    Ok so I'm down in Idaho this weekend and I'm on the highway, and I see a motorcyclist pull by us (cruiser style) with no helmet. At first I was baffled by this, and then saw more, so by now I have figured out that they must not have to wear helmets. However I only saw cruiser style bikes with no helmets and the sport riders did wear helmets. :mfclap: Hate to say it, but who's smarter now! :nana

    So wearing a helmet makes you smarter?

    Gee, I don't know about that, but...

    not wearing one certainly does suggest one is pretty fucking stupid.

    Meh.

    It's a matter of personal choice in Idaho.

    Getting all dressed up like a Power Ranger in 95°+ heat seems kinda silly to some folk.

    I forgot to mention this was on I-84 in Boise with traffic. Speed limit was 65 and he must have been doing 10 over when he passed us. That is why I thought he was a dumbass!

    I never said it shouldn't be a personal choice. If somebody wants to live their life as a fucking dumbass, they should be free to do so.
     
  10. Welcome to outside of Washington state where most of the states do not have mandatory helmet laws for adults.

    If you travel the country a little bit you'll find just as many sportbikes without helmets as cruisers without.

    Ah, so you "thought". Therefore wearing a helmet does not make you smarter, or vice versa, it's just something you "thought". Ok I think I'm understanding.

    AZ has none either. When its 115+ out probably just as dangerous to wear one. Although I would probably try still.

    And if somebody wants to live their life judging others, they should be free to do so also!

    I do what I want!

    No. Being smart causes you to wear a helmet. See the difference there?
