If Indian Larry wore a helmet he'd still be alive.
Why perform stunts on a motorcycle without a helmet?

If Jesus said he was just kidding he would still be alive.... Indian Larry was at a track. Doing a stunt he had done a hundred times before and that time he was moving to slow.

I just checked the motorcycle crash rule book, apparently it is possible to crack your bare head open even in a low speed crash. I think it has less to do with speed than it does with smashing your head on something very hard like the ground. I could be wrong. When I was a kid I once had a teacher yell at me for balancing a chair on two legs, I told him I can't bust my head open because I'm not even moving. He seemed to disagree. ; ^ )

My two cents. I say do whatever makes you smile. I am a risk taker and someday one of the risks I take is going to take my life. I'm fine with that, I would much rather leave this shitty world doing something that I enjoy than of old age or at the hands of some street punk. Indian Larry lived and died doing what he loved.

We all ride motorbikes, we all take risks.
There are risks, and then there are just dumb and dumber risks.
I think we all know what category of risk the late Indian Larry was taking.

EXACTLY!...We all take a risk getting out of bed in the morning...
