    You need something like a neck roll for a football helmet.

    When my wife was a kid, she would ride on the back of her dad's dirt bike. Her seat was a life jacket that was sitting on the back rack.

    I'm in the helmet wearing camp because I'm concerned about hitting my head on the ROPS. But my wife is not. She says if she has to wear a helmet she'll stop going on rides... it's a dilemma. We always wear seat belts because the Yamaha screams like a Sea Doo if you go over 10 mph with the seatbelt unbuckled.

    Second child happened that way, NO poop! But I'm Smitty, my sperm doesn't swim, it leaps barriers and used spermicide and a rubber on top of all that! Think a condom is only good for 2 minutes! HA!

    My 8 year old son drives the pioneer 1000, with me behind him the seatbelt doesn’t fit. He is standing on the floor board because it’s the only way he can reach the pedals. With a helmet on he can’t see as well as he should, please pray for him!

    My mind has been changed. I'm going to take my Ninja over to the VFW to buy a round for any vets and a triple for any D Day vets. It's less than a block away so I now think my flip flops and basketball shorts are plenty. I better take a wife beater with me so I can get in to be served though. After copious amounts of alcohol and stories have been taken in I will wheelie the entire way back home. Maybe a man card will be waiting for me in the garage when I return.

    Bahahahahaha

    In NYS, it’s the law. Plus you look out of place without a helmet. So we all wear helmets. It’s second nature. Seatbelts too. We know about expiration dates but it’s always fun to break out the sparkly gum ball once in a while. Bottom line, I think helmets are a good idea but if you have the choice to use one then it’s your choice. I’m not gonna knock ya. ;)

    i seriously disagree with your choice of shoe. I only ride in laceless Vans becasue they do not interfere with the shifter. You must do the same!

    Dang it. I guess I will head to the mall in my flip flops and buy a pair of laceless Vans. I better hurry it will be closing soon. No worries my Ninja is pretty fast and the mall is only five-ish miles.

    I hope your laces don't find their way over your shifter on your trip!

    When we ride in the San Juan Mtns in SW Colorado (Alpine Loop, Imogene Pass, Black Bear Pass, etc)in most counties it is law, anyone under 18 must wear a helmet, and they enforce it heavily at all times. Wouldnt be surprised if its that way everywhere before long. My thoughts are, absolutely on an atv (Rancher, Rincon) helmets all the time, no exception, on sxs with seat belt and roll cage, use your best judgment, like many have said, you cant un-do a brain injury, and they can happen to anyone at any time. On tougher, rockier trails, especially where the chances of rolling over are higher, I would certainly require my kids to wear helmets, goggles, etc. Just cruising around the farm, probably not, though I probably should.
