Good news for those waiting for organ transplants - the supply of donors will be increasing.

Not all who wander are lost. Which still leaves room for more than a few lost wanderers...

Funny aint it, in the UK the compulsory wearing of helmets came in in the early 70's. A legendary figure called Fred Hill campaigned tirelessly against this law refusing to wear a helmet ever and refusing to pay the fines he regularly got. He recieved numerous prison sentences for not paying the fines the last of which was in 1984, sadly he passed away in prison standing up for our rights.

freds reason was never against wearing helmets per se, but being told you must wear one. MAG ( Motorcycle Action Group)of which Fred was a staunch member still campaigns for the voluntary wearing of helmets on the basis that its the thin end of the wedge and eventually Politicians will get their way "PROTECTING" us from ourselves by maybe even banning motorcycles eventually.

I dont think I could ever ride without a helmet even if I had the choice, but I salute those who stand up for the option.

God Bless you Fred.

I ride with a helmet, i dont have to in Maine, and I do not want to be told to by anyone besides my inner voice(or my wife ).

Until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death......just saying.......

I've had two "major" accidents in my 40 years of riding, and in each occurance, had I not had a helmet on by "MY" choice, I would not either have a face left or be alive to tell the tale. So I wear a helmet... regardless of what my wife wants.
