Clap your hands now you idiots. 5 years from now the government will be using the skyrocketing motorcycle death rate (because of a lack of helmet use) to forever change motorcycling as it exists today. Before you know it we'll all be riding mopeds with airbags. Congratulations you brainless jerks.

I'm looking forward to the fresh perspectives and new information on the helmet law-vs-no-helmet-law that will emerge in this discussion. It should be very stimulating.

as a michigan resident, this won't change what I do one bit. I'll still wear my helmet at all times. the upshot is that since it will be mostly harley poseurs and squids that will ride without helmets, ultimately it will mean fewer squids and open-piped harleys on the road. win-win situation for cynical ol' me.

Of course, the article (in an insurance industry "rag") selectively uses statistics that, while not contradicting each other, do not actually support the same position.



Specifically the artical states the estimated lifetime medical costs of surviving patients with severe head injuries (doesn't specificy motorcycle or otherwise), but then when talking about states that have recently repealed helmet laws, the article states that motorcycle deaths have gone up...



seems to me if the rider is dead, there are no lifetime medical costs.......



here in WA we have mandatory helmet laws, in florida where my retired dad lives (no old people jokes please) they don't. I wear a helmet both places.

Anyone who goes more than forty miles and hour knows that the first advantage of a helmet is that it keeps your eyes from watering, and eventually drying out, as though you have the Mother of All Allergies. You can wear goggles and one of those dorky 'barely legal' helmets, but I don't see a big demographic for people who insist on their right to look like an idiot. Just wear a proper 'Darth Vader' helmet and get over it.

Good god!!! Not another helmet thread?!



With that said, everyone start watching the MI classifieds for slightly bent motorcycles being sold cheap by widows of the STUPID.
