IF you're really worried about injuries in a collision... would you even be riding a motorcycle?

Even WITH a helmet... your chances of serious injury or death in a collision are very high on a motorcycle.

Some people think driving defensively is the best protection when on a motorcycle (not a helmet). They focus on keeping distance between them and other drivers when on a motorcycle.

Some feel a helmet restricts their vision and hearing and keeps them from being aware of the traffic around them and what's going on around them.

If you really want to be safe... don't even get on a motorcycle... Even with a helmet.

But if you really want to take the chance and ride... wear a helmet. At least your head will be safe...
