For motorcycle riders across the United States, as well as other countries around the world, you must be concerned with the safety aspect of riding a bike, as well as knowing the local rules of wherever you live, and whether or not your state (or country if outside the United States) requires you, the motorcyclist, to wear a helmet while riding.
Many riders tend not to want to wear a helmet when riding. However, this is the only way one can be safe when riding a motorcycle, which unlike a car, if you get into an accident can cause much more damage to the neck and head. Whether it is because of image which the “bikers” have maintained or because of comfort, many riders don’t want to wear helmets when riding.
However, before buying a bike, and deciding not to wear a helmet on the road, make sure that you find out the laws in your state. You can get hefty fines for not wearing a helmet if required by your jurisdiction. Also many insurance companies will drop riders from thier policy if they fail to comply with the state’s rules, and in some cases, the insurance companies requirement for helmets to be worn.What’s 1 more click?
