Hi all ! My stepson and I went riding yesterday on some local trails . It was hot so I wore my Hornet helmet with the visor . Sometimes when its not real sandy I crack the visor to get airflow . We had stopped to take a break and when we took off I still had the visor wide open . A small branch jumped out and poked me in the cheek about 2 " below my eye , I was still in first gear and just about to flip down the visor . Poked me hard enough to make me bleed . I always wear the proper gear but I guess I have to smart enough to use it properly . Hope this helps someone . Cheers !
