    The irony here is I don't necessarily disagree with you.

    You are just such a dick that it's hard to be on your side.

    I feel the same way when I read threads. People taking joy in riders getting killed if they don't have helmet on, or just various insults.

    I came back the day this passed, cause I knew there would lots of folks frothing and pooping in their pants, about this.


    One interesting thing, next year, and more accurately over the next few years, we can have an intelligent discussion about helmets, when we compare statics from this year to next. As opposed to people trying to compare different states.

    Though last 2-3 winters have been mild, so unfortunately I am expecting more deer accidents, and more to shoot. Deer, not riders.

    Well ok ... a helmet won't necessarily stop a fatality... and neither will a helmet always prevent an ABI ... but an ABI does not necessarily stop this >>> :viking

    I don't need the government telling me what to do. Also I am not one of these guys who are going to say I don't care if they die. This isn't all that different then eating fast food, smoking, drinking, unsafe sex, or alot of sports that put you in harms way.

    Should we ban mountain climbing or 3/4s of the menu at ________? Make it illegal to fuck without a condom if you are not married?

    I think we need to ban these little bikes that are hard to see, and dangerous. In seriousness, I have talked to a few people that have moved up to bikes with fairings and passing lamps, and they believe people see them better.

    Saw a BMW rider in MI, with a beane helmet. Not sure the point. Maybe he was trying to protect his air, or more likely bald. This wasn't even a regular 1/2 helmet.

    I still see a few skid lids around and wonder what's the point?
