My state does not have a helmet law either, and most riders do not wear helmets, the exceptions being some crotch rocket riders, who wear expensive racer replica helmets, because they think it makes them look cool, and guys like me, who would much rather be laughed at than dead, or worse. For the record, I do not support helmet laws, seatbelt laws, or any other law designed to protect people from themselves. Probably has something to do with that "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" thing. But I do support helmet use. Peace. Jerry.
