i agree that wearing a helmet will help to reduce head injuries significantly, but there are lots of bike accidents where wearing a helmet didnt matter at all. as with the other thread on wearing your gear. to each their own.


I will add this, if you go down and wasnt wearing your gear, dont bitch when they have to use an iodine brush to dig the rocks out of your skin. Mind you they do it without anesthesia

If you smack your noggin on the asphalt, a helmet will probably save your life.

If you have a head-on with a car at any sort of spirited pace, you'll probably succumb to fatal organ squooshiness.

No
If you tip over in a parking lot a helmet may save you from a bump on your head.

Who needs a stinkin' helmet when you have a gremlin bell?

you realize it doesn't matter how fast you're traveling, if your head hits the pavement due to gravity, the impact is the same. doesn't matter if you're doing 150, or 0, forwards... gravity still pulls you to the earth at the same speed.

if you're traveling at a higher rate of speed, after protecting you from the impact to the pavement, the helmet also protects your face from road rash as you slide along the pavement waiting for friction to get you stopped.

Do you realize that more than 50% of D.O.T. helmets fail a 6 ft gravity drop test. The speed from 6 ft to the ground is roughly 13 MPH.
I dont think that 55 gallon drum that you wear while doing 180 mph on your speedy crotch rocket is even going to make you a good looking corpse.
