Any suggestions on a decent helmet I can fit into my saddlebag as a back up/rider helmet? I've seen some half helmets in stores for like 75 but again this is a back up or for a rider and one that I can fit in my saddle bag. I have a full face that flips up and that is what I will wear most of the time but I might wear the half for kicking around but most likely it is going be for the girl who says take me for a ride... So I'm looking for something under $50, as much under as possible, otherwise I can just go buy one in a store but I would like something that I feel like I'm protecting a rider as much as possible. A link would be great.

I don't think there are any that will fit in a standard size saddlebag. A half helmet will take up the least amount of space. You should be able to find a basic DOT approved one for around $50 if you shop online.

If you are buying it for a passenger, it should be properly fitted to their heads, too big, no protection, too small, well they aren't going to get it on!!

Busted lol. Women can't seem to help themselves from asking for a ride when they see a guy on a bike and I'm a man of the people so I must give them what they want, then I'll take them on my bike.

Many girls will want you to wear some type of protection anyway. Its only fair to offer some protection for her head as well.

If you look for a good helmet for your passengers, get a one size fits all stocking cap and tell them its DOT approved... if they buy it, tell them you are joking.

If they don't buy it and want a real helmet, tell them its not free, and give them plenty of options.

Bell makes 2 adjustable helmets, $100+, but most likely a small or medium half shell will fit your purposes good enough.

There are a couple with built in visors for $40, probably a good idea in case they don't wear glasses.

My wife requires that when I go out girl shopping that I ride the Custom, hottest looking babe bike.........with a solo seat
