Himself used to ride a motorcycle. He calls a helmet a "brain bucket". He figures that those who don't use one, especially in high-risk riding (traffic, highway) really don't have something they think is worth protecting. And he never bothered to leave it off on the gentle country roads so he could feel the wind through his hair because you first need to HAVE hair!
