Yeah, I know this has probably been done before but I am asking anyway I am picking up my new bike tomorrow and need a helmet to go with it. Not having ridden a bike over speeds any greater than about 5km/hr round a car park as of yet, it is difficult for me to gauge what I need in a helmet, other than obviously, it needs to fit. I am getting a cruiser - I do not intend to be going at ridiculous speeds - so I would think maybe for a while at least aerodynamics/wind noise etc would not be an issue! I am leaning towards just getting a very cheap, open face helmet with full visor. I feel pretty claustrophobic in those full face things. I have tried one on in the shop - I can't remember the brand - it was three letters beginning with R - something like RJT? But anyway - it was only $90 and I am sure I will get it cheaper than that due to buying a new bike there also. Am I mad, or does it make sense to maybe just get this cheap one for now, for while I am learning, and then if I don't like it, I can always get a better one down the track - no point in spending $500 and then finding it is not for me. Are the open face things bad news full stop?
