State Helmet Laws along Route 66

Illinois

Helmets not required.

Helmet speakers allowed only for communications.

Missouri

Helmets required.

Kansas

Helmets not required for riders and passengers over 18.

Oklahoma

Helmets not required for riders and passengers over 18.

Texas

Helmets not required for riders over 21 if a motorcycle safety course has been passed or if the rider has $10,000 in medical insurance. A State issued sticker is required to evidence compliance with these rules. This is a crazy rule that is not enforced. I sent away for the required sticker, but the State never sent me one, and I don't know anyone who has a sticker. For all practical purposes, Texas does not require helmets

New Mexico

Helmets not required for riders or passengers over 18.

Arizona

Helmets not required for riders and passengers over 18.

California

Helmets required.
