Wisconsin law requires all motorcycle operators under 18 or those operators holding an instructional permit to wear a helmet with a chin strap that is properly fastened. Passengers under 18 are also required to wear a helmet.
Regardless of age, all motorcycle operators must wear a protective face shield, glasses, or goggles, unless the bike is equipped with a windshield that rises to a minimum of 15 inches above the handlebars.
The laws do not apply to those participating in a parade sanctioned by a local municipality.
