Default Re: It's helmets not assault weapons.

Bad example Kpaul. I'll bet you didn't know that the AR15 is used every day for legitimate competition, which is supported by the government. You really do believe everything you're told, don't you?

Better to have a pan of red wine full of hungry piranha (as everybody knows, piranha in Rio carioca slang means a hooker).

You can tie both of these deaths to this one

WWJD? Well, if he wouldn't stay away from Jeruselem knowing that they were going to crucify him, I'm going to say he'd probably take a chance and ride without a helmet.

Hate to say it, but he did croak in a hospital bed.



I saw on one of those shows he used to say the bike was going to decide his fate, and that's why he didn't wear a helmet. Hell of a long way to go just to prove your point.

You're wasting your time. Logic has no place in an argument with him.

Most two-wheel riders in the world don't wear helmets or special gear of any kind.



India and China are the world's two biggest motorcycle/scooter markets, and Indonesia is a close third. When riding in those countries you rarely see helmets or other rich-world gear. However, engine displacement tends to be smaller. Also, bikes are used as family/daily transportation, not as lifestyle choices.



Even here in Korea, only about half of the motorcycle riders wear helmets. "Construction hard hat"-type helmets are quite common, as are "World War II German soldier"-type helmets. I sometimes feel silly in my full-face helmet, thick leather gloves, sunglasses, protective boots and reflective vest.



My gloves have protected me from gory bug splats on my knuckles. My visor has protected me from rocks, large insects and dust/pollution. My reflective vest has saved from more than a few sloppy lane changers and left turners.



In my one crash, I skidded out on loose gravel after accelerating too quickly. I went down. My helmet whacked against the ground. The gravel left a scar on the helmet paint. My head was fine.
