I lost a friend in High School to not wearing a helmet.

I was unfortunately first on the seen of a motorcycle/vehicle head on accident once. If riders saw what I saw they would all strap on a helmet.

I was arguing with someone once about wearing helmets.

He claimed wearing a helmet was more dangerous than not wearing one.

We were standing next to a brick building, so I put my lid on, banged my head against the wall, and said, "Your turn."

For some reason he wasn't up to the challenge.

A helmet saved my life during a motorcycle crash at about 100 mph. I always wear a helmet.

I lowsided at 45mph coming around a turn when 2 deer popped in front of me and I just grabbed the brake and prayed. If I didn't have a helmet my face would probably be flat and I definately wouldn't have a nose anymore.

Another one bites the dust....seriously, though, this is why you wear a helmet.

Motorcycle riders who don't wear helmets want to be seen riding their shiny, expensive bikes.

It 's never been about safety or comfort. It's all about vanity.

Yep.

It was an old one and ready for replacement anyway.

I support an adult's right to choose. In SC, the law is that anyone under 21 has to wear one and 21 & over can decide for themselves.

I'm a helmet advocate, but not a helmet Nazi. I don't like a paternalistic .gov protecting me from myself.

I encourage helmet use, but if you're an adult citizen, well, I'm not your mother.

Unfortunately, we continue to pay insurance rates that are based on actuary tables.
Those tables are strongly influenced by prolonged care costs for non-fatal head trauma.

I am DNR and have private insurance in the case of my getting smashed up, I distrust the state sponsored insurance we are forced to buy. I also ride Saddle bronc but people rarely rag on me for that and I think it is just as dangerous...


overall it does not matter, I am over the age of majority and will do whatever i like with my body so long as it is legal
