Just got back from Manhattan. Saw my 1st rider down this season, a Vulcan. Only about 45 degrees today. He was already down being attended to by EMS and police. It looked like someone was backing out and the biker paniced and ended up on the other side of the road.

His riding gear. A flannel shirt, jeans, and no F'N helmet!!

Probably had one of those little bowls sitting on his head not even strapped on...sure it flew off in the accident.

Amazing the police don't enforce the REAL helmet laws....the one that requires a DOT helmet...might keep some of these idiot Harley riders out of the hospital and out of our wallets.

I was out all this weekend, got a good 13 hours in. Just about everyone else had the same idea. I bet you, I saw three other riders wearing helmets, out of 60. And one was my buddy I was riding with. It was horrible..

I really can't understand why Americans in particular seem to love going without their lids.

Here it's so rare that I've never seen it on the road, just at walking pace in car-parks, and on perimeter tracks at race circuits.
there's only a handful who do it and are public about it, and do it in defiance of the law to try and say it's their choice but nearly everyone thinks they're nuts and want nothing to do with them.

more's the point, if a copper spots you without a lid it's an instant pull, fine and possible court appearance.


seriously ingrained into the mentality to wear a lid at all times of motion on 2 wheels...

Thing is in 45 degree weather..how on earth can no one wear a lid while riding a motorcycle? The cold alone would freeze your brain!

When it comes summer time down here and I ride, I have people (cagers) ask at a stop light..."aren't you hot in that helmet and leather jacket?" I tell them only at stop lights for a few minutes then I am fine, sweat washes off but road rash doesn't :D
