Default Let freedom ring.

If you want to wear then no problem, there's no law requiring you not to wear. Now there's no law either way. Way to go PA.

Default Let me handle this

You're an idiot if you don't make the same decesion I made.



My freedom of choice is my right. Any arguement to the contrary is bogus. Your choice, however, is dumb and stupid so we need laws so I don't have to pay for your mistakes.



Did I miss anything?

Not quite arrogant or insulting enough, but all in all it's about 95%.



Enough for me, I'm sick of these "I believe in freedom for everyone, BUT...." threads.

I just want to know what your MSF scores are before you go spouting off like that.

I always wear a helmet. However, I will gladly pay higher insurance premiums if it means you can exercise a freedom of choice. I will think you are unwise, stupid even, if you go lidless. Enjoy your freedom and be careful. Way to go PA!

Kudos to the PA chapter of ABATE for giving riders the choice to wear, and bigger kudos for not following other chapters of ABATE in spreading misinformation about helmet safety. This is the way it should be done. Good job!

Default Let me try.

First before replying to my post you must give your MSF scores. Right GeezerGlide (Buz) ??


[*]All this shows is that Pa has high proportion of influential ABATE baby boomer gray pony tailed idiots


[*] The law is unenforceable i.e. police will not bother to stop someone without a helmet because they are so many ifs. If you are over 21 and have ridden for two years and completed a MSF class. Right everyone is going to wear a tee shirt that says over 21 over 2 years of experience with a MSF logo. The net effect is to legalize helmetless riding for everyone because it will be impossible to determine law breakers without stopping folks. Cops are not going to bother with doing that. STUPID LAW




[*] Once again ABATE has managed to make motorcyclist look like idiots by having the wrong priority on this issue. This is not the issue folks should be spending time and polical captial on. Things like increased penalities for motorist who kill motorcyclists and protecting motorcylists ability to obtain health insurance should be things the AMA and ABATE should have as top prority

Why should a motorist who kills a motorcyclist be punished any more than a motorist that kills a non-motorcyclist? Killing is killing, correct?



And, can anyone out there attest to being denied health insurance because they ride a motorcycle?
