Hello, I’m Kevin McLendon from the Motorcycle Helmet Advisory Council. Of course, we all enjoy Shorty Motorcycle Helmets and the humor they bring, and we all can agree they have their place. But that place ends where Half Shell Motorcycle Helmets begin. Don’t believe me? Consider the following.
First, imagine a wise old master in his dojo. He teaches his students to better themselves each and every day. Now he sees a fly. With lightning reflexes he grabs into the air, catching it… with a Shorty on? No way. A master like that would be shamed. He’d be reduced to taking minor entertainment jobs in cheap National Lampoon movies as “third guy who gets hit in testicles” or “eighth ninja from left who gets hit in testicles”.
Now picture a scholar. He is debating the finer points of political theory with his colleagues. He goes to make a point while wearing his Black Half Shell Motorcycle Helmet. With a Half Shell it is easy to look classy! But with a Shorty, the scholar’s now lost his lunch, and the colleagues need new shirts.
These are just two of the many examples which illustrate why, if you absolutely need a new motorcycle helmet, you should just go out and buy new a motorcycle helmet! Please remember: the Shorty is a helmet, but Half Shells are a way of life. Thanks for your time.
