Bill to repeal Tennessee helmet law defeated

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A Tennessee senate committee voted to keep a lid on it March 26, voting down a bill that would have repealed the state’s helmet law for adults 21 and older.

The Automobile Club of America opposed the repeal, saying it would lead to more highway deaths. A survey AAA conducted in October found 91 percent of Tennesseans were in favor of the current helmet law.

Garry Griffith, Griffith Cycle, told WTVC he had a close call on a motorcycle and a helmet saved his life. "Well they'll save your life. You've got nothing between you and the road and they've saved my life before."

Randon Thought

If your father named you Mark, when he dies he left his Mark on the world.

Online Bullying

We understand that we can't make everyone happy all of the time. But, you just can't make everyone happy.  Theses are usually the online bullies and they all have horrible grammar.

Let me introduce you to David.  Here is our email stream with David, who did not know how to ask an intelligent question and got upset when his non-question didn't get answered to his satisfaction.

Dave: What is the issue for the "skull Helmet" I purchased from you

Iron Horse Helmets: No issue at all.

Received a message on your site saying something was not right with order....
That's why you got my message.
PayPal shows you received the money for a total of $236.00
That's why we are having this moment...
Since are no issues.... Will the helmet be shipping soon since your reply was SO SHORT?

Iron Horse Helmets: I am sorry, it looks like your helmet was just ordered 3 days ago. I don't understand why you have asked it there was an issue. You did not express it and the helmet has only been buffed once. Chrome helmets can't leave until they have been buffed three time.

We have never (in 15 years) had someone surprise us asking if there was "an issue" after three days. Especially for a helmet that is hand crafted and so expensive.

I think it is best if we refund you and go our separate ways.

Dave: ABSOLUTELY ....YOUR SITE SAID AS I HAVE ALREADY SAID BEFORE THERE WAS AN ISSUE WITH MY ORDER.... SO I ASKED YOUR SITE AND FROM SOME DOOR KNOB NAMED Todd GAVE LAIM AS REPLY "there is no issue" AS IF I AM AN IDIOT AND DIDN'T RECIEVE THAT MESSAGE...

AT END OF THE DAY WHEN YOU RECEIVE MY PAYMENT AT FUCKING VERY LEAST ASS CLOWN YOU SEND FUCKING EMAIL SAYING YOU HAVE RECEIVED MY PAYMENT AND ARE PROCESSING MY ODER

I BEEN DOING OLINE BUYING AND SELLING FOR 25 years

AND YOUR SITE AND TODD
ARE LAME


YOU DONT UNDERSTAND WHAT THE ISSUE
REALLY WAS DUMBASS

NO REALLY

WHAT THE FUCK ASS CLOWN

ITS CALLED COMMUNICATION
RETARD

Did anyone else notice that he has shopped on the internet longer than the internet has existed?  Dave must have a time machine!

Fed funding for motorcycle-only checkpoints to end?

U.S. Senators Shaheen (D-N.H.), Johnson (R-Wis.), Ayotte (R-N.H.), Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Collins (R-Maine) have introduced S.B. 127, the Stop Motorcycle Checkpoint Funding Act, which would prohibit federal funding for motorcycle-only checkpoints, limiting the implementation of these discriminatory checkpoints nationwide.

During the past few years, federal, state and local governments spent many hundreds of thousands of dollars on motorcycle-only checkpoints, funds that could have been better spent on programs to prevent distracted driving, increase rider education programs or improve motorist awareness. I've never been pulled into one of these checkpoints, but I have friends who have, particularly in New York State on the major arteries leading to the annual Americade Rally in Lake George. While I have no sympathy for those riding unregistered or uninsured bikes, or with unlawfully loud pipes, motorcycle-only checkpoints is in my view an unlawfully discriminatory practice. If a governmental entity feels the need to check motor vehicles for certain compliance, then pull all non-commercial (commercial is subject to different rules) vehicular traffic into a given checkpoint, not just motorcycles.

Goodbye old warehouse, goodbye


We are officially 100% out of our old warehouse.  The above picture is the last exit.

We would like to thank the old warehouse for 9 years....Not great years, not bad years...Just years.

She was a big warehouse, she boasted 47,000 sqft.   Who needs 47,000 sqft? Maybe Walmart, but not us.

Southern Bikers

Have you ever been to Sweeden? 

Sweden is  known for long legged blonds and the Southern Bikers Motorcycle Club.

Sure, they have done a few other things since they were founded in 1397.  Here are some interesting facts about Sweden:



Sweden is the 3rd largest EU country in land area, after France and Spain.

Sweden is one of the homelands of the Germanic ethnicity and culture. The Goths, the Suevirs and the Norses (Vikings) all trace their origin back to Sweden (as well as Norway and Denmark for the latter).

In the 9th and 10th centuries, Swedish Vikings invaded and settled in parts of Eastern Europe as far as Constantinople and the Caspian Sea. They founded the first kingdom of Russia. All the Tsars of Russia until the last one, Nicholas II, were of Swedish Viking descent.

As of 2006, Sweden had won 588 (winter and summer) Olympic medals, a feat only excelled by 6 much more populous countries (the USA, the USSR, Italy, France, Germany and the UK).

In 2010, 2011 and 2012, Sweden was ranked third in the world for the inequality-adjusted Human Development Index (HDI) defined by the United Nations Development Programme.

In 2006 Swedish people had the longest life expectancy in Europe (80.51 years). As of 2010 they were fifth (80.88 years), overtaken by Switzerland, Italy, Iceland and France.
Swedish people have the lowest income inequality in the world, with a Gini index of 23 in 2005.

Sweden has the smallest gender employment-rate gap in the developed world, with only 4% more men in employment than women.

Swedish women have their first child in average at 30 years old, the oldest in Europe along with Ireland and the Netherlands.

Sweden has the highest percentage of working mothers in the developed world, no less than 76% of them.

The Swedes spend the longest time in tertiary education with an average student age of 25.5 years old.

40% of Swedish women and 32% of Swedish men aged 25 to 64 participate in education or training. Compare it to the EU average is 10% for women and 9% for men.

Sweden has the highest proportion of personal computers per capita in Europe, with 500 P.C.'s per 1,000 people.

A 2007 UNICEF report on child well-being in rich countries ranked Sweden as the best country on 3 out of 6 dimensions (children's material well-being, health & safety, and behaviours & risks), and second best country overall after the Netherlands.

As of 2006, Sweden was the most generous country in the world regarding aid to poor countries. It is the only nation where donations exceed 1% of the GDP.

The Swedish maternity and paternity leave is one of the longest and most generous in the world, allowing the the father and mother to take a shared total of 480 days (16 months) off at 77.6% of their salary.

Bill to Free Nebraska Motorcyclists From Helmet Law Advances

LINCOLN, Neb.-- A bill to repeal Nebraska's mandatory helmet law for motorcyclists will be debated by the full Legislature.

The eight-member Transportation and Telecommunications Committee voted 6-2 on Thursday to advance the measure by Sen. Dave Bloomfield of Hoskins.

Committee members added an amendment that would still require riders younger than 21 to wear helmets.

Lawmakers have tried to repeal the 1989 helmet law since it went into effect, saying motorcyclists have a right to choose on matters of personal safety.

A similar measure advanced to first-round debate last year but failed to gain enough votes to break a filibuster.

Bloomfield has designated the test his priority bill, increasing the odds that lawmakers discuss it this year.

Bill would repeal Nevada's mandatory motorcycle helmet law

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) - It's been discussed in the Silver State several times, and on Thursday state lawmakers heard arguments about it again.

If passed, Senate Bill 142 would make helmets optional for motorcyclists who are at least 21 years old and have had a motorcycle license for a minimum of one year.

Proponents say it's about freedom. Those opposed say changing the law is simply too dangerous.

Pee-Larr Handley, president of the Motorcycle Awareness and Rider Safety organization, said he wouldn't be alive today if he hadn't been wearing a motorcycle during a crash a few years back.

“My take on the [bill] is, I think it's dangerous,” he said.

The bill was introduced by state Sen. Don Gustavson, R-Sparks. Handley called the legislation dangerous.

“You can take a fall at walking speed, hit your head and kill yourself. You add speed to the equation, you're increasing your chances of a fatality,” Handley said.

Riders in some instances argue against helmets for safety reasons. It's been claimed that if a motorcyclist crashes with a helmet on, his or her chances of getting a spinal injury are increased.

Those opposed to helmet laws have also complained that the gear is confining. Handley said that what saved him when he crashed in Utah was a modular helmet.

“You stop at a stop light and push this button and flip it up, you have peripheral vision, you got open face, you can talk to other riders. When it's time to go you're ready to go. Flip it back down and it locks in place. You have the protection of a full face helmet again,” Handley said.

Some riders have suggested they can't afford helmets.

“Well, if you can't afford the gear and you can't afford a helmet, maybe you shouldn't be riding,” Handley said.

While Handley's helmet retails for about $900, BMW Motorcycles of Las Vegas has helmets that start at $75.

This is Gustavson's eighth attempt to repeals Nevada's mandatory motorcycle helmet law. It has been on the books since 1972.

International shipping

Attention foreigners!

Iron Horse Helmets will ship to almost any country. Of course we won't ship to Iran, Nigeria and other countries that hate us.

Yes, we know Canada really hates us, but we like them! So tough Canada.

Now, with all of that said you still live in another country. Your government might be greedy and still charge you taxes.

Rachel learned this the hard way and the Queen of England charged her some pounds.  We feel horrible about that, but those crowns are expensive.

Are motorcycles dangerous?

Are motorcycles dangerous?

Yes

We hate it when customers die.  Does it happen?  Yes

Motorcycles are dangerous...We all know that.  Is a motorcycle helmet going to save your life?  Not all the time.

We want to pay our respects to Ninja Tom.  It truly saddens us to see such a young rider gone so soon. Out thoughts go out to your family and friends.

Ride in paradise!
