The biker was riding with American Bikers Aimed Towards Education, a motorcycle lobbying group that disagrees with mandatory helmet laws, on Route 11 near Syracuse.  No other vehicle was involved.

He apparently lost control of his motorcycle and went over the handlebars.  He was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead.
 
According to local police, evidence indicates that he would have survived if he had been wearing a Department of Transportation approved helmet.
 
This is such a waste.  I don't understand why people don't want to look after themselves and their safety. I wonder if any of the other riders taking part have now changed their mind?
