    Default To wear or not to wear?

    Helmet law may get repealed. So, where do you stand? Me, I'll still wear, but I have to admit there may times when I don't want to. Like, if I'm going somewhere in town, traffic is pretty slow around here. Maybe way up north on the west end of the UP, cruising around State or National Parks.

    What about you?

    I'll wear it no matter what. I may do it once to see how it feels.

    I wear it always. Have ridden in PA without it a couple times to see what it feels like and I feel naked.
    I prefer peace. But if trouble must come, let it come in my time, so that my children can live in peace.

    I've tried it in Ohio. Last time I did, I was riding somebody else's chopper thru some corn fields in ohio at 2am.. no helmet. The guy is like 6'5" and I could barely reach his forward controls (4" forward extensions). Thinking to myself, this is how I'm going to die, some animal is going to come out of this field and make me wreck... I'm not going too fast but enough for me to die if I bounce my unprotected/unhelmeted head on the concrete. That was enough for me. I simply couldn't enjoy it for what it was worth.

    I wouldnt mind riding with no helmet only in a controlled area at very low speeds like in state parks or what not, but 99.9% of the time I'm always going to have that helmet on to protect myself.

    Stuck in traffic on a hot day? It's coming off. Of course, the helmet law didn't stop me from doing that before, it only made it illegal.
    You might be like, I'm confused, what's the attraction?
    But some dudes just love to lose traction.

    Like any club that has grown too large, [motorcycling] has become mired in vacuous debates and split into a thousand splinter factions. Older riders hate squids; cruisers hate sport riders; Harley riders hate everyone, including themselves.

    Its all about rider choice. I ride to Ohio Just for the freedom. Michigan is a nanny state. The actual bill with the 20k insurance stuck to it is a crappy bill. Has anyone priced out what it will cost you for an additional 20k liability insurance? Its not cheap. This bill is similar to Florida. The shame of it all is that sevaral years ago ABATE had a nice clean bill go through the House and Senate only to be vetoed by the wicked witch herself .... The Mole.
    Same crap different day in Michigan.
