Ride Safe Oklahoma

Earlier this year Oklahoma Today did a nice section on motorcycling in the Sooner State. Obviously this was of interest to me.

But leafing through the magazine I was a little surprised by all the bare skin pictured. Tank tops, shorts and many bare heads. I was prompted to write a letter.

Dress Code Fail
Dress Code Fail

Surprisingly they printed it in the latest issue!

Seeing motorcyclists riding without helmets in popular media is akin to drivers without seat belts or doctors smoking cigarettes on TV. Unless it’s on Mad Men it just really doesn’t seem right. I can remember when bicycle helmets were considered dorky- yet today they are a fashion statement.

Call me politically correct or whatever you like- but people do what people see. Like it or not.
