statistics show a dramatic increase in spinal colum injuies when the rider wears a "full-face" helmet.<quoted text>
I was in a motorcycle crash once. The helmet (full faced) saved my lower jaw from being crushed in.
I do not think it should be a law to wear a helmet, but I'll always wear one.
Helmets impair brain function, hearing, sight and add "killing" mass to the neck and spine.
If you are wearing a full-face helmet, you are a novice biker. Stay in church and pray,wear a full-face helmet, safer for you, nothing at all will happen to you.
