite well.

I'm leaning towards either the Bitwell Gringo or the Bell Bullit...

yea the gringos are cool because there are a couple different shield options that attach at the buttons. Theres a straight visor or a bubble shield. There's also this cool option for a flip up mechanism as well. Or you could just wear jet style goggles (kinda leaning towards that

Jet Style goggles look awesome with a retro bike. Wouldn't mind having them on a BMW R-Nine T

I'm really into the Bullitt but I dunno if it meshes proper with the Gunner...
