I'll admit I use to be for 'Your Own Good' laws such as helmet laws, largely to due with growing up in libral, CA. After joining the military, seen more of this country and world, put up with some really obnoxious ‘FYOG’ rules... I’ve grown to believe in Darwinism.



If you're old enough to know better, and do or don't do it anyways, be it one your head.



Pun intended.

"You can wear the best helmet there is, and you can be killed just as easily as the guy who is not wearing one," said Consiglio, president of the Michigan chapter of ABATE _ American Bikers Aiming Toward Education."

Based on what study Mr. Consiglio? What statistics back this statement up? I agree with the AMA a study is needed. If a long-term study says more people die who don't wear helmets then we need to have a law. Like Michigan Governor said "somebody's freedom ends where my car begins."

Too bad she was born in Canada cause she would make a great president Fiscal Conservative, Social Liberal like Arnold... hmmm...and so intelligent...

A "study" would probably also show that less people would die if motorcycles were outlawed. Would you be in favor of that too? Where do the "for your own good" laws end?

Vince is an, uh, interesting fellow. The man attaches a side car to his bike so he can ride all winter long. Do you know what the winters are like here in Michigan? Clearly, not every piston is firing upstairs.



He also did a horrible job of running the MSF classes in SE Michigan, but that's another rant.

I always thought ABATE was A Brotherhood Against Totalitarian Enactments (not sure where I heard that). Hmmmmm...
