You must always wear a helmut when riding a motorcycle. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), helmets reduce the chance of a fatality in a crash by 29%. Why take chances with your life?
If you are an avid California motorcyclist, then you know more than anyone else that safety must come first. The head is one of the body's most vital organ parts and it is the nerve center for the entire body for everyday function. Injury to the head is one of the most common injured body parts when riding a motorcycle. Therefore, it makes not only common sense, but medical sense to keep a helmet on at all times while out riding in the beautiful California sunshine. If you have a passenger, the same rule applies. Remember, safety first, and then enjoy the ride!
