While Florida allows riders with proper insurance to decide whether to wear a helmet or not, studies have shown that helmets reduce the severity of head injuries. The Motorcyle Safety Foundation Web site has additional information and studies regarding helmets and protective gear. The Helmet Information PDF file and the Protective Gear Information PDF file below were provided by MSF; you are encouraged to visit their site by clicking on the logo to the right.
