VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) - There's more than one reason why you should wear a helmet on a motorbike.
Vancouver Police say a helmetless man was spotted riding a Honda Jazz scooter early this morning on the Downtown Eastside.
Constable Tim Fanning says the scooter driver got away from officers but then crashed the scooter into a newspaper box at Princess and Alexander. Fanning says as the man was trying to run away, he ran head-first into a steel pole. The 39 year old man is recovering in hospital from head injuries.
It turns out the scooter was stolen and the man faces charges for that as well

we should start a law with the cops..... or just recommend this.... every one of us supposely has one bike with one matching helmet.... so if the helmet is unmatching.... the cops should question the rider.... and check if the bike is stolen

maybe a good idea?

He probably got inspired by the Crackers N Binners ride outs....or was practicing to take us out on the next ride.
