Riding a motorcycle can be a lot of fun. The best riders are those that obey the rules and wear proper safety gear. I know that when I drive along I see people without helmets, wearing sandals and even shorts. Not a great idea if you happen to dump your bike. Wearing a helmet protects your head. Bashing your head on the ground if you due dump your bike is asking for disaster. Wearing a helmet like the HJC Modular helmet, will protect your head in the event something happens and you are in an accident, or you dump your bike and find yourself skidding along the ground. Be smart and wear protective gear when you ride.
