    a year or two ago I had a bug hit my face shield head on . I have no idea what type of bug it was but I am sure it was a direct descendant of a teradactyl it smeared half way around my helmet . even eliminating the safety aspect of it , that is reason enough lol to wear

    When I lived in Florida I got a couple Palmetto bugs to the face. Gigantic, hard-shelled flying insects. The ichor from one could easily blind you.
    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.

    The only car I've had in the category of "Ancient Econohatch" was a Plymouth Horizon set-up for rally. Not quite a rock-crawler Yugo, but pretty awful nonetheless

    I know I'll never convince the Internet but I don't think helmets are as great as people think they are. I wear them to prevent road rash on my head and I never consider a motorcycle ride 'safe.'
    I can agree with BOLD very much so.

    I will ask the parents here. Do you make your kid wear a helmet on a bicycle? What about a small dirt bike, ATV, or go-cart?
