Hemlet or no helmet? What do you do?
This is just a little post to get some feedback on some people's opinions on whether or not to wear a helmet! I am not sure how many states do not require by law that motorcyclists wear helmets, but I do know AZ does not..I lived in Tempe for a year while in school and used to see hundreds of people not wearing helmets, and roads out there can get pretty enticing..Recently my buddy dropped his brand new TL1000 because of some cager not using their head and pulled out in front of him, and I was talking to him about his accident..He said he probably wouldn't be here if it weren't for his brain bucket! Which is usually true..They save lives to no extent..
So I was just wondering out of however many states don't require you to wear a helmet, how many people actually don't? And why?
I realize in AZ it gets hotter than hell, I would just rather sweat than break open my skull..This also has to do with some kid who used to do 100mph down Baseline to school every day until he got caught my Tempe Police..this was on the news..And he didn't wear a helmet..I just can't fathom being subject to the consequences..
