What...are they trying to pass a helmet law? I just moved to KY and wear my Arai religiously. I'd say 90% of the cruiser riders don't wear a helmet here.

EDIT: Here's some info I dredged up on Google.

Looks like the law will go into effect July 15th.



Legal counsel for the Kentucky State Police say that the only people eligible to ride without a helmet are Kentucky residents over the age of 21, who have more than one year's riding experience -- and who have shown proof of health insurance and obtained a helmet-use exemption sticker to display on their license plate.

I would wear my helment even if Alabama did not have a Law for one. It is just plain common sense, and safety.
Sincerely,
David

Why are there seat belt laws but no Helmet laws?
Doesn't make much sence to me, I don't leave my driveway with out my Bell helmet on.

Nothing to be worried about here, we are all civil, unlike the huge NRA supporter I work with, he could care less about motorcycles, and of course all motorcyclists are idiots and they should all have to be armored to the hilt since he is forced to wear a seatbelt, it's kinda funny to hear him crying about our new President lately, how his guns are going to be taken away, this is one of these types where you can't talk to about these things because he is always right and that is that. It's funny how some feel thier rights are important and your silly little "rights" aren't. Some states give you freedom to choose(referring to helmet laws), some don't, I live in a state that gives me that freedom, thank goodness. A man named Paul Tillich once said "Decision is a risk rooted in the courage of being free." someone sent me that in an email a while back, I have seen many quotes from many "directions", but I really like that one.:waving:

I have my helment and I wear it religously everywhere I go, and for anyone who does not, they are playing with fire, in my book anyway. It does not take much of a head bump to get you killed.
