If you have to smoke when you're riding, you're better off having a big enough windscreen that it deflects the wind above your head. 25 years ago, when I still smoked, I tried smoking while riding, and invariably, some hot ash would still end up getting blown back in my face or down my shirt. Nothing like having your chest hair catch fire to break your concentration.

If you smoke through a hole in a full face helmet, where are you going to blow the smoke?

At my peak I was a two pack a day smoker, and even at that rate, after a few aborted attempts, I stopped trying to smoke on the bike. If for no other reason than you look like a dork when you do it.

I'm out for a ride on a nice day and I get behind someone that's smoking or I pull up at a stop light and there's a cigarette hanging out the window next to me. It's really rude that some/most smokers have no consideration for those around them that want to breathe clean air.

The obvious answer is a e-cigarette with a re-purposed hydration tube.

I'm glad they didn't have vaping back when I still smoked, because I'm sure I'd have gone with your idea. I would have probably built a special rig to mount the e-cigarette to my helmet, and would have doubled my dork factor by looking like Boba Fett riding down the road...

Seriously? Ironbutt? I find that stopping every so often to have a smoke and a bottle of gatorade is required by my butt.

You don't want to make an ash of yourself.

I've never noticed how many people smoke weed while driving until riding a motorcycle. It surprises me how easily I smell it while riding behind smokers.

Not to be a hater but I always chuckle when I see people riding while smoking. I mean, come on, really? If you are going to have a nit fit then just pull over and choke one down.

Anything to take your attention off the road and take one hand from controlling the bike sounds like an unnecessary risk for both you and other drivers/riders around you IMHO
