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

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.

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!?!:barf:

Ride safe, ride smart.;) :thumb:

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.

I always always always wear a motorcycle helmet. I saw my brother crash right in front of me and it could have been fatal, he got lucky
:eek:

That's actually a part of the reason I'm not too keen on being a group rider. I'm not certain I could ever get the vision of someone crashing and being seriously injured out of my mind.

If your head is worth nothing to you, then don't cover it with anything... if it is, then protect it with the best you can afford.
Just my :2cents:

All helmets attempt to protect the user's head by absorbing mechanical energy and protecting against penetration. Their structure and protective capacity are altered in high-energy impacts. Beside their energy-absorption capability, their volume and weight are also important issues, since higher volume and weight increase the injury risk for the user's head and neck.

YES....ALWAYS! That's the first thing I do in the morning....wake up in bed...put my helmet on!



Always! Even if I'm only moving my bike a few hundred feet, just so I don't have to hold it. XD
I do this too...when I'm unlocking the padlock on my garage, filling my gas tank, dumping sand in my DEADBEAT ex-wives gas tank of her car...although I do admit, I kind of wish I would have gotten the flat black painted Arai Defiant helmet rather than the glossy black helmet because I know that when I eventually do get a scratch in it ...I'm gonna cry like a l3iTCH about it!!

I've got a helmet on right now . . .

I always wear it.

Even to the grocery store and crap like that.

You never know when you may need it.

Plus I feel naked without it.

Everything else is for all to see over there !

I'll wear a helmet into the store .

Why carry it in with you ?

Just keep it on !
