It's amazing. We started this thread talking about the best engine size for a bike and cocked all the way around to personal liberty. The really amazing thing is not one person is surprised by this fact.

I imagine you're in the crowd that would make helmets mandatory, and yet you preach constitutional freedom on here.

Force NEVER results in willing compliance!

This is only a 2 mile commute, each way, and the speed limit does not exceed 25 mph. For this I typically will just go with my half helmet (DOT rated), some sunglasses, long pants, a shirt (usually short sleeve), gloves and what ever shoes I'm wearing that day (always closed, but usually below my ankle). For faster rides I add a jacket, full face helmet (both DOT and SNELL rated), and boots. I keep a full set of those 3 items both at home and in the office.
I believe everyone SHOULD wear a helmet, but do not believe anyone should be REQUIRED to wear a helmet.

Had it reinforced today why I don't ride a motorbike: Provo Center Street and University Avenue intersection (THE center of town) firetruck, ambulance, 3 or 4 cop cars, and a downed bike. Apparently someone turned in front of him. No idea how bad it is. Sure hope the rider is ok.
