Call me a , but I just cant feel sorry for anyone who dies while not wearing a helmet. Same as when a smoker dies to me. They knew they were killing themselves. It was their decision.

Even more so a to make a post like that in an RIP thread. hopefully you'll find out where the funeral is so you can go protest it. ( tard......)
Thanks, noob. So a helmet ISNT the most important piece of equipment?

And it COULD be said that you suck . I'm not sure if that is true, but I can speculate.

Nope, perfectly normal. Went over the bars, bounced off the windshield/roof and landed on pavement. Easily dead without a helmet. They had some good gashes and broken bones, but no head injuries.

And one that hit a car from behind. He was doing about 120, hit the rear of a car that merged doing 60. He flew over the car and skidded to a haul on his face. It ground all the way through the chinbar, and a hole on the forehead part of his helmet. He was in the hospital for 3 months for other injuries, but half his skull would have been gone.

(the number of posts I have under this login has nothing to do with my experience level)

Please, keep spewing your ignorance. Its making an awesome picture of your intellect.
Next thing, you will be defending drunk driving, giving kids crack, and a million other irresponsible, and honestly outright STUPID decisions.

And by the way, you called me a " tard". You want kindergarten name calling, you got it, .

Maybe if the mass of the body hits a flat surface where there would be no deflection of energy.

I most cases, the BIKE takes the brunt of the impact, and the rider keeps going, skipping along.

You however are casting blame on an outright "STUPID decision". As mentioned earlier, that choice could be extrapolated to bike riding in general. When "Coach & Andy" passed in their accidents, did you casually stand there at the wake and say "it was their decision"? Could they have been wearing more or better quality gear at their accidents? If so, the same could be said there. "What if...." does no one any good. And remember, you're the one who said "call me a ". I'm just replying to your wish.
You are right. Andy should have been wearing more gear while wakeboarding. Thank you, .

I'm with yah, but smoker and no helmet hmmm.... not not really the analogy I'd use.. I'd rather die on a bike myself than slowly suffocating....

I'd compare the no helmet to a skydiver choosing do do their jumps without a spare chute..... chances are 50/50..... outcome usually the same...


anyway RIP sucks for the familys
