Oh, crap, Wart, I think you found another horse for us to beat.

Iowa doesn't require any eye protection.

Not a big fan of helmet laws , but i NEVER ride without eye protection. A helmet doesn't prevent a crash, goggles do!

No such law here in the great white north. But who would ride without it anyway. Lose your site, lose your life. It's just good common sense to wear eye protection.

But being the safety conscious professional that he is, Stratowart wears his faithfully, even in bed (And yes, all his children are adopted...)

Massachusetts it is required during lerners permit and a windshield meets the requirement.

I find it odd that eye protection is not mandatory for bikers. There must be a lot of good reasons for it to be a requirement by law. One reason that i have is a pedestrian is at risk from an approaching biker recieving a sudden eye injury. And a small stone kicked up on a highway, like the one that puts a divit in your car's windshield, could create multi-vehicle chaos should it nail a biker in the eye.

Your thoughts?
Come to think of it Wart, this country does not have mandatory eye protection, not in this state anyway. Helmets are mandatory but not goggles.
