a freind of our family was in a motor cycle accident in colorado, they have no helmet laws there. a truck ran a red lgiht and hit him. he flew 20 feet and smacked his head on the pavement. he was in a coma for like a month and died 3 times.
only thing injured in the accedent was his head, he didnt break any bones or anything just got some scraped and brusis
so dont buy a el cheapo 50 dollar helmet get a quality one cuz it is your head
i suggest bell full face helmets dot and snell 2000 approved
