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...
