i do feel your stupid if you ride w/o a lid. it's a decision you make. and as an adult you know what the outcome can be..........live/die.

no worries he's still got millions on the bank to pay to keep him on life support. vs the avg joe shmoe.

most of pro players have clauses in their contract preventing the player from doing activities that might endander their ability to play. things like skiing, skydiving, riding with or w/o helmet are definetly out ... so not only is he screwed physically but financially as well

Naw his choice as it should be all of ours. I wear my helmet on my gsxr because it helps me ride(wind and visibility) plus I go fast and do tricks on that bike. Now I don't wear a helmet on my chopper. Just don't like em for that bike. Something about the wind in my face I like on that bike.

It should be a choice this america not russia.

provided he recovers and is able to continue playing, he has nothing to worry about in regard to being in truble with his employer. he is a quarterback on a super bowl winning team, he could snort coke on the 50 yard line during a game and still just get a slap on the wrist if that. athletes and other celebs can get away with murder. o.j.

i agree. its kinda odd that all states have seat belt laws but some make wearing a helmet a choice.

i think seat belts should be optional for adults. i would still wear mine though.

not to pick on you, but if you crash on your chopper doing 50mph is it the same as crashing on a sportbike doing 50mph?

ben can do whatever he wants i would just think being safe outweighs the cool factor when riding a motorcycle.

Admittedly, I rode for a long time with no helmet. It was seriously addicting. There's nothing like the freedom have having the wind in your face and through your hair.

Then I adopted two children and my helmetless days were over. My kids don't need a vegetable for a father.

F**K any law that tells me I have to wear my helmet OR my seatbelt. That's all I got to say about that.

Being a Busa rider myself, I have searched the net looking for pictures of the wreck. I can't say what caused the accident, but if you look at his rear tire, it is the original tire with very little tire wear. Two things come to mind, no MSF, and or most likely...lack of ridding experience. I had my second Busa four 4mo and have almos 5k on it already. BTW, enjoy this site, wish had time and money to run with you guys & Ladies when everyone gets together...LTR

From article "Roethlisberger seriously injured, still in surgery"

By Jill King Greenwood and and Karen Roebuck
TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Monday, June 12, 2006


Suzuki Motorcycles of North America gave Roethlisberger the bike as part of a promotional deal in exchange for his appearance at several area Suzuki dealerships, including Andrews Cycle in Salem, Ohio, where he picked up the motorcycle last summer. Andrews' sales staff declined comment.

The motorcycle is popular among first-time buyers
, said Steve Stiller, a salesman at Northgate Motorcycles in Cranberry, Butler County.







No comment on this one. :eh:

The only thing I didnt like about Roethlisberger's no helmet attitude was his justifications...I think last year he made them before the season. Get hurt as bad wearing a helmet as not, higher risk of neck injuries, etc. Lunacy. Anyways, this is a bad example to those who ride and look up to this guy.

If he had been wearing a helmet, he'd still have a face and teeth right now. Lucky to be alive at any rate.

and i remember last year when he had this conversation....http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2481004
he sounds like the typical person who thinks he is invincible, and only he can harm himself.
