As a new motorcycle enthusiast, I was just wondering what kinds of motorcycle helmets there are. What are the differences between them? How would I know which is the one for me?
I’m also looking for a good shop to buy motorcycle equipment? Some place that will be my go-to shop whenever I need any motorcycle gear.

What you need really depends on how you use your bike. That’s why there are different kinds of helmets.
There is a full-faced helmet. This is generally considered to be the safest kind of helmet. They protect your whole head. There are other kinds of helmets that leave parts of your head exposed, such as your chin, your face, etc. These helmets are pretty heavy though. They can also get hot, especially in the summer. They reduce your hearing ability.
Another type of helmet is a modular helmet. It’s like a best of both worlds kind of helmet. The full-face helmet has been mentioned. There is an open-face helmet. Much of your face is exposed though. Your nose and chin will be exposed.
The modular helmet has a chin bar. This can be flipped up. So this helmet can act as a full-face or open-face. This gives it that versatility. This is the kind I use. That doesn’t mean it’s right for you. I suggest you ask the bike shop just to be clear. It depends on how you use your bike.
Well this does sound pretty cool. I like the fact that it’s two kinds made into one.
Yeah, I liked it for that too. And it is what I really needed. There is a half helmet, but I’m not sure I would want to recommend that. However, if it is right for your situation, that’s all that matters.
This is not the safest helmet. Thus, they are lighter and cheaper. My advice is, don’t choose something like this because of the price. When it comes to protecting yourself, don’t be cheap about it. It can make a huge difference. Just trust me on that.

Make sure your helmet fits nice and snug. Don’t go purchasing anything online! It should be tight and comfortable. At the same time, it should not hurt or pinch you. There should not be much movement. Turn your head side to side to test for movement. Take your time. Don’t rush the helmet-testing process.
When you are at the store, get the help and advice of an expert there. It’s always nice to have good advice from someone experienced.
