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

Angry helment?

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.

Exclamation This one time...

....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!?!

Ride safe, ride smart.

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.
