Seat belts in cars save lives, football requires helmets, as does hockey, horse racing, car racing (yep – even NASCAR), and more.
Think how strange you would think anyone to be who walked onto the field to play, or race without a helmet, YET so many have nothing but EXCUSES when on a motorcycle.
Freedom – Who’s? Your spouse’s to fend for their self if you are either dead or badly injured? Your children’s freedom? No matter what age or their age – NO ONE wants to be without a living, healthy parent. How about your hard working neighbor, friend, or fellow American – They should have the right to spend THEIR own money on themselves rather than having to support you, and/or your family. Did you think of them? hmmmm.
You ever complain about government not caring and taking and spending your money to make themselves “rich”, more powerful, and/or living lavishly, while YOU work hard just to get by? I do! Many do! And we should! — Well, you are no better if you take away other people’s rights, and their choice of how to spend their money but you did it anyway for your own pleasure because “you could”.
When was the last time you looked at today’s helmets? Just as cars, phones and styles have changed so has helmets. Want to “feel like a kid again” or renew the pleasure of riding like never before? Want to actually be more comfortable and safer too? You are in for a real treat!
Today I, my wife and MANY in-the-know ALWAYS wear full face (actually modular, or “flip-face” for us). Sight greatly improved! Sound improved! Oh-my-awesome Comfort & Safety! For vision, think rain, bugs, sand, gravel. Rain seems to almost disappear with today’s face-shields! They are unbelievable – throwing rain away better than windshield wipers on your car! Sound – greatly cuts down on wind noise to hear better! And remember: wind noise damages hearing!
Hot outside? Our helmets keep our heads “in the shade” rather than cooking in the sun, and allow a nice breeze to flow through too (cooler than no helmet riding). Cold outside? With air vents closed, helmets keep you warm.
Vision – oh so many say “it blocks one’s vision”. WRONG! Only a poorly fitted helmet does that! I can see just as much with my helmet on as if wearing no helmet. The helmet MUST FIT your head, not your neighbor’s head.
Getting tired or neck hurt? Likely the wind is pushing your head back! A great helmet cuts through the wind to make riding effortless!
AND what if the worst thing happens – a crash, even falling over in the parking lot sand – I am nicely protected! Brain is tough to fix! Neck injuries – contrary to popular beleif, helmets mostly prevent them! Seat belts are great in cars – Helmets are AWESOME on cycles! They prevent injury!
In short — You gotta try it to believe it! —Ask us “how to choose a good helmet”. We’ll be glad to help!—Bet you will change your mind – once you try the new types and technology! Don’t like technology – Throw away your cell phone, your air conditioning, your internet, cable TV, your blood pressure pills and your mom’s pacemaker too! Even football is looking at ways to “be better and safer”. You will ride more and love it more and change your life forever! Learn to Smile – Learn to Live Well!
