 I am sick of the helmet laws that are not enforceable
 I have a harley davidson (hd) premium oil cooler kit part number (p/n) 62868-99 that was installed new on my 2000 flhr road king. in june 2009 the motorcycle (bike) developed an engine oil leak. cycle city, the local hd dealership, was contacted and an appointment scheduled to have repair kit p/n 94239 installed on july 21, 2009 under hd recall code 0109. because i didn

 (odometer reading 1627. i have a 2005 flhrci (road king classic) which had been involved in an accident and had undergone frame replacement and front end repair/replacement in january 2006. i have had my bike back to carolina h-d several times since the accident to investigate an unusual sound coming from the rear wheel but they could never find anything. so, after going over the possibility of the heat shield ,maybe causing the noise, i decided to go ahead and have aftermarket pipes put on my bike and also have it deniedat carolina h-d. ow my bike has slightly over 3600 miles on it. most people would say it is barely broken in. expecting to get a call to pick up my bike, i got a call telling me that my secondary belt on my road king had broken just as they had finished the dyno testing. what surprised me more than anything was that i was to pay for the costs of the new belt! these belts should last longer than 3600 mi. i knew an old guy that had an '84 shovelhead and the belt on that bike had over 40k on it. seems like the belt should have gotten replaced when the bike was damaged from the accident and just got missed or the belt is just defective. if harley is going to start being this cheaply made, then i am going to switch back to bmw. i am thoroughly disgusted!
 There is proof that motorcycle helmets cause accidents due to fatigue. please reverse the laws in the states that force motorcycle helmets and write a law that requires motorcyle safety courses before people can have motorcycle licenses. *tr
