Why do motorcyclists still not wear helmets?

I can’t believe in this day and age motorcyclists still choose not to wear helmets. The excuses about rights and freedoms are ridiculous. In many states I have the “right” to text and drive. Logic and maturity tell me it isn’t a good idea. As far as helmets restricting eyesight, I think that is a pretty lame excuse. There are about as many different types of helmets as there are riders. Please wear a helmet. It doesn’t have to be law to be logical.
