I made something similar a while back... Works nice

its like a snuggie for bikers...

i was actually thinking about making something that could snap onto the bottom of the bubble shield to protect the neck. kinda similar.

but wtf do you do if your helmet is a biltwell and has no snappies on the sides?

I think it's a good idea. over the years I have had a few bandanas blow off of Me
in the wind, totally sucks when that happens!
just recently lost a really nice one.
If I dont wear some kind of bandana on long rides my sinuses get totally jacked,
runny nose, etc.
also they come in handy if you hit a swarm of bugs. the bubble shields look good but they
make Me feel like i have a full face helmet on which seems restrictive or closed in.

when i had this idea i thaught it was super rad. then after i made it i think it looks kinda funny. still cooler than a full face helmet. i was thinking of making some and selling them but i needed a general concensus. thanks for the imput so far.

they are leather lined around the snaps so you cant pull the snaps out.
i didnt know that the built well helmets didnt have snaps. it wouldnt be hard to install some.

ahhh, well, it seems to me its kinda like a turtleneck dickie (google image turtleneck dickie if ya dont know what i mean - shit google image it if you do know what i mean) My grandma used to fucking send these to me WTF grandma!?!?!?!? I mean why not just rock a real fucking turledick shirt if you need a toasty nape?

all that said; i thinkyou could sell them - think of all the really gay apparel that sells for fuck sake - Why does 'Doo-rag' come to mind

But to me, its kinda like buying a skateboard at walmart - sure it looks like skateboard and maybe smells liek a skateboard, but that dont make it cool!

Ill front some start up money to sell them gay things though if ya need :)

Guess im just not cool. If its cold enuff to be wearing insulated anything on my face i wear this new invetion called a full face helmet. On the other hand start a blog and sell them. You know the sayin if you build it, they will buy it.

what about a clear bubble shield? Fulmer makes a nice one that fits snug to any 3/4 lid. Plus, you dont have to wear glasses.

i was just thinking that you could take it off while stopped at a light and throw it into your pocket. or visa versa

Personally i cant stand my bubble, its so noisy and i get a lot of air that comes up through the bottom. I have been rocking mx goggles and a bandanna in the cold and the snap idea seems like it would work pretty good.

personally i dig the bubble, mines chrome. it only sucks when the light fades. i really notice how much warmer my eyesockets are vs just glasses and turtlefleece

I think I'm going to make another that a little more stream line. hopefully it look cooler. I've been riding around with it the last couple days and its been nice. but it reminds me of the transformers. or an 80's move outtake of a future cop helmet. maybe mad max

I'm in the process of building a bike that the local media and police have described as "something a Medieval Knight would ride into battle, but if it were a sportster and not a horse."

All gothic style.

Other than chain male, nothing else would suffice.

it looks better, but maybe you couid stitch some fabric to cover the neck too. it just looks like your neck would get cold

I have to agree about sewing a tea cozy to a helmet.........buy a fucking fullface optimus prime!!!

steffan
03-19-2010, 3:19 PM
dudes..................transformers are awesome and full face helmets suck unless it 35 degs or colder. otherwise you just look all icon moto and shit with your special ninja friends.
becides why would anyone spend $150 plus for a helmet that is only going to get worn for a couple months. for some of us less than that. if your a full face guy then go for it. i just thought that this would be a cheap and easy alternative.

rustrocket84
03-19-2010, 10:52 PM
I just recently bought a full face that i'll wear year round. Maybe not as cool, but I've got a second kid coming any day now. For the couple of guys that know me from here know that I don't have a car, ride year round, and my bike doesn't like to be passed.

Now more importantly to help you out, I don't really care for the look of your design, but I could care less about the look if it functions well. I personally found bandanas to be as useless as hemorrhoid. Outside of taking the sting away they let all the cold right through. Unless you have some kind of super bandana that I never found I can't say they help much. I have a big ass polar fleece neck warmer thing that I used to wear for winter. Which also sucked because it would get soaked with water, and run down my chest and back, thoroughly soaking me under my rain gear, and eventually all the way to my taint. And before you can say something about it, yes I wear rain gear.

steffan
03-20-2010, 11:32 AM
im not saying that full face helmets are not cool. i was just knocking the people who were bagging on the look of my product. im just saying that this was for people who wear a 3/4 helmet like i do year round. since ive made this i have forgotten i even own a full face. sure anything but a full face sucks when it raining. but like you said......even that doesnt help. rain just sucks!

I personally dont like to the look of your idea but if it works use it. I normally just use a bandana and a neck warmer that was issued to me in the army.

10 years ago maybe, i bought a banana yellow triumph one piece rain suit. i figured if anyone knows rain, its the Brits. I was right. i still have that thing. it still keeps me dry, but its a pain in the ass to put on and i look like a fuckin retard (short bus seriously). i bought a two piece tourmaster rig and it works until its starts to downpour for longer than 15 minutes. BUT if i wear my full face and my good winter gloves, i usually stay dry. unless of course im going to see steffan and then i get soaked.. haha hijack over. your shit, steffan, is a good idea. i dont know that id wear it, but at least youre thinkin

04-06-2010, 1:43 PM
I've always been a firm believer that nobody really gives a shit what my opinion is, but for what it's worth, I don't like the look and wouldn't buy one. Then again, I wouldn't buy 90% of the stuff I see people wearing, so maybe you'll make millions. Good luck with it either way.

+1 on the beard. just once it gets warm you have to be careful because it works like an airbag for bugs.

steffan
04-07-2010, 6:45 PM
is this beard enough? the weather has been getting alot warmer so i havnt used this thing latley.

im thinking the "look" of this thing will change considerably depending on the stitching and materials used. i made these up as a proto type to see how the idea would work. to me this doesnt look any different than the h.d. face mask or the same thing that i see people wearing with the skull printed on the front.

all you haters out there i know you wear them! dont lie!
