    When I started riding, didn't know if I would like it so I borrowed everything I could (including an old single cylinder Honda and an open face helmet.) It took me exactly one short ride through rain before I purchased my first full face helmet. Cheap leather gloves, a leather jacket from a thrift store, and hiking boots were my garb then. All that has improved - at substantial cost - with much improved comfort. Hey, I've even bought a few motorcycles.

    While I am not sorry BC requires helmets (and a fake helmet will likely satisfy the law,) I do wonder if riders who chose to ride without a helmet where legal, a fake helmet where one is required, or an open face one (presumably welcoming the sting of rain and bugs and the possibility of a crash rearranging their face) actually have a brain worth protecting. If they don't think so, why should us ATGATT nuts legislate them into doing just that?

    BTW, if you require truly protective helmets, where does it end? When I say I'm an ATGATT person, I'm exaggerating - I don't own an instantly inflatable vest. From what I've read, they will reduce injuries in a crash and probably actually save some lives. Should they be legally required?

    I'm coming down on the side of allowing people to take the additional risks they please when they ride motorcycles if they don't endanger the rest of us. Of course, there is a substantial percentage of the population who think the act of riding a motorcycle is too dangerous an activity to be allowed. We don't want to go there.

    Donors

    I have nothing against organ donors. They are also easy to spot.
