    Default Gear or no gear, that is the question..

    The guy was doing this..
    Gear or no gear that is the question -531264


    When this happened..
    Gear or no gear that is the question -531265


    While wearing this..
    Gear or no gear that is the question -531266


    With this result..
    Gear or no gear that is the question -531267


    The thing is, what is going to be our fate as most of us don't even wear helmets? Plus, in the summer season, wearing anything protective is out of question.

    Lets see how many here wear helmet while riding. Yes I do wear one..

    My first helmet Brand was Penguin & its inner poshish,Wiser frame, & skull got weared/damaged bcoz of full time use during 5 years of field job then in 2001 i bought Safetbet Chinese that serve me for 3 years & got stolen that was the time when helmet supply was short in market & i hardly manage to get Chines MHR & still using it.
    BTW i m in search of good branded Helmet & have check the local market but cudnt find some good.

    hmmm..well helmet must be worn..

    And in Pakistan it is so important....IN basant season motorcyclists usually cut up their faces..

    @AbbasJin

    Chinese helmets are not up to the mark...they r made of poor quality material....and so they can fail in hard crashes

    @Abbasjin.

    I mentioned that Chinese helmet because thats what most of the people are wearing thinking it to be good protection.

    I also have a Penguin helmet. I have found it pretty good. Here is a pic of my winter gear VIEW

    Don't mind the kid not wearing helmet, I gave him one but his head was too small for it.
