Most, not all, V-twin riders mostly want to be seen. And so the shock of seeing someone with a skeleton face mask on is a thrill for them, more probably than twisting up the throttle on those bikes. I could be wrong.

I'm not a pshrink but it all goes along with the "image". In my opinion they want to be the bad boy. They do this to keep people at a distance so that they don't find out that in truth they're either afraid or just like everyone else.

They do not like to wear full face helmets but do not like getting hit is the face with bugs, rocks and bees. I know from experience because I did not like to wear those silly face rags in the past and now I would not ride with anything but my full face. And it makes the young ones look scary as is the image they like.

I used to ride a VTX 1300R model and now ride the F6B but I too ride in a tank top, jeans and boots. I figure hopefully, I will do more riding and less sliding so I wear the tanktop. If it starts to rain, then I put the face mask (black, no design) on to help with the rain as my arms are like steal cables but my face is baby butt soft. Have I had the pleasure of road rash, yes on my arms and shoulder, and it heals. I read on the internet that chicks dig scars and you know the internet is the truth!
