I live in Florida and always wear one. It gets hot in a full face so I swap between the full face and shortie depending on weather and how far I going. Passengers wear one or they don't ride. My brother rides and always wears one. He's an ER nurse and sees the results of not wearing one. Being an LEO
I've worked my share of accidents, never had a rider without a helmet live. Seen lots of riders with helmets stand up and walk away. But I do respect ones right to not wear where they can. It's all about personal freedom and choice. I'm off my box now. Thanks!!! stay safe!!
