Choosing a motorcycle is like choosing your soul mate. It takes time and tons of research to find your one true love, but once you set eyes on it you just know that is the bike you are meant to spend the rest of your life with. Just like when you are with that girl of your dreams, when riding down the open road you want to make sure you look your best even if down deep inside you know the bike is the one people will be staring at. As high up the priority list as looking good is though, being safe on your bike is second to none. At speeds of 65-75 mph you need as much protection as you can get between you and the asphalt. This is why picking out a good helmet is just as important as choosing between beach bars and ape hangers.
