Thread: Why we do what we do... (Video Link)

    Re: Why we do what we do... (Video Link)

    My sons head went into the door pillar of a Toyota Highlander at 22 MPH. The helmet cracked. His brain is damaged and he is paralyzed. At 22 MPH. At what point does a helmet become worthless? Experts in court testified that a helmet will only protect you in an impact of less than 12 MPH.

    Helmets do more for road rash than impact. That's horrible about your son Chris. I hate to hear that.
    To have the right to do something is not the same as to be right in doing it.

    In 1982 I was hit head on by a drunk driver who was attempting to pass a car in the curve I was going the opposite direction into. 100MPH crash, me 35, him 65+ and no skid marks, full speed into me. After tearing the handlebars, fairing and radio off with my legs i continued another 40 feet airborne and came down on my head. My high quality helmet saved my life (and it didn't break!) A back fracture and herniated discs torment me to this day but I am alive. My FLT didn't fare too well.

    The video appealed to me at many levels. His interaction with his kids was typically Hawaiian/Polynesian as to family interaction. I'm glad I saw it and felt it was worth sharing.
    I totally agree with you and Sarge Robbie.
