I have got some really good ideas, bear with me it goes on a bit. Lets all:

Wear helmets at all times whether riding a motorcycle, riding a pushbike or walking the dog as we could slip over at any time and bang our heads. Maybe we should have to wear them in the car as well. The problem with this though is that all our baseball caps and beenie hats would need to be bigger to fit over our helmets so we could still look cool

Wear hi-viz jackets at all times whether we are riding a bike or waliking the dog so that we can be seen by people that are not looking for us

I slipped over the other day whilst out and I was only wearing my trainers, my ankle had no protection so maybe we shaould all wear the type of boots that off road motorcyce riders wear because then we couldn't twist our ankles. The problem with that though is that we would stand more chance of twisting our knees, oh no forget this as it is heading towards being suspended in water with a fully armoured unmovable body suit on and then we could end up drowning. Bad bad idea that one

We should also maybe all wear gloves all the time as well because when our full body armoured suit that we are wearing that has probably been brought into force by the law makers to protect us from ourselves, to stop any twist and turns of joints on dodgy unrepaired pavements and we fall over, it would be a shame to get grazes on our hands when we put them out to help brake the fall wouldn't it.do

Aha that last one gives me an idea. Maybe we should go to the scrap yard and pull out all the airbags out of old cars and ask Alfie and Dave to some modifications in there sheds so that we don't need the full body armoured suits on and we could wear Alfie and Dave modified airbag suits with the suzuki800 logo on designed by Marcin.

Oh no this is not such a good idea as what happens if Alfie, Dave or Marcin get a headache whilst thinking about the required modification or design that not only protects us but also looks good and the headache tablets are in a child friendly tub that adults can't get into.

Oh no this is all starting to worry me to much now, so I will stop worrying about it in the full knoweledge that someone at the government will worry for me, so that they can justify there rediculous civil servant wages and pension that I have to pay for while struggling to get by on shit wages and eventually a shit state pension. Well thats if they don't keep moving the pension age away from me so that I never reach it so they can still retire at a much younger age than the guys that have really worked hard for a living while they have never had a blister in there whole lives. but hey thats ok and I should be greatful as after all, I am being protected from myself in all aspects of my life.

When I was a callow youth (don't know what it means, but youths are often called callow) In the days of my first bike (here we go again) which coincided with black & white tv and steam engines there was no obligation to wear a helmet, so I NEVER did. A few pals ended up in hospital, but in those days accidents seemed to only happen to other people. So I'd vote yes,or is it no, I've forgotten. Trouble is, I've tried to vote but it's beyond me. Bloody technology. Never had all this technology when I was a boy, in fact technology at my school meant woodwork. At least there was no EU to screw our lives up.

Texas does not have a helmet law but it has a seat belt law. As a Conservative who believes in personal choice and personal responsibility,I think you should wear a helmet and wear a seat belt. But i also think that if i choose not to I have that choice and have to be willing to except the consequences if it turns out to be a bad decision. If I am going to ride on the Interstate I wear my helmet. if i am on a short trip to Walmart. I sometime do and some time don't. I live in the part of Texas where you can see as far as the horizon will allow. I can see the next town from me and it is 20 miles away. My town is a town of about 20 thousand. Midland and Odessa Texas is 40 and 60 miles away and our major shopping area. There isn't enough bad-ass's in Texas to put me on a Cycle in Midland/Odessa Texas without a helmet. I would wear steel armor if I had it. CARS should have Roll cages. I is terrible. Well that's my remark from Dave the ProudTexson

Some bikers may see not wearing a helmet as dangerous as some car drivers see riding a motorcycle, so are we not moving the goalposts to suit ourselves or our own personal perspective?

Some cars are perhaps safer than others - curtains, impact crush rating etc. At the other end of the scale, a pushbike is arguably the most dangerous form of road transport. Motorcycle with/without ABS? Traction control? I actually think the widest margin of safety on a motorcycle is the way we ride. If I rode without a helmet I'd probably ride very carefully and may in fact fare better than if I wore a lid and did not!

As aside here, I wonder if any members would drive a car without a safety belt if they were allowed? I drove for a while without one. When the law came in, the early belts were non-inertia and there were cases of people being seriously injured as a result. I don't remember being unduly worried driving without a belt as a young chap but then I was lucky I did not have a smash. I doubt I would feel secure at all beltless now except in car parks etc. Aren't some groups of professional drivers exempt from compulsory driving with safety belts?

Well, at least most of us on this site are in the right category of bike to at least help reduce the risk...

Type of Motorcycle
Deaths per 10,000 Registered Motorcycles..................

Cruiser
5.7

Touring
6.5

Sport
10.7

Supersport
22.5

Must admit, would have liked the option to wear helmet or not, but wouldn’t feel comfortable going any faster that say 30-40. Would probably feel vulnerable, just like I would driving my car now without the belt on.

Found this....is from USA, but probably similar in uk....(glad I'm getting on to be a sensible "old git")

(ED = emergency department)

The highest death and injury rates were among 20-24 year-olds, followed by 25-29 year-olds.
More than half of all nonfatal injuries treated in EDs were to the leg/foot (30%) or head/neck (22%).
Motorcyclist death rates increased 55% from 2001 to 2008 (1.12 per 100,000 persons in 2001 to 1.74 per 100,000 persons in 2008).
The number of nonfatal motorcyclist injuries that were treated in EDs also increased, from nearly 120,000 injuries in 2001 to about 175,000 in 2008.
With more people in the United States riding motorcycles today than ever before, motorcyclist deaths and injuries are an important public health concern.


Think I"ll keep my helmet on.

We don't have helmet laws in my state. I NEVER wear a helmet in state. Hate them. When I go out of state I have an ultralight lowprofile half height novelty helmet that looks like a real helmet but isn't. I just slapped a DOT sticker on the back and the cops leave me alone.

I would wear a helmet whether I had too or not.  In my time on the roads I've seen way to many accidents to take an unnecessary risk.  It's just too easy to sustain life threatening head injuries from a minor accident and a helmet goes a long way to mitigate that risk.  I'm even a little nervous about wearing my open face helmet even though I prefer it in the summer to my full face helmet.

When I lived in Florida, there was no helmet law. Majority of the time I still wore my helmet. If I drove on base, then I had to wear my helmet, boots, long sleeves (reflective at night), and gloves. However there were times that I did not wear my helmet, but I was conscious of that and didn't do stupid shite. I moved to California (not my choice) and they say I have to wear a helmet no matter what. I could see if I could potentially harm someone else by not wearing a helmet, but the only person that it affects is the person that decided to not wear a helmet, ME!

I'd take issue with that last point Dan. You're right in as much as you are the only person physically affected. However, we all have family or friends that would be affected and what about the medics and police who have to deal with the mess of our making. I'm all in favour of free choice in these matters and defend your right to have the choice but please don't reduce this to an argument that you are the only person it affects. You are a firefighter from what I see of your profile. You and your colleagues no doubt have to deal with the consequences of other people's poor decisions. I have no doubt you have seen firsthand the affects such situations have had on your colleagues. The helmet thing has the same consequences for others and probably even your colleagues. You would not be the only victim if you came a cropper as a result of not wearing a helmet

You bring up a very good point Ian. Physically, it's only the rider affected, but if something were to happen then yes, it does take a mental and physical toll on friends, family, responders, among others.
I have seen helmets save lives on numerous motorcycle accidents, and seen people that could've possibly lived had they worn a helmet. While certainly not all the time, most of the people that I've come across that have had fatal accidents not wearing a helmet were doing something idiotic (150mph+ wearing just shorts, tank top, and flip flops).
My main issue is that the choice of what we do with our lives in supposed free countries is taken away from us. Is it good practice to wear helmets, use seatbelts, drive cars with airbags, etc? Of course. But it should be our decision. Heck, I've yet to drive a single fire truck with air bags in my 10 years of driving them...

Not sure about how or where those figures came from but it does seem to make some sense. Most cruiser riders seem to have a very relaxed riding style and are never in much of a rush. So in turn would take less risks and see the idiots well before the idiots don't see them.

PostSubject: Re: The Helmet Vote    Fri Oct 11, 2013 4:48 pm

I was just looking at my open face helmet which is for 9 months at least of the year my chosen helmet. The condition of this got me thinking about what has always been my stance on our UK enforced helmet laws that have been in-place since the 1970's.
After my recent Accident in which I very nearly died and suffered many other injuries including some major damage to the head I now think the following: If I now had a choice as to not wearing one I would have no different opinion to what had always been my opinion. I would happily then & still now wear a helmet on certain roads and at above certain speeds but would opt out at low speeds such as popping to my local shop. However if I was actually given the choice I may end up with a more relaxed attitude after a time & I respect that possibility. Although I am one that would for some of the time not wear one, thanks to the enforced helmet laws I am still able to write this here.
So with retrospect I know that the Law that I have always slightly disagreed with and still have a slight disagreement with has saved my life and saved the misery that would have been forced on my family. With this in mind I know that I would at least for some of the time still not wear one and give thanks that this Law is enforced and that the choice is not mine.

Well said Dave. We don't have helmet law. In the past I was the same way. Local I might not wear one. I have to say since your accident I always wear one now.
 I have a marker where my first wife is buried. it has my name on it. also has my beginning date. I am in no hurry to add the ending date.

Interesting stuff, Even though I'm of the same mindset as Mr I with regards to wearing a helmet on short trips to the shop say, It's for my own safety that these laws have been put into place and one I uphold every time I ride the bike, I wonder what the fatality rate above would look like if it wasn't compulsory?

I always wore a helmet in the early days even when we had a choice.
I'm also a road cyclist, in which case we have a choice, but I prefer to wear one, I fully understand that people like the right to choose, and there are pages and pages on the cycling forums about the subject, 
But sometimes we need saving from ourselves.

If it was not compulsory the death rate would be terrible, as only one single death is to many. How ever sad that would undoubtedly be for the biker it would be much sadder for the families left behind. However additional consideration must be given to the ex-bikers that we would be living with irreversible brain damage. I have seen men that have suffered various degrees of brain damage whilst going through my treatment & recovery that are horribly affected after crashes & what I think while attending these places is "there by the grace of god go I".

Like Tex, your accident Dave has had an effect on me too, no doubt others on here as well. The very next day after we heard I put the pads back in my jacket that I had just taken out. Shouldn't make a difference - but it does when it's someone close. Bug or stone hit hard when I had my full face helmet on yesterday. I usually wear the open on the cruiser but went on the M4 so got my chin covered. I think that might have hurt with just my thin neck tube. Still prefer the cool look mind 8) .
