Full face helmets provide the best protection. And with the right paint scheme, the look sharp too.
However it depends on what kind of bike he's planning to get. If he's getting a sport bike, then the full face will look okay. If he's getting a cruiser, the full face looks a bit out of place. They make short helmets that come down just to the top of the ear. Not as much protection, but they do look a bit better. And again, a nicely painted helmet can make all the difference. Obviously there's no mandatory helmet law where you are, or he'd have to wear a helmet. So it might be tough for you do actually get him to wear it. Personally, I never ride without a helmet, it's just not worth the risk. So visit : Motorcycle Low Profile Helmets
Yes, you're right. Riding with the motorcycle helmet is the best advise.
But, how do i choose for me the best motorcycle helmet?
To choose the best helmet, I think, You must know 3 things:
1. safety rating
2. type of helmet (to identify which type you want)
3. and how to measure your head size to fit with the helmet...
You can google these above things for more details, or visit some site like: revzilla.com, helmetszone.com ...
Hope this help
