Sorry it's not working for you. Maybe try this one:Linky no workie
Yes, I work in the motorcycle apparel and helmet industry and when people complain about the price of a helmet, I try to explain to them that it's their head they are trying to protect.Wear a full face helmet. My friends buddy has swelling of the brain and an unsure prognosis. He was wearing a $20 cruiser top hat pirate helmet.
That was my reaction too, skidmark = rear tire locked up. If they had used the front brakes it would have most likely saved his life.RIP rider.
something struck me as odd though
"Two parallel skid marks roughly 60 yards long could be seen on the uphill lane westbound "
braking uphill is very efficient. a long skid means the rear was locked (you can only skid the front for a very short time before finding the ground). so they're going fast, see the turn coming up, and get on the rear brakes hard? did neither know how to use the front brake?
That is a great helmet! I don't own a Shoei but I sell them and know they are a premium helmet brand. Glad you were able to get the XXS for him! He must be so cute in it!i bought my 5 yr son a electric motorcycle. but after thinking about, his toy helmet wasnt good enough.
so i just got him a shoei rf-1000. it is an xxs !
Not really, the best protection is riding ability but I agree 100% with your sentiment. While I don't agree with having helmet laws, or seat belt laws, or a lot of other laws, I am a proponent of helmet usage. The only time I don't have a helmet on when on a bike is riding around my field giving my dog a ride, never get out of second gear, if I even make it there LOL.Yes, our gear is our only protection. Invest in the best gear you can afford!
