Hey, I rode a 50cc Yamaha Moped for a lot of years without a helmet. Got the scars on my body to prove that I laid it down a number of times. And when I was kid I rode bike without a helmet. I would probably ride without a helmet but my mom, who I try to keep happy even when I am 34, was a Neuro intensive care nurse in San Francisco and dad was a doctor so I try to keep mom happy. Not a big deal to me either way. I don't have a deficits in my peripheral vision with a full face helmet. I may change my position come summer. I have been off of motorcycles for a few years. I will have to see but I have a helmet in case that is the way I choose to go.
Thealien I didn't know that about kids and bicycles. Hell, my friend was showing off to his kids on his mountain bike and he went over the handle bars and broke his arm. I still give him sh*t about that.
Anyway, like your sig says "Ride like you're invisible."
