Your body - your choice.

Yup.

I've always said there should be no motorcycle helmet law for the driver/owner. That's his decision. Rode an old Honda 450 for many years. Would NEVER consider riding without a helmet (and leather jacket and leather gloves)....but that's my choice.

So how to incentivize motorcyclist to wear a helmet? Make the bodily injury portion of the insurance contingent on the wearing and securing of a DOT approved helmet. You don't wear one, your personal injury is excluded.

Not sure that's legal or not....but it would be great incentive.
