    I'm a teacher by profession. I always tell my students that "girls can do anything boys can do, and boys can do anything girls can do, except give birth". lol

    I've lost count of how many times random male riders have asked me at gas stations, restaurants, etc. "do you have a sister that rides?"

    Hubby and I just took a 7 day cruise to Alaska. We were in Skagway and saw a H-D rider. The rider wasn't wearing a helmet. I asked a local about the helmet law. He said that riders were not required to wear helmets, but pillions were required to wear a helmet. I thought that was weird. Does anyone know if that is the helmet law in Alaska?

    Hehe, nice!

    To me the pillion helmet rule makes sense in a weird way. Look at it this way, as the rider has a license, there is some kind of understanding of the risks and hazards involved with traffic and riding. And for some reason it has been left for the rider to decide if they want to put their life at serious risk.
    BUT! A friend that might be interested in your bike but has zero knowledge of rules and risks of being on the back of a bike comes along. In which case the pillion is required to wear a helmet since he/she is not a rider with a license and might not be aware of the risks involved.
    Wonder if I make any sense.

    Anyone who rides without a helmet does not know the risk. So I see the operator and pillion as being clueless in that scenario. If it were a case of riding a pillion in an emergency I would wear my helmet for at least eye or projectile protection as I am the operator. If I become impaired my pillion is at more risk.

    Maybe if I was giving someone a ride around the block, with that same helmet law, I would give the pillion the helmet.

    I used to do a lot mountain biking and my helmet was my best friend in a couple of times on the trails.

    After crash photo from mountain biking. When I crashed I had my helmet on.

    I always say "only cover the parts you want to keep" I think that road rash is harder to heal than broken bones.

    Also, the bugs all over my face is icky enough to make me want to wear a full-face helmet everytime.

    Mon,

    That wound did take an aweful long time to heal. It would ooze and I would be stuck to the sheets in the morning. I just happened to be friends with one of the worlds leading wound care specialists and she told me what to get and how to care for it. This woman was beyond in her ability to help people when doctors were at a loss. We just lost her this year and I will always be broken hearted because of who she was and how she treated people medically and spiritually. Her name was Judith Greenhaw.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. We need more people like Judith. Wound care is a much needed medical treatment, and I know doctors don't spend too much time on it. Not only for us bike riders but others. Hopefully, she passed her knowledge onto someone else so her legacy can live on.
