I too was opposed to this law, but always wore a helmet out of choice because of the safety aspects and how would you be able to see when it was raining. Riding a 3 wheeler can be exempt from this law, why?. It baffles me.

I won't force my opinion on others, but I have worn a helmet since I started riding in 1968.  Not due to a law of government, but the law of survival!

I was one of those forced to wear a helmet on my Vespa 90
if it was not law I would not have bothered
I was young full of life and too stupid to see danger
first ride on my scooter along the south circular and a young west indian lad on his brothers racing bike shot out in front of me
my head hit the kerb
my 1 day old helmet was scrap and new Vespa badly damaged
the cyclist didnt do too well either
Fred Hill was a Don R in wartime, he wore a helmet as they all did ?

For a short time, yes, died in 1984.

Hi guys. I'm a proud owner of a new (to me) 2016 Audace with 67 miles on the clock. My grandpa always loved his Guzzi and I just fell in love with the Audace. Everyone at the dealership was just staring. They were like “what the hell is that thing”. It's a Harley killer. That's what it is. Anyway, it's too icy and cold for riding but as soon as it thaws, it's on like Donkey Kong. Keep the shiny side up folks.
