I live in West Virginia and we have a helmet law here, so I wear a lid, but under protest. I feel we should have the right to choose and if we choose not to wear a lid, we should at least have enough insurance to where the states should not have to pick up the bill. Pretty damm simple to me, but our illustrious politicians cannot do anything that is simple and makes sense!
yes,lidless . i am responsible as in i have coverage so no state picks up my bill IF>>>. it is my right to choose how i ride.however. i have a couple of times donned a unofficial lid due to respect of others that were paranoid of the attention in areas of heavy survience. and.. i have also split and met up later when the riding was just to good to lid it. and others were nervous.
F*#k the helmet law. I have a skin lid and wish NJ didnt have a helmet law. I go to PA a lot and leave the lid at a bar I know till I return to NJ. No I dont get drunk and ride but a beer sure does hit the spot. Choice and Freedom is our country belief yet were told how to do everything. Cops that give the tickets are the same ones without a vest on yet they get shot at. Figure that at, if I were a cop I would wesr a vest.
I always have a helmet on, full coverage. It may not help but It's my choice. I don't feel there needs to be a law for it. I worked 5 years on a rescue squad. Had all to many times picking up riders on the interstate. It may not help but you do have a better chance. Worst one we pulled the bike out from under the front of an 18 wheeler, the biker though he could cut a semi off, bad choice. The way you ride will make the most effect on if you are safe.
