    You know they just passed that law where you have to wear a seat belt..or they can now pull you over just for that reason.. but you don't have to wear a helmet on a motor cycle.. Is there something strange here or is it just me?

    Its not strange they are doing are have done that in quite a few states. As for helmets I am not touching that one, I wear one and don't mind it but I know a bunch of old school cats that would raise cain if they had mandatory helmet laws.

    If there was a major helmet manufacturer in your state they would probably make it a law to wear one.

    Get this: Don't remember where, but a guy was cited for not wearing a helmet. When the case went to court the judge threw it out. Seems the law,as written, said a helmet would be worn at all times. It didn't say " on the head".The biker was wearing it on his knee. :big_smile_2:
