There is nothing like feeling the excitement and freedom of being able to ride a motorcycle with no restraints on the open road. The sun shining on your face and wind blowing your hair provides an experience you cannot match while driving most other vehicles. However, while you might not enjoy wearing a helmet, you put yourself at a significantly higher risk of suffering from a catastrophic injury when you go helmet-less.
Not wearing a helmet means a potential accident could cost you nearly three times as much damage physically and financially. High medical bills coupled with lost income if you are forced to miss work, could lead to a difficult situation for most injury victims and their families. Although Florida law allows insured, motorcycle riders over 21 years of age to ride without a helmet, you are taking a big risk with your overall health and financial future.
