Can you wear a motorcycle helmet in a shop?
It’s only a requirement in government buildings, everywhere else it’s up to the shop. They have every right to ask you to take it off. My local shop I often use on the way home from work is fine with it, they know who I am, same with my local petrol station.
How much should you spend on a motorcycle helmet?
Usually, motorcycle riders will spend between $80 to $450 on a motorcycle helmet. A good average of what beginner riders spend on a helmet is about $200 to $300, while more experienced riders will often go for more expensive motorcycle helmets in the $400 to $750 range.
Is it safe to buy a used motorcycle helmet?
That’s why you should always throw away a helmet when it has fallen or if you have fallen with the helmet. The outer shell does not necessarily break, but the inner shell could be damaged. This is something you cannot see, so buying a used helmet is always a bad idea.
Are Shoei helmets worth the money?
Shoei helmets are top-notch products, no doubt. But the best helmet is the one that fits YOU best. The priciest, most expensive helmet with the most features and nicest graphic in the world will be a HAZARD if it doesn’t fit your head right. If you have a Shoei head, get a Shoei.
Is it worth buying an expensive motorcycle helmet?
Up to a certain point, yes. As development is expensive, by buying something more costly, you will potentially be getting a more thought-out helmet, with better comfort, aerodynamics, and maybe somewhat safer.
Can you wear helmets in stores?
That’s perfectly legal… unless those rules impinge on the rights of specific groups of people that are known by the term “Constitutionally Protected classes.” Religion is a Constitutionally Protected class. So the store can bar the wearing of helmets, but not burkas.
Are motorcycle helmet covers legal?
Under California law, wearing a helmet safely means that the helmet completely covers someone’s head and the chin straps are securely fastened. The helmet’s fit must be snug and limit excessive movement of the head within the helmet. California’s climate and scenery make motorcycling a popular recreation in our state.
Is it against the law to wear a helmet in a petrol station?
Requiring motorcyclists to remove their helmets at filling stations is not a health and safety issue. Requiring motorcyclists and passengers to dismount and place the motorcycle on its stand during refuelling is a sensible measure which is stated in the Energy Institute’s guidance on petrol station refuelling.
Why is Arai so expensive?
Arai uses a single-piece inner shell, but it’s made up of multiple densities for structural integrity… but of course, this is more expensive to make. The cost to produce any helmet is of course going to be passed on to the customer, and some of the top brands – like Arai and Shoei for instance – are hand made in Japan.
Are Arai helmets worth the money?
Arai makes a quality lid and once upon a time was arguably the best out there. Now they have serious competition. If you have the money and buy an Arai, you will end up with a fine helmet. However if you live on a budget, dropping $500 plus on a new Arai and skimping elsewhere is not something I would recommend.

Are Walmart motorcycle helmets safe?
Walmart helmets are no worse, and no better, than LBS helmets. But the fact of the matter is that they are all equally useless. Buying a helmet from Walmart will be fine but like others said, are heavier and might have less vents. I wear Walmart helmets and have been in a crash with one while landing on my head.
What should I look for when buying a motorcycle helmet?
You don’t want the helmet rotating around either.
- Tight snug fit almost to the point of being uncomfortable.
- A loose-fitting helmet can increase noise level.
- The street environment is far more dangerous than racing, invest in a good helmet!
- Look for any tight spots that cause discomfort.
- Fit your head, not your face.
Are second hand helmets safe?
If a helmet has been involved in an accident or has been dropped there may be invisible cracking of the shell. For this reason we recommend you do not sell second – hand crash helmets, visors and other safety helmets unless you can personally verify their history.
