How are they going to be ripped off if they are inside your shirt and riding jacket?

I was just responding to a previous concern. I am not worried about the ones I wear during my commute (on right now as well), but If you wear them enough you would know they can slip out and get tangled. The red line on the neck is from personal experience in a non-moto related incident.

just looking out for everybody.. I personally don't feel safe wearing a necklace or dog tags or anything around my neck when im riding just because of the decapitation factor. as for some of you mentioning the helmet and it rubbing off.. if you look at a crash chart of a helmet apparently there are very little chances of impact on certain areas of the helmet.. and for the wallet that some of you guys mentioned where would my wallet of been found at msrh on saturday? I just think the wallet unless im in my jeans for a street ride is out dated for the track. but lots of good ideas and feedback I see this thread is doing its job in making you think of creative ways to get your info out there.

Yup, I use dog tags and it's true that they don't hold under heavy pressure, like if they got tangled in something during a crash they'd just break away. But they last a long time and they won't break away unless they're forced to, and they're around your neck, so if the EMTs have to do CPR and rip your shirt, they'll see that first. But it never hurts to have more info in other places too I guess.

All good ideas.

Fact remains, if you arent carrying ID/wallet on you, you're a dumbazz. Even at the track, yes. There's an inside pocket, put it in there.

As for helmets, remember it can be damaging to the individual IF you remove the helmet during a crash. Yes, the helmet should go w someone when they crash to be observed but last couple street deaths we've seen it had not.

We pulled info out of one of their phones, the other one wasnt with us and so we just got the name before he was taken w life flight.

Regardless, you should be riding w other people to assist if the inevitable happens. Will they know of your medical history etc? Probably not but that's where medical cards or descriptions in w your ID helps.

Just some thoughts.

Sounds like a good idea, one of the few motorcycle accidents I assisted with was on a back road. The bike apparently slammed through a fence and into some trees at a high rate of speed. While we were looking for the rider one of the wrecker drivers found the helmet and was saying how heavy it was, if it was water filled. The paramedic said sorta, the guys guys head is still in there.

Just thought of this.
Don't first responders look at the helmet of an unconcious victim to ascess head injuries? If so, finding an area that is not prone to impact would be the best spot.

Please chime in Medics/Docs/etc
