    Since the original poster didn't ask... I'll not give my opinion on this topic. I'm confident my position, (while well reasoned and correct ), won't be acceptable to a percentage of members here... just because there is no way we could all agree.

    Scroll down the left side to near the bottom and you'll see the app. Once it's on your phone you can dial up any state and see all three requirements.

    PS: I've bought my last 4 helmets at The Helmet Shop and their prices have been lower than anything I've found online. FYI.

    If you ask us to stay, we'll leave. You don't even have to mean it. Go ahead, you can do it...

    A little off subject, but I find it amusing/odd in Florida that most motorcyclist don't wear a helmet, but bicyclist do in the Destin area....go figure.

    You can ride sans helmet in Mexico. Follow that logic all the way to the Hospital holding you ransom until your family pays the bill.

    But, more important that any of this is the glaring issue left on the ground as if we are all in denial that it exists.

    Why consider all this helmet law silliness when you are all using the wrong oil for those crappy tires you had installed ?

    Stay on point.

    Pardon me for asking, but is it worse to use crappy oil or wrong tires? Whoops wrong thread. Whoops wrong question.

    I hate being surrounded by idiots!

    Why is everybody looking at me?

    Did I say that out loud?

    No helmet required in Pennsylvania. But it seems many decide to take one along strapped to the side of their bike. I figured out why on a ride last year. We were traveling up I-99 above Altoona when a group of retiree aged women passed us on Harleys all with Florida plates, all with helmets, go grandma's! Another guy on a harley decided to join their group going up the highway, his helmet was on his tank between his legs (guess he was protecting his jewels). Well I guess he wanted to fit in with the group he joined so while doing 75 mph up the interstate he put his helmet on!

    The same here in SC. Seat Belts mandatory. Helmets No. Doesn't make a lot of sense to me..

    In NH we don't need either one. We can kill ourselves with 2 wheels or 4!
