It shouldn't matter if he was wearing a helmet. That shouldn't be the POINT in this story...the man was a grown up and there is NO law in the State of Oklahoma for people over the age of 18 to have to wear one. The point of this story SHOULD be the STUPID people who DON'T watch for people on motorcycles!

My prayers and condolences, goes to all his family and friends. I was at that flea market a few hours before it happened, and go there often. It is a dangerous place to be, but not so much that you can't stop and look ! I urge all motorcyclists' to ride as if your invisible, and to expect the idiocity like this.

Sorry I have to disagree with helmets and their benefits. There's a reason why people call motorcycles as donor cycles. Unfortunately it doesn't take much to quickly lose control, especially with rough roads as well as any animals and even other vehicles who either don't see the riders or are simply not paying attention until they find a body sprawled across their hood. I realize that if we can send off teens and other young adults to protect our country with their lives, it doesn't quite seem fair to enact laws forcing them to wear helmets. However, anyone under the age of 18 must wear a helmet. Perhaps if many of this avid riders admonishing the use of helmets were come fact to face (that is if there is anything recognizable as anything close to a face), mind sets may begin to change and realize that there is a fate much worse than death, and that being those who suffereed devastating brain injuries, among other life-altering injuriess and disabilitiies and having be forced to allow others to bath them, clean their messes, assist with feeding- that isif they are not having to be fed through a gstric tube or hand fed applesauce. The worst part is that many have a perfect mental faculities,and must be subjected to the humilitating acts to keep clean and treat decubitus ulcers, as well as well as repeated infections and a very slow and painful death, soemtimes over a few years. Rest assured, your family and friends look forward to havig you around as long as possible and not taken away from them simply because they didn't feel "cool" with a helmet.

Sorry to say wearing a helmet doesn't mean you are going to survive. We had a friend that was killed on a motorcycle he was wearing a helmet the other person was too busy talking on cell phone and hit him...
