6 Uses for Custom Made Motorcycle Helmets (You Kinda Knew About)

6 Uses for Unconventional/Custom Made Motorcycle Helmets

Wear a Helmet if You Wanna Go Cruisin without Bruisin!

Hobbies, recreational activities and jobs often require one to wear a helmet. Wearing a helmet for these jobs, recreational activities and hobbies protects the person from serious injuries, and that goes for bikers too. But, even with its obvious benefits, the sad fact is that many people still choose to participate in these activities without paying attention to the benefits of wearing a helmet. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure those people might have their reasons. Many image conscious people think of wearing a helmet as unattractive or uncool, but it doesn’t have to be that way, especially with a custom made motorcycle helmet.  The bottom line is, if you have a good head on your shoulders, you would definitely want to keep it that way. This is where custom motorcycle helmets come in.

Apart from the conventional motorcycle helmet, custom motorcycle helmet or unconventional motorcycle helmets are also considered as important head gear, because they provide comfort and protection attributes along with having the cool-factor that all bikers look for.

For those of you who think that only the traditional motorcycle helmets have utilitarian uses, such as, protecting your melon against unavoidable head-pavement collisions and keeping the sun, breeze and bugs out of your face while riding. You’re wrong! and I’m going to prove that. The following are some of the uses of the unconventional motorcycle helmets that you should read out loud.

Wear a Helmet Man!

Without any further ado, the following are some of the tried and trusted reasons why you should be wearing a custom motorcycle helmet, whether you’re riding across the country or cruising around town  – unconventional motorcycle helmets are perfectly capable of protecting you.

Minimizing Bruising while Cruising:

A wise man once said, “If you’re cruising, then you shouldn’t be bruising, because if you are, you’re not doing something right.” What this basically means is, while riding a hog, going helmet-less is a definite no-no. So, if you are the type of guy who simply can’t pay attention to the things that matter on the road, to avoid bruises, abrasions and broken bones, (because they really hurt!) be smart and pick up that custom motorcycle helmet.

Staying on the Right Side of the Law:

It goes without saying that when carrying out certain activities, safety comes first, and motorcycling is no exception. Besides, wearing a motorcycle helmet, be it a cool custom made motorcycle helmet or one from the unconventional motorcycle helmet variety, is mandatory according to state law. So use your head, stay in the gray area of the law and wear a helmet if you want to stay clear from unwanted financial penalties.

Wearing unconventional motorcycle helmets not only gives you the advantage of choosing your helmet’s color and design. It also has another important use, which is sidelined sometimes, it protects you from cancer. Yes, using a helmet even a custom motorcycle helmet saves you from the dangerous UV rays of the sun, (which can kill you in the long run).

Wearing an exotic motorcycle helmet means that you no longer have to worry about being exposed to harmful ultra violet rays, and let’s you have a little fun while you’re at it.  So, don’t let the sun spoil the fun guys. Oh yes! They’re also good for keeping out other stuff like, hail, strong winds and snowflakes.

Keeping the Bugs Out:

Believe it or not an unconventional motorcycle helmet does more than just add personality to the rider. A good example is when one decides to hit the open road. Having a custom motorcycle helmet not only keeps your head from coming open, it also keeps those pesky flies that are in abundance in the countryside out of your teeth. For the open face helmets, having a badass facemask to keep the bugs out of your teeth is another option.

Expressing Yourself:

It doesn’t matter whether you are a beauty on a bike, having a bubbly, all-girl personality or you’re one of the dudes, sorry, I mean desperadoes on wheels, custom motorcycle helmets, are made-to-order and provide just as much protection as their average looking counterparts. Furthermore, choosing unconventional motorcycle helmets allows you to hit the road the unconventional way, with helmets that can resemble a prop from an alien movie.

Biting the Dust:

The one thing that most motorcyclists definitely do not like is their ride coming to an unsuspected and abrupt end (literally!). Even if you do have some skills with riding, studies have shown that most crashes happen during short trips as well. Apart from that, low speed crashes can be fatal too, so, wearing a custom motorcycle helmet can be a life saver, no matter what the speed or how long the ride, especially for the Steve McQueen types.
