It's like we were talking the other day about helmets, she had a helmet ( the passenger ) and he didn't!

Not saying a helmet will save your life for sure but it's gives you a whole lot better chance for survival than not wearing one.

I had a couple cruiser riders looking at me one day at a gas station while we were all getting gas and one of them said, how can you wear a helmet in this heat with heat being the excuse. I looked at them and they were both probably in their late 30's to early 40', I said, when is the last time ya'll checked out a helmet, these newer helmets have a/c so the heat is no problem and they also save lives. They both gave me a dumb a look and said, they really have a/c to which I replied, they sure do and then I drove off leaving them to wonder. I know I could never convince a person that age to wear a helmet if they've never wore one but I did get them thinking about the a/c part so maybe, just maybe they went and looked at helmets and for some unknown reason bought one to use!

It's a choice in some states, you don't have to wear a helmet, that being said, I'll always wear a helmet because I have a daughter I want to see grow up besides a few other things that I would like to do prior to moving into the condo at Forest Park.

Helmets are cool, not wearing one is uncool, that's my take on helmets!

I can't see how anyone would even consider riding or doing any "extreme" activity without one.

I've seen enough wrecked helmets to know that i don't want my face/head to look like that. Even at legal speeds and "honest" mistakes/conditions.

RIP. Lesson here- helmets save lives. Speaking of- Any of you see this snowboarding crash from earlier today? I was amazed that she got right up and kept going down the hill! Who knows where she'd be if it weren't for that helmet?
