So, for example, if they have 10 times the riders and double the deaths, that would be bad? Goes to show that with the right manipulation and selection, data can be used to prove anything to anyone.

Yo, I bet you are also this worked up about people in cars not wearing helmets. A whole lot more money would be saved making car drivers were helmets as opposed to motorcyclist..........



Man for some people its no brain-no headache...

This is parallel to the recent issue of whether insurance underwriters should be permitted to charge higher premiums to motorcyclists.



I think they should. Cost should be localized to benefit. If you don't want to wear a helmet, fine, just pay even higher premiums or void your coverage.

Insurance companies should be allowed to place whatever restrictions they choose upon their customers in a voluntary transaction, who, if I am not mistaken, are free to choose NOT to be their customers at any time. The question should be "should government be allowed to tell anyone how to run their business?"

-Helmet laws

-Harleys, for or against

-Not being able to ride to a modern sportbikes potential



Did I miss any other boring repeating topics of debate that the arguements never change?

Longride, if you weren't so damn ugly I could kiss you.



















Oh yeah, and it'd help if you were a girl too.
