    I already did that bit in another thread.
    You really are the worst message board character ever.

    As for the idiot, I always laff at that shit. Lawmakers go nuts over seatbelt
    laws but let you ride a motorcycle with out a helmet. Last time I looked, I
    never saw an accident caused by not wearing a seatbelt, yet they'll risk someone
    dumping a bike in traffic because he got hit in the head by debris kicked up off
    the highway. Shows you the power of lobbying.

    Well, I'm sure the wind was flowing freely through his hair right before he hit the pavement. Then it flowed freely through his cranium.

    I've never actually driven or ridden on a motorcycle, but I can't imagine not wearing a helmet if I ever decided to. Although, I've never once worn a helmet riding any of my bicycles. And I was quite a rowdy rider.

    sounds fishy to me, he's been riding a long time and was with a pack of others so he probably wasn't speeding. my guess is, the local police did something to cause the accident.


    i think i've ridden my motorcycle twice without a helmet, the first time i had a bug splatter in my face, the second time i caught a stone between the eyes and cracked my glasses. I've been Happy Harry Helmet guy ever since.

    Riding along on his motorcycle, free as a bird, with the pavement in his hair?

    What a dummy, helmets are a no brainer. Any time you are riding on concrete or blacktop with no give on a motorized bike you should wear a helmet. My buddies dad bought it about 10 years ago after wiping out on his way home from the bar. At any speed above 15mph you can really injure yourself. I can't imagine the road rash at speed. Given how retarded most drivers are these days only dummies ride a bike or motorcycle in traffic.

    I have always thought wearing a helmet when leisurely riding a mountain bike is pretty gay. Unless you are biking at a high level. I actually prefer dirt trails or hard packed to concrete or blacktop when biking. If you've ever wiped out on a hard surface it is way worse. Even minor road rash burns like hell.
