So, Blake and I went to a car dealership the other day to look at trucks right? Well, we saw this kid on a Aprilia 50 riding........and he was wearing his helmet...HALF WAY ON HIS HEAD! We were like WTF????? Blake kept saying "Look at the Aprilia 50!" And I kept saying, "Look at that :asshole wearing his helmet around his forehead!" :laughing :eek:

I see that crap around here also. Mostly on college types riding scooters but some bikers too. They look like they are refugees from the intelectually challenged classes.

Speaking of challenged, do we have spell check here?

Fortunately, CA has a helmet law, so I don't have to see that...but I bet it looks idiotic. If anyone has a pic of some moron wearing his helmet like this, please post it so I can have a good laugh.

Since when did CA re-enstate the helmet law? Or am I totally without a clue?

Ever since they obtained intelligence. States that don't have helmet laws are stupid.
You actually believe this??? You think being told what to do by the government is a good thing?? I bet you're gonna change your mind in a few years when ya can't even walk down the street without being required to wear full riot gear...

I personally always wore my helmet.. I did it for safety.. But.... I absolutely resented wearing it just because it was the law...

We get a lot of squids wearing helmets like that or the shiny nazi style helmets.


As for helmet laws, I feel people should have the choice, but I will never ride without one. If you want to spill your grey matter all over the pavemnet, I have no problem with it. Oh and I have seen plenty of this sort of stuff in the ER, and it doesnt really phase me too much although I hear it from the staff since I ride a "donor cycle" as they call it.

No, but I think it's worse to be forced to pay higher insurance because some idiot without a helmet gets killed. People who don't wear a helmet are selfish......they don't care about other riders having to pay higher insurance, and they don't care about the feelings of their loved ones if they get killed.
