Wearing a helmet while riding your motorcycle is always a smart decision. It will probably save your life or at least your face if you are involved in a crash. Wisconsin however only requires you to wear a helmet in certain situations.
Motorcycle operators must wear a helmet if they only hold a motorcycle instructional permit or if they are under the age of 18. If you have a passenger on your motorcycle that is under the age of 18years old, they too must wear a helmet.
The helmet must meet standards established for motorcycle operation and have a chin strap. If the helmet does not have a full face shield, the operator must then wear glasses or goggles. A windshield does not make the rider exempt from these laws.
