No matter what your state motorcycle laws dictate, we urge you to wear a helmet — preferably a full-face model — whenever you ride.
Because wearing a helmet significantly lowers your risk of serious injury. Don’t believe us?
- Decrease risk of fatal injury by 29%
- Decrease risk of brain trauma by 67%
Those are significant numbers. For a real-life case study, look at the state of Florida. In the year 2000, the state repealed its helmet law. For riders over the age of 21, a helmet is not required as long as you have a minimum of $10,000 worth of health insurance. Florida motorcycle insurance is not mandatory. Since the repeal of this law, motorcycle-related deaths have increased more than 80% in Florida.
