Harley-Davidson®: The Most Essential Piece of Safety Gear - Motorcycle Helmets for Men and Women
We think you should wear a helmet when riding your motorcycle. There was a time when helmets were rarely worn – back when they consisted of leather with some padding - great for cuts and abrasions but not good enough to mitigate the severity of concussions or skull fractures. Let’s face it; riding a motorcycle is not a walk in the park. It has risks, and studies have shown that motorcycle helmets do save lives. Biking accidents have a way of ruining your day. Scrapes, cuts, bruised egos, a cast on the ankle, not to mention a bike in need of repair – accidents are not fun. And then there’s the dealing with the bad memories of an accident – and for sure, it is better to have these memories rather than having passed into that eternal darkness where only faith sustains. Let’s not test that belief system. Keep the memories alive by wearing a helmet. Fortunately, we live in a time where polycarbonate technology has developed to a point where motorcycle helmets are nearly indestructible in the process of protecting the head. We have all the styles that you need –Full Face, Half Face, Open Face, ¾ Face, Modular, and other Helmet Accessories. Look sharp and be safe. Harley-Davidson® men's and women's motorcycle helmets protect your most precious asset with style, YOU! Our large inventory and full size runs has what you need.

Here is what the CDC says, in part, about wearing a motorcycle helmet. If you are not a believer please read:
"Motorcycle crash deaths are costly, but preventable. The single most effective way for states to save lives and save money is a universal helmet law.
- Helmets reduce the risk of death by 37%.
- Helmets reduce the risk of head injury by 69%.
Our role is to identify ways to prevent injury and death and rigorously check what works and what does not work. For motorcycle safety, the research shows that universal helmet laws are the most effective way to reduce the number of deaths and traumatic brain injuries that result from crashes.”
– Dr. Thomas Frieden, former CDC Director
