Hi people, vince here
I wanted to take a moment to talk about the importance of wearing a helmet when on your bike.
It seems like a no-brainer (see what I did there?) to wear a helmet when cruising down the highway on your roadster or screaming down a backroad on your high cc sport bike. Despite this seemingly obvious necessity, a lot of knuckle heads still think they are cool enough to not need to mess up their hair.
Honestly, this kind of thinking isn’t just dumb; it’s just plain selfish!
How many things do we do without thinking about how it would affect others? Have you ever had to bury a friend or other loved one because they thought they were immortal? I have.
Make no mistake, not wearing a helmet doesn’t make you cool, it makes you an accident waiting to happen.
Here are 3 reasons to always, always wear a helmet:
1. Protect Your Brain! Even a low speed skid that ends in a laydown can do serious damage to an unprotected head. The last thing you want when riding your bike is to worry about being permanently disfigured or suffer a head injury that leaves you drooling on yourself.
2. Increase Your Visibility! Motorists from cars to massive cargo trucks don’t always think to pay attention to us bike folks. Wearing a helmet (especially a cool looking helmet) increase your visibility to other vehicle operators, which can save your life!
3. Protection from Road Debris! When was the last time you were driving your car, truck or other vehicle and had something suddenly crack into your windshield? Now imagine something moving that fast hitting you in the face while you are on your bike!
