Mat-Su motorcycle crash-'critical condition'

Looks like we are getting an early start on this stuff.
No helmet. ... "severe head injuries".

Well at least "traffic wasn't too disrupted." Heaven forbid someone would have to wait while an injured motorcyclist was attended to!

There is too many dumb ones, they are expensive for society and if they of course choose to ride without a helmet and hopefully die for it, cool!

So since this guy was riding without a helmet, he deserves to die? Nice attitude...

Best wishes to his family, hearing of this news is never good.

There are so many mean sprited people on this forum. Nobody deserves to die when they're doing something they really enjoy. They should mentality try to put themself in that person position just before impact.

I've ridden just about all winter this year and have seem more riders riding with helmets then not. And all of the people riding have been Harleys

What I don't understand is who lobbies against helmet laws so they can adjust the need for helmet depending on what your riding, four wheelers, scooters, snowmachines, and if your a pasenger or a rider

And that canadian shouldn't say anything since his government has a manditory helmet law to protect it's citizens
