I got an old trail bike from my uncle, and I'm wonder if/when I get it running, I'd be able to use an offroad style helmet on the street? is there legality issues?

duhhh... me stupid...

As long as the helmet is DOT approved it will be legal. It should have a DOT label somewhere on the helmet usually on the back if it is DOT approved.

Yeah its gotta be DOT approved...
But why would you take the chance wearing a motorcross helmet on a street bike?

because it wasnt going to be a full duty street bike. trail bike that would rarely see the road, just curious.

doesnt matter any more, I bought a full face.
