    GET A FUCKING LIFE
    Or, the people in the picture were riding in MA, where there is a helmet law, without a helmet on the passenger. Don't think anyone has turned this into whether or not she should be wearing one as a gear nazi more as a point of law.

    Re: What Is Wrong With this Picture?

    There are several examples of at least borderline gear nazi-ism and general judgement going on here.

    Not that I think that is a bad thing. One of my favorite things about most NESR'ians I've met is they are either borderline or full on gear nazis. Peer pressure is a helluva thing. Therefore gear nazi-ism is a trait I value in a peer.

    Last week I saw a woman (overweight, mid-forties) riding a big cruiser on Route 3 southbound, just a few miles north of the I-95(RT128)/RT3 interchange....no helmet. You don't often see them that far south of the NH border or north of the RI/CT one.

    Of all Nazis, I like Gear Nazi's the best. or
    Some of my best friends are Gear Nazis. or
    I served with Gear Nazis, I knew Gear Nazis, Gear Nazis were a friend of mine. You Sir, are no Gear Nazi.

    Sorry, I'm bored. Can anyone ID that last paraphrase?

    Wait a minute, that could be interpreted the wrong way. What I meant is "someone about my age".

    Yes, same age +1.

    Quayle was just a nitwit.

    What crawled up your ass?

    It isn't about gear nazis or choice or laws, it's about seeing something really unusual (no helmet in Mass.) and having it stop you in your tracks because you're not sure you saw what you think you just saw.

    I highly doubt that the girl in this picture is making a purposeful statement about helmet laws.

    Slow your roll there, tiger.

    Re: What Is Wrong With this Picture?

    1. I still can't see said pics

    2. I've seen people do the same in VT. 98% of the time they cross into VT and then stop to put the lid on (too late, already broke the helmet law numb nuts)(but you know, riding that extra couple hundred feet means a lot to the no helmet crew). And 1% of the time I see someone well across the border, cranking along, completely clueless. The last 1% of the time are the fools on scooters, who apparently missed the fact that scooters are included as "motorcycles", thus riders are required to wear helmets in VT.

    I wear full gear, but I also respect the bike & the road.

    Ever wonder why we don't wave back?

    GET A FUCKING LIFE
    Why is it you respect the rider who doesn't wear gear and lid up his pillion but don't respect another that voices his opinion that he is not making a smart move The op disagrees with the "personal values" of the rider and you disagree with his, so maybe you should "get a fucking life"

    +1. Also, if the day comes that I absolutely have to ride the bike with my wife and we only have 1 helmet you can bet your ass she'll be wearing it, not me.

    I respect all riders regardless of choice

    what I don't respect is people making judgements about other peoples choices that they have no business in, and it has nothing to do with riding or motorcycles

    worry about your own life
