Should motorcycle riders wear helmets?

Looking for the old results?
For over 30 years, the feds have mandated helmets for motorcycle riders. Now, the feds gave the choice to the States. Too bad the States do not want to hear how helmets could actually be harmful to the riders. Also, no one publishes a list of approved, tested helmets. We need your opinion, and we need to inform the public.
