You are telling Newbs that DOT approved garbage is as protective as a high end helmet. Give your head a shake. Just because you trust your head to a half helmet, don't advise newbs to do the same.
Well we will talk DOT, apples to apples once again...your saying a $50 DOT helmet is not as protective as a $400 DOT helmet??
Only reason I said Snell is your brought it up comparing a DOT half helmet to a SNELL full face Arai.
As far as the newbs, we are grown ups we can make the decision for ourselves. http://www.motorcyclistonline.com/ge...iew/index.html
