I switch back and forth between a full face helmet and a half helmet all the time.....with that being said here is what I've observed.
When I have on my leather vest and half helmet I get waved at by the "other guys" all the time, almost every time actually. When I have on my Joe Rocket jacket and full face helmet that number drops substantially! This is not a speculation, it is a fact. I am wondering if perhaps with the half helmet from a distance I look more like "their kind"? With the full helmet you can almost definetly tell I am not on a HD as very few riders of that brand were those. With the half helmet I get all the waves all the time, guess they can't tell it's a Metric until it's too late? I wonder how many of them wish after I pass they could have their wave back?!
