Thinking of getting a front flip helmet when I get my 125 are they worth it?

me personally would only ever wear a solid full face helmet..  it also depends on what you will be using your bike for.. if you work as a courier or a copper.. where you need to be seen or talk clearly to people.. then they may be worth it... like i said... personal preference...

Just bought

a new Shoei, not flip-up. Can't see the point of flip-up; it adds weight, can't be as safe and I can't see a use. It is not THAT difficult to get your normal ones off if you need to.

Love em

I love em - they may be a tad heavier but they are so much easier - if you stop to talk to someone you just flip up, a lot of garages don,t make u take em off, easier to stop and have a fag and biggest bonus of all most come with drop down sun visor.  Although at long last a few full face lids now also have drop down sun visor.  :roll eyes:

My full face has a drop down sun visor

First I forgot it was there for weeks, then I tried it and smacked myself on the nose with it. My nose must be bigger than I thought. :upset:

Not as funny as a story I overheard in a cafe last weekend. A chap trying out his drop down sunvisor for the first time found himself looking at the wrong side of the "remove this label" stcker, and then couldn't find the button to lift it again. It hit his nose too. :biggrin:

Modular helmets.

Caberg Flip got 5* in sharp tests.

so they can be safer than a £500 helmet.

They are useful when talking to people, asking directions, popping into the shops or buying petrol if you don't wanna take off your helmet and put it down on the petrol doused floor.

If anyone challenges you when you're wearing the lid with the face flipped up, just tell them in a confident and offhand manner - "No, it's okay" and carry on.

Bike Police like them

They don't have to take them off when speaking to a member of the public.
But, I think it's because it makes eating donuts a doddle :biggrin:
