Don't get me wrong; I love my ARAI Signet GTR (Cathcart Replica), but it's at the end of its service life, and I just can't stomach the $550 re-entry fee.
You should see how much the newest Arai's are priced at my Dealer, it's like $800.00?

"And in states with helmet laws, 14% of fatalities weren’t wearing a helmet. Helmets, not loud pipes, safe lives!"

Does that mean that in states with helmet laws, 86% of fatalities WERE wearing a helmet?

So, would it be better or worse if 100% of all motorcycle fatalities were wearing helmets?

I say, if you like it wear it, that being the main objective. Me I'll never wear anything but an Arai. That's just me though, no matter what any survey say's.
