There are many people throughout the world that don’t like the feeling of riding a motorcycle with a helmet and I get it. There is nothing like the feeling of hitting the road without a helmet and feeling ultra close and almost like your one with your surroundings and the world is your oyster, but going with head protection is a very dangerous proposition.

helmet laws are in place to protect people from themselves. Most people who ride know that the helmet can help save their lives in the event of an accident, however sometimes the overwhelming thought of I’m just going around the corner can override the common sense factor.

There are several laws throughout the USA about helmet laws.Some states have 100% helmet laws, while other states have helmet laws for people under the age of 18.There are also other little technicalities among the states.

There is a nice website that has the helmet laws listed for easy reading. gsha.org has all the helmet laws listed.

Bikers have been called rebels,nomads,gangsters,thugs and to many others to mention and the love affair some riders have with their machines can make it irresistible to go out on a quick ride without a helmet.

With all the traffic on the roads today and the drivers who think they own the road and all the road rage, wearing a helmet is one way to show the general public that you do have a brain in your head.
