CP, your comment about the quick releases got my attention. My girl and I have them on our full face helmets because they were difficult to get to the straps to unbuckle them. Figuerd they were safe because I think they are used on racing helmets also. Am I wrong on this? We usually wear a 1/2 helmet till it gets below 45 or so, or if we are sure theres a good chance of rain before we get home, but try to avoid rain when possible.
