Re: [ST] Helmet Laws

That's like our stupid state passing a law requiring hand rails to be on a bike riding a passenger and the passenger isn't allowed to hold onto the rider.

Yet in the DMV driving booklet (for m/c) it says for the passenger to hold onto the driver AND shows a picture wrapping the arms around the mid section.

Talk about a contradiction.

IMO - That law is to prevent passengers from riding on rice rockets, since no rice rocket has handles (nor a place for handles) for a passenger to hold onto.

Regardless of handles I'd prefer my pillion to be holding me anyway.  That way I know where they are, especially when accelerating.  I can feel the pull on my ab and adjust accordingly for safety.

But if they pass the course, they do not need to wear a 

Guess a little training makes the head harder!!!!
