We have seatbelt laws for our cars & trucks (and YES, I wear my seatbelt!), so why do we not require helmets for motorcyle riders? Helmets wouldn't save every rider (just as seatbelts don't always save lives), but he would have had a better chance of surviving!!!

Jerry,
This guy is a neanderthal! Could almost make me believe in Darwin's theory.. He only seems to know 4 words other than his logic and his reason. Guess he thinks it is cute because he rhymes and he gets to ignore the fact that a man is dead and his friends/family are hurting. I am not a motorcycle fan but lost a 10 year old child 11 years ago. She was hit by a car going to the mailbox and I am sure this compassionate soul would have had some logic and reason (however looney) regarding her death also.. He/She is just a nasty toxic little person who is best avoided.

Motorcycle riders who do not wear their helmets are spreading hope to all of us who need a donated organ to survive. Quite often a motorcyclist without a helmet will have severe head injuries but intact organs. Being a person who is on the waiting list to receive an organ from such a motorist, I say KEEP IT UP, SIGN UP TO BE AN ORGAN DONOR BEFORE YOU RIDE, AND SEND ME A KIDNEY!!

I just wish the speed-demons on motorcycles would find somewhere besides Indiana State Road 44 to practice their 70-90 mph thrills. There is nothing like having one of these clowns popping over a hill on the centerline when I am coming up the other side of the hill. I am surprised that there are not more accidents on In-44 than there has been.

There are head injuries in virtually EVERY car accident, even from air bag deployment ! The head is the farthest point of velocity-induced leverage from the mandatory seatbelt, therefore it is also the fastest forward momentum part of the body, again thanks to the seatbelt. If motorcyclists are again forced to wear helmets, then ALL vehicle operators should be forced to wear helmets, and suffer the same loss of peripheral vision and hearing that the helmets inflict upon the motorcuclists .
What nonsense. Drivers have seatbelts, four wheels, steel surroundings, and airbags. Motorcyclists have leather, cotton, skin, and bones. Who do you suppose is better protected?

I seen the whole accident happen. I was picking up a friend at Bubbaz Bar and Grill...I just so happen to hear a bunch of motorcycles coming down the road so i looked (i love motorcycles). I just so happened looked up just as soon as this gentlemen was riding past and watched the whole accident from the beginning. He was not going fast and by the looks of everything that happened that night i don't believe his death was mainly cause by head injuries. I just recently talked to an officer who called my house since i witnessed this horrible accident and found out that kevin hit gravel and lost control of his bike..He tried to straighten the bike out but it was too late. I don't think people on here have a right to comment about his death if you really don't know the whole story. This gentlemen lost his life and you people on here show no remorse, but you want to sit here and stereotype all motorcyclist from what you see or hear from others. Once again my prayers are with his family and friends.

All my sympathy goes out to this man's family and friends....may you ride on in Heaven!
And as for all of you that think the government should step in to make everyone wear helmets....think about what you are starting. Don't allow the government to take away all of your rights....this is America, land of the free... Wear a helmet or not....how does this affect my neighbor and his safety? Maybe the government should look into banning grease because then it would stop people from dying of heart attacks. Or better yet, why don't you ask the government to ban sex....then no more diseases. Sound stupid, exactly! You give up your rights...but I never will.
