Riding a motorcycle with a titanium plate in your head

The mailbag gets all sorts, but this was totally out of left field:

I WOULD LOVE TO RIDE AGAIN BUT I HAVE A TITANIUM PLATE IN MY SKULL FROM A PREVIOUS ACCIDENT … IM NO HERO … SHOULD I RIDE AGAIN AND RISK DYING …

Graham,
I am no doctor, although I do have a degree in biology, and I have almost completely erased all that knowledge from my brain. So I have no clue about what would happen if you fell off a motorcycle and hit your head. But I do know that anyone who rides a motorcycle could die at any time. That is one of the risks we take when we pull out of our driveway. We try to minimize the risks and make smart decisions to keep us alive. And in your situation it is no different. You may decide that motorcycling is not worth it and that is OK. But for me life is too short to take the “safe” route. I strive for quality of life, not quantity.

I would say, “slow down” and ease back into riding if you choose to. I don’t know what got you in the first accident but I can only imagine there was a lot of skidding, bouncing, and crushing. Wear a helmet and proper gear and take a motorcycle class. And when listening to the doctors remember, their job is to patch you up; your job is to live your life.

    If you have a titanium plate in your skull, you’re more protected than I am. I say ride!

    Dying is not a risk it’s a certainty. There are a billion things that might kill you every day. We’ve just learned to ignore them as a risk and take the precautions we each feel necessary. You are going to die, but you do have a choice in what you do to postpone the event. I for one do never ride without a helmet. But some wouldn’t ride a motorcycle at all.
    How you choose to take care of yourself can never be anything but a personal decision.

    Ride safe.
