I can count the number of MP3's I have seen in St. Pete on one hand and have fingers left over and that includes the one I owned for a short period of time. I pulled up behind this one today. Never seen speakers like that before and did not recognize the music it was playing.

Hello
I find it very original to listen to music as well, but I am always surprised when I see a person driving without a helmet on the head. I know that in some countries and in some states it is not an obligation. but when we see the state of the motorcycle helmets after some accidents, even slight! , I think it's a good thing that it exists. I do not want to judge this person or this practice. I simply express the fact of my concern for the health of these people in the event of an accident.

In the UK you have to wear a helmet UNLESS you are a Sikh. But when it's hot i see riders not wearing suitable clothing i will not go on the bike without armoured jeans ,leather jacket ,gloves and boots what ever the weather. Fall off a bicycle and see the damage it can do to you.

I agree with you 100% 3legsofman. I've laid my bike down only once,but I was especaily greatful that I was wearing protective Clothing. It really saved my bacon. All I ended up with was a damaged MP3,a damaged right Boot, a small bruse on my right leg and a slighty brused ego. It was a little embarassing.

Hi there legs, I must say you are correct for motorbikes but not for trikes of which our beloved mp3 LT falls into that category.

So the MP3 LT range can be ridden in the UK with no helmets for driver or pillion, but you would have to be daft to do so really!

I am originally from North Carolina and when we went to South Carolina, no helmet law, it just amazed me to see all the people stopping at the border to remove their helmets. NO WAY!! Scrape an apple across the street and that will basically mimic your skin. My mom was a nurse and during her residency, her first patient was a motorcycle accident. Lost all the skin from his ankle to his ear. Needless to say, she doesn't care about my riding stories. Again, Darwin will take care of those that choose not to wear all the gear all the time. I know it gets hot, and wearing all the gear can get claustrophobic, but when you lay your bike down and you are missing the gear and your skin comes off, you will have felt nothing more painful than that.
