    Question for those who ride with no helmet

    How the hell do you do it? Tonight I was riding up 1a on the beach here in New Hampshire just after sunset, and I must have had about 374 bugs smash on my face shield. I passed about 8 bikers going in the other direction with no helmets, and basically no other gear. Just the thought of having a dragonfly, or any other kind of bug hit me in the middle of my forehead at 50 mph scares me, since one left an inch long smear on my faceshield tonight. Of course here in NH it's "live free or die", so no helmets is a common occurance for motorcyclists, and I just want to all of them. But its their right, so I guess shorts tank top and sandals, and a sox hat is proper riding wear???

    Question for those who ride with no helmet

    most riders that ride without a helmet, ride a little slower and not so much after dusk, wind noise is not as bad if you slow down, bug don't hit so hard

    you guys are pussies

    riding with a helmet is like wearing a condom

    What if it was one of those ultra-thin kind?

    Not as bad as a windshield...ask Ben Toothlessburger.

    I couldn't ride w/o a helmet either. Hey, I'm all for giving people the choice, even if's a stupid choice.

    Well I gotta fit in, so I'm going to go cover my Shoei with spermicide and KY.

    Damn you people and your anti-helmetic comments.

    It's because of people like you that I still ride around without a helmet on from time to time. I understand the risks and I realize the danger I put myself in, but I don't care. I do it just to piss you people off. You're all a bunch of fucking assholes. You know why? Because you don't have the guts to be what you want to be. You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your fucking fingers, and say "that's the bad guy." So, what's that make you? Good? You're not good. You just know how to wear a helmet... how to sweat beneath a leather jacket on a hot summer's day. Me, I don't have that problem. I do whatever I want to do, even if it's bad for me. So say goodnight to the bad guy.

    btw, you haven't lived till you've rocketed down a sidewalk in shorts, t-shirt, flip-flops & no helmet on the back of your own bike with Manda Pants at the controls.



    We only hit 7 babies and 3 old ladies... miraculously they all survived.

    Oh, I don't wear those either.

    By the by, if you wear the ribbed ones inside out and that is a pleasureful experience for you, I would seek help.

    I don't know, but it's bugging the fuck out of me too.

    I just put a portion of the quote in a google search and I ended up with Internet Fruitcake Peter Pan's Pixey Land dot org.


    Edit: Aha! It's Tony Montana from Scarface. Here's the full:

    "Whattaya lookin' at? You're all a bunch of fucking assholes. You know why? 'Cause you don't have the guts to be what you wanna be. You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your fucking fingers, and say "that's the bad guy." So, what dat make you? Good? You're not good; you just know how to hide. Howda lie. Me, I don't have that problem. Me, I always tell the truth--even when I lie. So say goodnight to the bad guy. Come on; the last time you gonna see a bad guy like this, let me tell ya. Come on, make way for the bad guy. There's a bad guy comin' through; you better get outta his way!"

    It's from when he explodes at his wife in the high end restaurant.

    I got VT. RT. 100 off my helmet last year, and I wonder how that would have felt!
    I had ridden up the strip at the beach without my lid before, nothing fast enough to have any insects bother me, but even before I hit the pavement I had decided the helmet was staying on. I don't get all worked up about it, can't understand why people ride without lids, but that's their choice and since I don't like most of them anyway I'm OK with it. It just stinks that one day many of them may learn the hard way.

    Question for those who ride with no helmet

    This past weekend I got a big dragonfly hit me on my shield right in front of my left eye.

    First thing that crossed my mind is "how can hardley riders take this crap in the face?"

    I don't care if they only ride 40 mph, that crap really hurts!

    The other thing that struck me this past weekend is the amount of riders that were not even wearing gloves ... <shudder> let alone no helmet.

    Am I genetically deficient with regards to an invincibility gene?
