    I know that folks like to ride without a helmet and that is a fine personal decision.

    So States that get rid of the helmet law then need to add a requirement for signing a No Emergency Medical Treatment To Repair Massive Head Trauma waiver.

    Why should everybody else have to "foot the bill" for an added "hundreds of thousands of dollars" to "repair your head?"

    Man up!....when you obviously don't care two bits about your own doggone head and brain...why should we care about your head when it dips into our respective pocketbooks in the form of higher/increased medical and insurance costs for everybody else?

    Up until this year I have been an active MSF (actually MSP in PA) instructor. My son was born a little over 2 years ago. Haven't ridden much since then.

    I still have my hog in the garage. Probably gonna sell it and get a dirt bike to scratch my itch.

    How come riders get into crashes with deer when riding on the road and we never hear of crashes with dirt bike riders riding in the woods?

    While that site does show the worst that can happen , I feel with proper gear and mindset you can ride safely enough to have fun and be safe as any other sport . I ride both dirt and street. the MSF course is great to learn the techniques and helped me become a much more confident , safer rider.
    Ride safe and always watch out for the other drivers.

    +1. That site scared the hell out of me, but I will still go home from work and jump on my Harley. Although I'll most likely ride a lot more defensively. I suppose that's the purpose of the website.

    i have seen this before and have been in a few hairy crashes, for one i thank the good lord and my gear because without both i know i wouldnt have made it out of my last one. but seeing what could happen on that site is no different then seeing gunshot trauma, but i would be willing to bet that seeing horrible gunshot wounds doesnt stop you from owning a gun, i know the difference in risk but its the same thing

    Always ride as though you're invisible (you are) and everybody is out to get you.

    Thanks for the link.....I forwarded it to all my biker buddys with the following message.


    "Howdy folks,

    I am NOT passing this on to try to dissuade you from riding your motorcycle.

    I, myself, have over a million miles on them.

    I do think that a little reality may rein in some of the riskier practices we all use due to complacency.

    In that spirit, I offer the following.........."


    Again, thanks for the link.

    When you are on a motorcycle there are two kinds of people - those that don't see you and those that want to kill you......

    Be safe

    I live in NH where there is no helmet law. MOST of the time I dont wear one. I have to say thank you to the OP though, That site reminded me of my own mortality. Those are really some graphic pictures and more than once while looking at them I recoiled and blurted something out loud. My dog really thinks im nuts....

    A guy that I went to high school with suffered a massive bike related head and neck injury about a decade ago.

    Real nice guy or at least he was. He will never be the same due to fairly extensive brain damage.

    I really like vegetables a lot but, not when they used to be my friends.

    He is two "baby steps" up from being mentally vegetative.

    He also cannot taste or smell anything...that's a weird brain damage thing...but, that is minor compared to his other coordination issues and his former personality is pretty much totally dead.

    It's ironic that probably some of the very same forum members that say "Always carry in a holster that covers the trigger & trigger guard!" will jump on a bike minus skull and brain protection and do 60 70 80 + MPH.

    You only have one head people and it's never a good outcome when you crack it like an eggshell because everything that makes you... "you" is sitting right inside that noggin.

    The body heals but, the human brain cannot take too severe of a beating.

    Just a word to the wise.

    But,...hey...if you can honestly look at yerself in the mirror and say that there is nothing in this world that you really care about and nobody is depending on you and you are a true "don't give a damn for nothin'" biker then knock yourself out and don't wear a helmet.

    QKShooter, You seem alittle up set at the post? He must have been a good friend.

    I try and play safe. I played safe on the water, kinda. Had a 750hp roller motor in a 17ft jet boat. I had it vertical once. We use to run it full bore. I asked my friend. If we whip out it's going to be bad. Whats the life vests for. He said to help find the bodies.

    With all due respect... Some of the most disturbing pictures on that site were of mangled bodies that were wearing all their gear. It did no good. I don't ride a bike as if I'm about to crash, just like I don't live life as if I'm about to die. If I did I'd never leave the house! When you shell out $20K or more for a bike you accept the risks. I live life. I don't fear it. If what you saw on that website causes you to never buy a motorcycle then you were never meant to ride. If a cager takes me out tomorrow my insurance will pay out almost $1M to my wife. (remind me to check my brake lines ) I have not disregarded the dangers, I have made preparations. I accept the risks (and my wife understands) and love every damn minute I'm on that bike. There are times in my life when riding is the only thing that makes life worth living. I'll lift my head up above the windshield and let the wind wash over my face like a golden retriever with it's head out the window of a car and life is good. My cares wash away, if only for a moment. Dare I say it here......... My Harley is more precious to me than my guns!

    Live to ride, ride to live!

    There, I've had my say... Please, have yours.

    Johnsonabq.......

    Well, ya got me thinking....My harley or My Guns. I'd really hate to have to decide, but my guns will preserve my life and my WAY of life, so I guess the Harley would have to go.

    You sure make it tough on a fella.

    Check out S and S Sales when ya get a chance!

    Of course I don't want to lose either my guns or my Harley. They are both very very important. My point was simply to express my passion for riding. Perhaps the comparison was a bit extreme.

    BTW, cool website.
