And as usual the logic for this thinking has none. Why is there a risk of coming off, is it because behahiour in the first instance is not appropriate for the conditions, usually going too fast, not paying attention to road surface despite already decreed in advance you know it to be not that great. So what happens when you wear a helmet, people take greater risk at those same points thus increases chance of an off than before, it does exacerbate this.
Doesn't wearing the helmet increase the chances of a head strike in any case where you are massively more likely to miss striking your head without?
Don't you find it somewhat more than coincidental that the weekend warrior and this is directly aimed at BC et al, that there has been significant increases in coming off the bike and getting injured/striking their heads, swiftly followed by the 'helmet saved my life' story, since helmet wearing became a thing?
I don't, they go hand in hand and is replicated in every country and at competition level. it's a total false logic that says, increased chance of coming off, so let's increase it further whilst increasing chance of a head strike by making our heads significantly heavier and bigger
Self serving to say the least.
Utility describes the situation well
My head is big enough without a h****t
