    At least now please ban the full faced helmet

    Prohibit the entry wearing full face helmets into any bank, shop, public place or private building.

    Where is that captain or major fellow who got a stay order against the full faced helmet ban? Recently stopped at an accident where a full faced fellow was sprawled on the road. Proceeded because the full face would have provided him the much needed protection. (Apart from the fashion of wearing it)
