Helmets (also known as brain buckets) are optional in some states. Some prefer to ride without a helmet. For some, to ride is to be free--free from restrictions like a helmet. But most people consider that attitude irresponsible.

My brother rides a vintage Honda Goldwing and a lot of his friends are the Harley/Japanese Cruiser crowd. Sometimes my brother rides without a leather jacket (which I harass him about), but he always wears a helmet. The ridiculous thing is that a lot of his Harley friends give him a hard time about not wearing leather when they never even ride with a helmet. I don't really understand the "Harley Costume" of full leathers and no helmet.

Exclamation

I am of a certain vintage that remembers life before compulsory crash helmets. Whilst I would always wear one now, I recall that the freedom (for wont of a better term) of riding without a helmet was quite exilarating, It is clear that you can have a serious accident at low speed (less than 30 mph)but I would personally like to see compulsory helmet wearing (in 30 mph limit areas) repealed, but in the UK it will never happen.

riding without a helmet is stupid.you can t see shit over a certain speed your face will be full of flies rocks sand and mosquitos in no time.this association between motorcycles and freedom is a bit of a clichee perpetuated by yuppies who saw easy rider and like to play it cool with their office buddies.that s why the custom market grew so much in the us and the world.because they all want to ride a quarter mile into town on these ridiculous machines..looking cool..like a monkey on a bicycle

Pretty much sums up my feelings. I've been riding for over 25 years and never have and never will get the whole Harley/no helmet lots of leather thing. From the no helmets, to the leather costums, to the crap bikes and the "I'm too cool" attitude. These 'motorcycles' are everywhere in my area on weekends. You can tell a mile away that 99% of these guys are not very skilled or experienced just by watching them ride. They also clog up some of our best roads with their 35 mph du-rag parades while the rest of the motoring world is stuck behind them (cars anyway). All dressed up with no helmets on..........and nowhere to go. Friggin' poseurs.
