HELMETS. A GREAT INVESTMENT FOR YOUR FUTURE

Helmets save lives. No one gets onto their motorcycle expecting to crash, but accidents do happen, despite all efforts on your part to be very safe. You may do all of the right things, but you cannot control the actions of other drivers or unexpected circumstances, such as wild animals on the road, deep potholes, items falling off of trucks, or other unexpected and unforeseen events. Motorcycle helmets provide great protection against getting a severe head injury that may leave you debilitated, in a coma, or cause your death. Helmets are important not only for the operator of a motorcycle, but also for a passenger on the motorcycle, and should be worn at all times. Many deaths of those not wearing helmets are from severe head injury. Many of these deaths are preventable.
