motocross helmet and goggles

Why? Especially when there's no dirt section.

They figure there is not enough wind drag with a motard so they have the bright idea to make a helmet for even more wind drag

I'll tell you what...I held off on the pimp MX helmet and have been pleased I did. Unless its 65+, and it hasnt been much lately, you will freeze your nose off wearing goggles.

Im gonna rock my street helmet for now and try my cheap MX helmet and goggles once it warms up a bit.

Goggle lenses are pretty weak and thin in general and dont offer much protection from a flying pebble.

sissies, I'll evaluate this further once it warms up and I actually find time to ride.

Arai XD3 seems like a good choice for dudes that don't like goggles.

hahaahha you're fat!

hey! I just thought of something. If you're going pretty fast and you stick your head up wrong and the wind gets a hold of the visor on a mx helmet... that will snap your neck in half and you can die.

Your neck will be sore as hell if you do a trackday at a roadrace corse with a dirtbike helmet.
