$780 and not DOT approved?

Might as well just buy a really nice $150 predator mask from a Halloween store.  You'll look scarier and have the same level of protection.

I don't feel like tracking it down right now, but a few days ago somebody posted their review, complete with video, on r/motorcycles on Reddit about how the Predator helmets are a poorly made POS that shouldn't be trusted to protect your head on a bicycle much less a motorcycle.

In any case, I learned my lesson about not wearing full face helmets when I crashed and split my eye open when my glasses got shoved into my face. I've got a scar to remind me every morning when I put on makeup why I shouldn't be an idiot again.

If your state has free DOT motorcycle safety classes, everyone should go to the beginners' one.  You spend a few hours going over safety and why you should wear a full face helmet with sensible design and should be alert and blah blah blah.  Then you go on motorcycles and the people who don't listen get hurt.  It is so satisfying.

There was an idiot in my class who opted for the legal in my state 3/4 helmet instead of full face.  He clamped down on the front brake, went over his handlebars and landed right on his mostly unprotected face.  He broke a tooth that went through his face and had some bruises.  He had been loudly eating from a crinkly bag all day too, which added to it.
