I always wear a helmet and always will. Plus its the law hear. But I would love the visual of riding, hair flowing freely, but just a nice visual, would never do it in real life, unless it was in a padded room lol
a while ago I spied a pic of a guy on a strecher with big blue eyes and not much of his face left. very gory!!!! all that was left of the lower half was noyhing . but you could just about make out a long molar in the mess . and he was alive. needless to say that will not be my choice. plus all the full face helments are so cool.
Always wear it...got hit by car in a parking lot a couple of days ago and cracked my noggin pretty good and didn't feel a thing. Could have been bloody without it!! and that was at 5 mph, except he hit me so I am the one that went flyin...
....I was skating at the local skate park....and I fell down....and I didn't wake up for a few minutes.....and when I did I was in an ambulance and the paramedics were like...."Man, you almost killed yourself....how many fingers am I holding up?".....That was with no helmet and not very fast....imagine what would happen at 35 mph!?!
how about riding without a jacket? Today alone I saw about 10 sportbikes. not a single rider.....wait actually one was wearing a jacket,the rest regular shirts and sneakers. I guess it's tempting because it can get real hot inside them but would I rather a shirt drenched in blood or sweat.
