I have to say this thread is the first in awhile that has gotten the dander up on many. I say if Chad wants to ride without a helmet so be it. I think it is foolish, and one head bonk on the ground could be a life changing experience. Recently a boy in the town I work in fell on his bike and hit his head. He was not wearing a helmet. After he had a headache and his parents did not pay much attention to it. Two days later he was dead from a brain hemorrhage. Say what you want it makes sense to wear a helmet.

We need less stupid people on this planet and more intelligent ones so let those that choose to do foolish things make their own choices. Survival of the fittest at it’s core.
