The helmet law here in Michigan was repealed yesterday. While I believe that it should be the riders choice whether to wear a lid or not, I still think it's dumb not to wear one. I wear a full face 90% of the time, and I will continue to do so. I like my face and don't want to look like this guy. So to all of you freedom fighters out there, go out, be free, just be sure to sign your organ donor card. Seriously.
Oh, and have a look at this image showing where your head hits things when you get into an accident.
These numbers were from The Hurt Report done way back in 1981 and are why I personally wear a full face.
I hope this means we're a giant step closer to legalizing lane splitting, cuz that's something I'd take advantage of!
