Under Indiana state law, motorcycle riders age 18 and over are not required to wear a helmet. However, riders with a permit, and riders under age 18 must wear a helmet and eye protection.
Wearing a helmet is a good idea.
Motorcycles maintain contact with a roadway by two wheels rather than four. That makes them far less stable than a passenger car. They’re also less visible than passenger cars because they present smaller and narrower profiles on the roadway.

To help prevent potential crashes, Louisville has designated certain areas as “reduced speed” areas.
