I agree with you entirely on the aspect of the behavior of what would appear to be the majority of riders who are not the "grizzled" looking, hard
core riders. You know, the ones who appear to belong to a gang
It is very rare that I see anyone outside of that group driving sanely on motorcycles.
Now, with regards to the attire of riders.
Personally, I feel that if you decide to forego a helmet...or a seatbelt for that matter...the government has no right to tell you that you cannot.
At that point, the individual is taking responsibility for potentially disastrous outcomes because of their own personal choices.
If I am in an accident with a motorcyclist, and they chose not to wear a helmet.....guess what? Their added medical bills drives EVERYONE's insurance
So, if you decide not to wear proper attire...... you should pay a significantly higher premium, IMHO.
Not only for your motorcycle insurance, but your health insurance as well.
Your personal decisions impact us all financially.
