Does anyone here wear earrings with a full face helmet?

I have no problem sliding the helmet off but taking it off is a pain (literally) when I forget I have them in. If I remember that I have them in and don't just rip the helmet off, I can angle it wear it doesn't tug at it or pull off the backing.

Solutions? And don't say stop wearing earrings lol

Do you pull the bottom apart with the chin strap?


Wear studs instead of hoops?

Oh, this is right up my alley! I wear earrings and a full face helmet. If I have my hair down I can wear big earrings as my really thick hair acts as a cushion between my ears and the helmet. The helmet basically just pulls off my hair. If I expose my ears like in the below pic, I have to do small earrings or the helmet will pull on them when taking them off.

Yes I pull the straps out and to the sides and I don't wear hoops lol

I have short hair lol

Just stop wearing , Oops. Can't say that... Hum, helmet! That's it, Stop Wearing the Helmet. :devil:
Half helmet
I'll stick to my full face helmet. I don't feel a half helmet provides much protection to the head unless you're hiting the ground straight upside down. I need to keep my face looking good. It's the only thing I have going for me with the ladies :wink2: lol

Duct Tape

Have you considered wrapping your head with Duct Tape?
Place one end over your right ear being careful to cover the earring.
Spin in a clockwise direction keeping the tape level so as the Duck Tape is dispensed it will also cover the Left ear
and protect the second earring from being effected by the Helmet padding.
Best of luck with your jewelry issues.

Yeah, not hitting the ground is an important part of riding. Probably even more important than what kind of helmet you wear.

Of course, I obviously never had to worry about keeping my mug handsome, but I still never wanted to bang it on the pavement.

I do but must be selective on what earrings I wear though. Most I trim the post down a little can wear them pretty comfy but the backs have been lost a lot. I keep spares or don't wear them until I get where I am going. In My 3/4 helmet can wear almost anything pretty easily though, in my full face is the tedious one.

It depends on the size of earring(s) you are talking about. I have seen SOME guys, who have chosen to wear HUGE round rings, bigger in diameter than my wedding ring, in each ear! Now THAT would be a hassle!! Not just dangling, mind you, but within the earlobe!!!

Eye is right......wear a half helmet.

Since I got my left ear pierced, I eventually tried a simple hoop style earring (about .300 in diameter), but went back to a simple stud (fake diamond) BECAUSE of that very issue of catching it on things.
Not only that, but I can sleep on a studded earring......I can’t comfortably sleep on a hoop style earring. Yup, I can simply remove it at night if I wanted.........but I digress.

The subject of this thread caught my attention because I guess I never expected to see this question on a motorcycle themed forum. But I am glad we are seeing more women in the riding community. But for the life of me I don't understand why anyone would wear unnecessary jewelry while riding. Anything extra between your body and the ground other than protective gear will just make things worse. I made the mistake of having my cell phone in my chest pocket of my jacket 18 years ago when I had my one and only motorcycle crash, and that phone gave me several broken ribs that I might otherwise have not had to suffer. I don't even wear a watch when I ride, I leave it in the bike's storage area just as I do virtually everything in my pockets as well (other than my firearm).

Yep, I'm with you on this. My wallet goes in the trunk, along with anything else I might be carrying. I only ride with a few paper dollars in my pocket for gas and such.
A few years back, I was headed to the pharmacy on my Honda 90. I had an empty plastic prescription bottle in my pants pocket. I hit a small diesel fuel spill on a corner and the front wheel slid out from under me. Down I went. Slow speed so no major damage to me or the bike, except.....
I had a big gouge in my hip where that damned prescription bottle was.
That hurt for days.
Never again. It goes in the trunk.
