Another argument for wearing a helmet

Ran across this video on Pinterest. The next time you run into a rider insisting they don’t need to wear a helmet, show them this...

Dayyyyyummmm!

People just don't get it.
Big trucks want to get down the road just as bad as you do.

If you're dumb enough to try to squeeze past a truck with six inches of space, wearing a helmet isn't really going to save you in the long run.

Ya can't teach STUPID........ it's God given.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

I expected his head to be the same shape as the helmet.

Or was it?

But we all know the virtues of a good helmet.
Just let Superdave show you.

If you have a $10 head wear a $10 helmet. I prefer not to wear any. I like to feel the breeze flow through the last 4 hairs on the top of my head.
