Too bad. I've decided that I no longer support helmet laws. I am sick and tired of you, through your government, telling me what I can and cannot do.

I'm for adults making their own decisions. I'm OK with laws saying children should be protected, because Lord knows there are enough incompetent parents, but adults should be able to take risks.

Should bicycle hemlets be required on adults bicyclists? It is the law in parts of Australia. While riding my bicycle this weekend, I had a nice chat with a motorcyclist. He pointed out that motorcyclists put on lots of protective grear, and bicycles live and die by glorified beer coolers. Bicycles go just as fast down twisty hills as many motorcycles do. Heck, my wife has past 2 motorcyclists on decents.

I hear this line about, "I don't want my tax dollars paying for...". Can anyone provide supporting information about how many brain damaged motorcyclists are on government support? I doubt it.

How about a little personal responsibility?

I'm also for mandatory safety training, so you can make an informed decision. AND, I'm a big believer in All the gear, all the time. I never ride with my gear. I just don't want to be told I have to.
