if you are going up a steep hill make sure you are going fast enough to make it all the way up. i did not... and got hurt pretty bad. it cost me 1500 bucks to get it fixed, bummer. please be carefull when riding up hills they can hurt you bad. lucky for me i had my helmet on, it did get broken as well. could have been much worse. the good news is that once the hoda rolled end over end about 6 times it started right back up. tried to ride it back to the truck but my back rim was bent badly so i had to ride back on the wifes bike.

I have mixed feelings on helmets and these atvs. For my riding style and area I choose not to wear one. I go mainly under 10mph usually closer to 5mph all weekend and stay in mud and low areas. I don't ride on steep hills. I raced motocross for years though and have never rode without a helmet on with only two wheels. I know helmets can be the difference between having a headache and being a busted watermelon! I just down wear one riding atvs unless I HAVE to, and to date, I haven't had to yet. I also believe that if you are hurt and not wearing a helmet its your own fault. I know the consequences of my actions and can live with them whichever way it turns out.

Just worry about your own life, we can take care of ourselves. [/quote]

Hey Eric, I did not tell you how to live your life! I could care less if you use one or not. I have not been riding as long as some of you, but I have seen many people get hurt and killed by not wearing a helmet. I have not seen anyone get hurt or killed because of wearing one. If I would have came in here and said "only dumbasses don't wear helmets" I would expect to get a responce like yours. I have never did that and will never do that so don't jump my ass for it.

I completely agree there are times when you are just not gonna need one. Then again, I would not ride without mine. I have gotten spoiled with the visor on mine too, because I will let all kinds of crap hit me in the head when I am riding / making trails. Today I got a 3 inch dead tree limb...
