When you spend all your time driving new cars, you get kind of spoiled with features and amenities. From backup cameras and GPS to voice-controlled radio and more, driving a new car is pretty great. All that technology can make driving easier, but it can also be very distracting. A new company called Skully has created an advanced motorcycle helmet that adds all those features into your head protection, but is that setup going to make riders safer, or will it be more distracting and dangerous, especially for new riders?
As a new rider who just bought my first motorcycle, I am excited by the idea of having all my favorite amenities available to me when I’m only using two wheels instead of four, but will having so much visual and aural stimulation cause me to pay less attention than I should?
I am obviously not an expert on the subject, but I have a few thoughts. I was hoping that you, the wonderful readers of TopSpeed could help me out. Is this helmet a good idea or not?
