At one point here 'they' were pushing hard for a law for motorcycle helmet and the ER kept stats for a while. Basically came down to that ofter 30 mph the rider with the helmet was more 'viewable' at the funeral. Personally, i wore the helmet to keep the bugs from messing the $1,000,ooo, smile. Do not smoke, do not do drugs, do not have any fun. Where would this country be if we all 'followed the rules'. But back to the post, the older we are the wiser we SHOULD be and be willing to train the next bunch.
