Free world, indeed. Which is why I voiced my opinion, just as you voiced yours.

It's a current but retro-style offering from TT and Co in Japan. Hand made, Japanese specifications legal, IIRC (don't know how that translates for American spec legality).

TT and Co specializes in retro 1970's and 1980's styles made with a small profile specifically to avoid the mushroom head syndrome of nearly every other full face helmet in the world. Pricey stuff, being hand crafted and needing shipping all the way from Nippon, but for those of us into the vintage moto aesthetic it's well worth the price.

I offered up an opinion, before getting good information. My apologies, Nicholas.

No worries, man; no offense was taken.

Sounds like your worst problem is that you may be human. I empathize--I, too, suffer from that affliction.

Fuck helmets. You like 'em, you wear 'em. Leave others to their own choice.
