don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of riders choice! if a rider chooses not to wear a helmet them so be it. I don't feel that the gov. should say if we need to or not. it's riders choice! but there is nothing wrong with wearing one.

if it goes vroom or boom, I LIKE IT!

actually I got one mof those three snap visor that flip up for my 3/4 open face and I also have a new Halfie from scorpion I bought earlier this year,and another old halfie I like because it's light.I actually have ridden very little without a helmet this year after seeing a buddy of mine with severe head trauma from a logging accident and he isn't over it yet.He only had a laceration of less than an inch,and was in ICU for 2 weeks,Kinda got my attention.
