IŽll basically agree with that. In my country, helmet is actually the only protective gear required by law.

That would mean, that you could ride without a helmet, but if you get a head injury, you pay the expenses of that yourself, because your own lack of judgment has made the situation like this (either partially, or completely).

Fair play for everyone, and even better, the right to choose is still there. DonŽt get it, why such utter stupidity should be treated the same way as those cases, where riders have actually taken the effort to protect themselves. Its already listed on every insurance policy, that IŽve ever had, that you, on your part, must have done everything in your power, to avoid an accident, and also limit its consequences.
