Thumbs up

For those guys who don't wear a helmet.... I'm one of the guys who cleans up the mess after the guy who pulled out of the 7-11 didn't see you... After having to scrape up what's left of you, I will not leave the garage with at least a helmet, jacket, boots, and at least jeans...

You only have to go 10 mph, THEN, "someone's calling 911...!"

I rode through the hotel parking lot over to the gas station in Florida without putting the helmet on. I can`t imagine EVER riding on the street without a helmet, for one, it hurts your ears x10, second you feel incredibly vulnerable (sp), and third, you don`t only look dumb, but it just screams "I have no common sense".

Look . . . the people you are after are the people you depend on. We cook your meals, we haul your trash, we connect your calls, we drive your ambulances, we guard you while you sleep. Do not fu|< with us.

You don't let them ride. That's a key reason why so many like a single-seater; there's no question about them getting a ride.

If you're cruising for chicks, and want to be cool yet safe, get some sweet lids (unique or interesting designs), and keep one bungied to the back. I don't give a hoot if you're doing 5mph or 500mph, you need a lid. Hell, I'd call you a buffoon for not wearing a jacket too, but its your skin, and you're more likely to survive a crash w/o a jacket than w/o a helmet.

always
Except one time i just went out with sunglasses on to the store and got hit by a june beetle and shattered my left lens.

Also i believe there might be more wrecks on a cruising strip going 30mph or less then there are on open road. Plus chicks like the mystery with whos behind the chrome visor

Hey I'm one of those guys too. Don't you just love the squids that are doing a wheelie at 80mph and wreck not wearing a helmet, having to scrap up brain matter and skull fragments. I always wear my helmet no matter what the temp is and where I'm going. i don't want the EMT's and paramedics that come to the scene if god forbid I have to crash to go through the same thing I have done on these scene's.
