Do you wear a helmet when you ride? Do most of the people you know? Just wondering your thoughts on that.
I hope so, not gonna tell Bluz how to roll, but seems like a good idea
I can't speak for Bluz, but I have been riding motorcycles since I was a kid. I do not wear a helmet and I am opposed to mandatory helmet laws.
I never wear a helmet when I ride my dad's old Harley. no one I know wears one either. Helmets are for pussys.
Not saying there should be a mandatory helmet law, but isn't it similar (I know not exactly the same) as having a mandatory seat belt law
It is the same. And for the record I don't agree with mandatory seat belt laws either.
Bump for Bluz.
haven't see bluz since that thread regarding the debate between motorcycle vs car operator safety. Hope that thread isn't the reason he hasn't been around. Bluz seems like a good guy, even though we disagreed in that particular thread and it became a heated debate,
my thoughts is that in a free country, we should be able to make the choice whether or not to wear a seat belt and a motorcyclist should be able to make the choice of wearing a helmet.
the only exception i think would be fair as far as seatbelt thing is concerned is if you are in a car, and you have a minor that is not able to consent to adult decisions..but if you choose not to wear a belt, that should be your choice to make and to live with the consequences of.
Yeah I got into with him in that thread but I like him as a poster. I just didn't think he understood what point I was trying to make. Hope he returns
I had a strong disagreement with him also.
Hope his disappearance is because of a busy life, and not the result of any disagreements
bump for Bluz
Isn't he doing schooling now or something? Bluz is not the type of person to stop posting because of an argument. But I do miss him, hope all is well
Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
I second this. I miss Bluz too and hope all is well, but he did mention that he was going back to school. I imagine that, plus running the business with his wife keeps him pretty busy.
Most likely. Hopefully he makes it back soon.
you're outta here!
I've heard him say yes. Very concerned about safety.
I'm confused. Heard him say yes to what? And who's safety? Are you concerned about his? Or is he concerned about someone elses? Please elaborate NC.
He's responding to the OP. As in, yes he says he wears a helmet since he is very concerned about safety.
I am around.
I only wear a helmet when I am in a freedom-hating state (i.e. mandatory helmet law). My safety concerns are more crash avoidance than figuring out how to crash safely.
No, I do not want to discuss it or debate it.
Life is hard. It's really hard if you're stupid.
I'm damn glad you haven't left us my friend!
I realize that you have a life, but that is no excuse to not post here with the rest of us that do not.
Thanks for answering. I wasn't trying to just kind of curious.
Don't ever leave me again Bluz. And tell your bro to get his arse back here
