Protection Needed

Too many times, I see motorcyclists on the road with no helmets. The common reason the riders give is they don't want to mess up their hair. I suppose a messed up face after a crash is better. I'm not sure why the disdain for helmets when there are stylish ones out there, like bell helmets. I've even seen my own father riding around without a helmet on. Please, I would like you all to keep riding the motorcycles you love. Just do it with a helmet on.

That reminds me of a story I read a month or so ago about a biker at a rally to protest a law making it illegal to ride without a helmet. He ended up crashing during the rally and died. Officials said he probably would have survived if he'd been wearing a helmet. So sad.
