I wonder what it will do to the amount of bikers killed in crashes.

Dude, like say, a helmet will help you if your legs are chopped off.

I am the Mighty Furball. Hear me fluff.

I can only be responsible for what I say, not what you understand.

Hasn't turned out so well here in Michigan:

Bridge: No-helmet law brings more deaths, higher bills

Study: Helmet law weakened, motorcycle injuries up

I've gone helmet-less a few times but regardless of the law; for me (it's a common sense, no-brainer) I'm safer wearing a helmet.....

That's good, but you know that it gives insurance companies a reason to raise rates. And don't think that they won't.

Not trying to creating an argument, I am all for choice.
