I try to imagine having sex with a helmet on my head and it just doesn't work for me. Now there are times to wear protection, no doubt about it.
I have been riding for 45 years and have been down once. Of all the times I have put on the helmet, take off the helmet to go into the bank, put the helmet back on to go to the post office, get there, take off the helmet......
I BELIEVE IN CHOICE AND THE STATE OF WASHINGTON TAKES THAT AWAY FROM ME, but allows kids to skateboard without wrist supports or helmets, has legal pot, provides safe places for heroin users to shoot up, provides free medical services for crap faced drunks and the list goes on and on.
The motorcycle community should be united on CHOICE. No one is taking your choice away. If you choose to ware a helmet, that is choice. Why is it if you live in a "helmet free" state and you decide to travel across the US, that you have to drag a helmet along so that you can wear one in the states that require them?
When you ride to South Dakota for Nassir, take a look around at the riders in Sioux Falls and you will see hundreds of motorcyclists riding without helmets. You will have to look and ride all day to see one hand full of riders wearing helmets.
Washington State requires a helmet. Once I leave the state heading to South Dakota, I could leave mine at the state line and pick it up on my way back home. Perhaps I will drop by a bowling alley and put that plastic piece of crap there for a week. (matching Nolans with built in audio)
My post does not take aim at anyone who chooses to wear theirs. I object to being told I have to wear one here. Yes, I have made my opinion known in Olympia.
Please tell me how much your insurance rates will go up if I don't wear my helmet and I will tell you how I really feel.
