Where I be

I just registered on the site yesterday. I am purchasing a barely used 2006 Royal Star Tour Deluxe this week. I live in a suburb of Austin (Pflugerville).

Austin, TX Here! My mom has an 08 V-Star 650, Step dad has a V-Star 1100, and I used to have a Yamaha R1 but I sold it during college and I just moved here. When I get some income again I plan to get another R1. Since I just moved here I'm still learning laws and Regs but is it a law that you have to wear a helmet in TX?

No way man. Just cruise around on one of the Vstars. I still have my HJC Carnage helmet but my G/F doesn't have one yet. I ordered a Fly Racing Winners Circle for her but she hasn't gotten it yet. Should be here sometime this coming week. And I don't want to wear a helmet if she doesn't have one and look like a jackass lol! By the time I get a R1 we'll both have helmets.

Yeah I googled the Texas helmet law, it may not be 100% correct but from what I found a Police Officer can't pull you over for only not having a helmet. Because it basically isn't worth it just to check your age and health insurance. It may be wrong but that's what I understood from it.

Edit: Yeah the link you posted says, "The law prohibits a peace officer from stopping or detaining a person who is the operator of or a passenger on a motorcycle for the sole purpose of determining whether the person has successfully completed a motorcycle operator training and safety course or is covered by a motorcycle health insurance plan."
