    After 16 years of riding, I've become a monster on clear, sunny days

    ...and I've never felt safer, because pedestrians and drivers alike notice me, wave at me, even take my photo, after I bought this helmet cover on a whim from a Facebook ad (and combined it with a dark tinted visor)!

    LOL, that (and matching furry gloves) should be required for RC's when doing demo's!

    When I did them, I always used a hi-vis helmet with a duckbill visor. This helps students "see" my head turn in demo's. Sometimes, students don't wear their glasses during range exercises, due to inconvenience of helmets. That, and vanity.

    Is that the famed "cookie monster?" (Altho, really, I'm more of a "pie guy...")
    Knowledge speaks, wisdom listens.

    Well technically it's not "Cookie Monster", any more than the red monster helmet cover they make (in a series of them by Moto Loot) is "Elmo". But it's obviously meant to evoke those guys.
