Re: A Cops perspective....
Have to say, I'm not a big fan of helmets either. I wear one when required, but I ride many a mile to be able to throw that helmet in the saddle bag and enjoy the wind in my hair and bugs in my face, and salt, sand, rocks, whatever gets thrown in my face. Come to think of it, why do I like riding without a helmet? I don't know, can't explain it. We all die from something!
