    While I can appreciate people like these fashion statements, but come on Bikers? The first time you don the old skid lid all that hair oil will stick to the lining. My missus complains about helmet hair after she wastes money in the hairdressers than gets on her bike! I’ll stick to the good old fashioned (maybe it will become old school) long hair. LOL

    Haircuts ‘n Helmets! Don’t believe in either one of ’em! Neither did Indian Larry, he went out doin’ what he loved with Freedom as his base. I’ve gotten one haircut since 1974 ‘an that wuz a mistake [felt like a dog with his ass shaved!]. Let it fly in the breeze! Ya know where Samson got his STRENGTH don’t ya? Till that bitch Delieya gave him a snip job, went ta hell after that, turned him into everyone else [his demise!]. Nope, the only choppers around me I ride! Yuk-Yuk!! Wiz

    I can smell the stench of new leather from here. I bet there’s a Starbucks next door.

    Love the 40s to 50s hairstyles for myself. I’m a throwback. Not all bikers are pigeonholed into looking like a Dave Mann painting. It’s what you want to be. For me, the 40s to 50s Knuckle and Pan go together with the haircut look. Loved the video.
