Helmets, helmets, helmets!

The 2011 helmets are on display in all their glory at the annual Powersports Dealer Expo, and Motorcycle-USA has coverage (Get it? coverage?) of new & notable lids for this year.

Included are new modular helmets from Bell and Vega for the graying Sport-Touring gentleman to wear with his hi-vis Aerostich, Arai’s new Vector-2 line for the leather-clad racer wannabes, Icon helmets with outlandish graphics for the squids, Fulmer carbon-fiber useless half helmets for the pirates (assuming they even wear helmets), and AGV MX helmets for the dirty, off-road rabble.

Any segment of the motorcycling community I didn’t offend with that last paragraph?

No?

Good.

  1. ‘graying Sport-Touring gentleman to wear with his hi-vis Aerostich’.  For a second I thought you were talking about me until I got to the Aerostitch.  I wear Motoport.
