Helmet's make great sliders BRO! You didn't know?



Wear a helmet, don't wear a helmet, who gives a shit it's your life... Just remember those around you that you're leaving behind. Is it worth it?

Not at all....out of town with speed limits over 25 mph ???

If you were riding down the strip with your helmet on and no one else was wearing one, would you feel like a dork ?

We know what the safe and logical answer is, but it is America, so what would you guys actually do ??



.
michigan no longer has a helmet law. i wear mine every time i get on the bike. without exception.

i've said it before that people who ride without a helmet aren't leaving anything unprotected.

also, i don't ride in large groups, so if i ever found myself in one and i was the only one wearing a helmet, that's all the more reason to just stop for a few minutes and give them a head start. i don't wanna be any part of that...

Would it hurt if your bike was at a stand still and you fell off and hit your head? Of course. What about doing that and dragging your face at 50mph? Riding w/o a helmet is a slap in the face to everyone that cares about you.

Well, I just got out of the ER and I'm laid up in the hospital. My helmet saved my life again last night. I hit a deer going 60-70mph. Two of them ran out in front of me and I drilled one right in the side. I'm hurt but I will live. I probably wouldn't if I wasn't wearing my helmet. The bike is pretty messed up but I guess I'm lucky to survive. That's the second deer I've hit in 3 years.

You do know there are easier ways to kill deer...right?

Not really the point of the topic but,I would not be alive if I wasn't wearing a helmet during my crash in Topeka last summer. I spent 4 days in icu with a bad concussion and bleeding in my brain.
