This is not enforced in Germany but it is in Austria. I heard the same for many other countries, including Australia.

Along highway 95, just northwest of Las Vegas, helmet removal is required by the Paiute Tribal Police at the Paiute Nation service station near their resort and golf course.

RE: Why wear a modular helmet?
I enjoy riding in a modular vs. a full coverage - option of "opening up" and getting some air while stopped or paying for fuel when entering store necessary.

RE: Why wear a modular helmet?
Here in Canada the only person at a gas station is the convenience store cashier. Most people use credit cards at the pumps. The pumps are usually well away from the store, so you are on your own topping up. I have to assume there are security cameras for licence plates in case of a gas and dash episode.

I do remove my Shoei if I enter the store only because it is hard to eat an ice cream bar with it on.

Or after spending 5 minutes putting your earplugs in and helmet on, the guy in car beside decides he wants to talk you about your bike. Huh

RE: Why wear a modular helmet?
First time modular owner here (Schuberth C3-Pro). I bought it because of claims of quietness, not because of the moveable chinbar. It's certainly quieter than my full face Schuberth S-1, and the chinbar is growing on me, but I guess I'm indifferent about that feature.

RE: Why wear a modular helmet?
I don't think I'll ever wear a modular helmet again. I had one come open on me in an accident. Granted it was on a snowmobile, but close enough. It was white-out conditions, and the right front ski glanced off a large ice-boulder. That simultaneously caused my head to lunge forward and the handle bar to sharply turn left. The handle bar hit the bottom/chin of the helmet, and it came open. But the handle bar kept going, and hit me in the jaw. It was a nasty smack. If the modular hadn't opened, I think the force may have been more distributed. Because it opened, I took a lot of the force on the jaw.
