How to Measure a proper helmet SIZING: To measure your head size, wrap a tape measure horizontally around your forehead. Select the helmet that is the closest fit to that size. A helmet should fit snug on your head. If it moves while wearing, it is too large. If it is painful to wear, it is too small. For proper sizing, your nearest dealer will be able to help you get sized up. FITTING: Open the chin straps and slide the helmet onto your head starting at the forehead. A helmet should feel snug. If it slides on easily it is too big. It should feel tight to pull down. Make sure the inner padding fits snug all around. You should feel the padding pressing against your cheeks and head. The last check for a proper fit is to test if it moves while wearing, there should be no movement if you shake your head. Place your hands on the helmet and move it front to back and side-to-side. If there is a lot of movement, try a size down.
If you are not familiar with Jesse Rooke Customs you should be. He builds a
little bit of everything, and it's all nasty. From hand-built bobbers and
choppers to café style racers to motards; He's even built a gnarly little three
wheeled hot rod. Now he's teamed up with Speed and Strength to bring you the
Rooke Customs Graphic on this DOT approved SS 600 helmet.
A variation of this graphic can be found in the backround of some of his bike
photos and definitely has a 70's TransAm sort of feel to it. The base color is
flat black. These Firebird wings are outlined in red and white pinstriping and
filled in with gold that has a finely textured metal flake added to it. The
feather shape is used again on the top of the helmet and begins at the front and
repeats to the bottom at the back where the Rooke symbol is located.
